Fans of the original Xbox have been chomping at the bit since this year’s Electric Entertainment Expo, when Microsoft unveiled backward compatibility with the first Xbox, and it’s library of cult-classic titles. Since then, we’ve heard little in the way of BC announcements aside from the initial Crimson Skies, and Fusion Frenzy.

Fortunately, in an interview with GameSpot, Xbox head Phil Spencer has assured everyone that things are still going according to plan. “We’re close, we’re really close,” he says before confirming that means backward compatibility should launch by the end of the year. Microsoft has been going all-in on the release of the Xbox One X next month, so we should expect to hear something shortly after launch.
