Game company Microsoft recently announced the full list of games that will be compatible with the Xbox Smart Deliver system.
The Smart Delivery system will ensure that players will get the best version of the games they own for their console, across generations. It will be available for all developers and all Xbox Game Studios titles that are optimized for Xbox Series X like Halo Infinite.
Microsoft then explains how the Smart Delivery system works. Players who purchase the Xbox One version of the game will get the best version for their console. If they decide to jump to the Xbox Series X version, they will get the best version for that console without any cost. It will not limit to games in digital form because physical copies will also support this system.
Check out the different scenarios in which Smart Deliver will work across generations.
If you own Gears 5 or are loving it via Xbox Game Pass now, you can play it today on Xbox One. Then, if you pick up an Xbox Series X this holiday, all it takes is a push of a button to download it and you’ll have the Optimized version of Gears 5 – available on day 1 at launch with the console – at your fingertips.
When Halo Infinite launches alongside Xbox Series X and Xbox One this holiday, you only have to buy the game once and you’ll get the best version for whichever console you own, or both. If you pick up Xbox Series X for your living room, Smart Delivery will recognize that and deliver you the Optimized version there. If you decide to move your existing Xbox One to a bedroom or the office, Smart Delivery will recognize that too and deliver that version when you’re playing on Xbox One.
Lastly, some new and existing Xbox One titles will be Optimizing their games after the Xbox Series X launches. For example, if you buy Cyberpunk 2077 when it launches on September 17, you’ll be set to explore Night City on Xbox One. If you pick up Xbox Series X at launch this holiday, you can play it there too in compatibility mode picking up exactly where you left off. Then, when CD PROJEKT RED delivers an Xbox Series X Optimized version of Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll automatically get upgraded once it’s available at no additional cost.
Smart Delivery will be enabled for Xbox Game titles that will leverage it. Outside the Xbox Game Studios titles, it will be up to the developers to determine if they will take advantage of the system or not. Backwards compatibility will be supported and all purchases, progression, and entire gaming legacy will move forward to the Xbox Series X.
