One of the most requested Xbox One backwards compatible games is finally coming to the console. Xbox live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb revealed on Twitter that you'll be able to play (and buy, if you don't already own it) Red Dead Redemption on Xbox One within days.

Rockstar's open-world Western game is currently the third most-requested Xbox 360 game on Microsoft's official backwards compatibility poll (opens in new tab), behind Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 at No. 1 and Skyrim at No. 2 (with Skyrim getting a remastered Special Edition (opens in new tab) I wouldn't hold my breath for the latter). And Red Dead Redemption was briefly playable on Xbox One (opens in new tab) back in February, indicating that Microsoft has been working on it for a while.
With Red Dead Redemption coming back from the past, this would be a great time for Rockstar to announce a sequel. Yep, any time you want to do that would be fine by me, Rockstar.
