Some hugely anticipated games just joined the Xbox One backward compatibility program?and they may have confirmed a leak that even more are on the way.

Front and center is the fourth game in the Elder Scrolls series, Oblivion. Hailed by many as the best game in the series (though others split that call between Morrowind and Skyrim), Oblivion has been one of the most-requested titles since the backward compatibility program started up.

World War II shooter Medal of Honor: Airborne also joins the program today, expanding the roster of games for FPS fans. It’s followed by fantasy puzzle platformer Trine 2 and arcade game AstroPop, meaning that no matter what your tastes, you’ll likely find a fun game in this latest batch of compatible titles.

While it’s not confirmed, an earlier leak from Microsoft’s Black Friday sale page suggested that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 would be joining the program soon. Now that we’ve got official word on Oblivion, it seems more likely that we’ll be seeing Modern Warfare 3 soon.
