Playable on Xbox Series X?

UFC 4 Creative Director, Brian Hayes, had the following to say regarding the game’s availability on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Please see below for a quote from UFC 4’s Brian Hayes. 

“If both consoles support backwards compatibility for Gen 4 games then, presumably, fans will be able to play UFC 4 on their Gen 5 consoles. 

We haven't yet had an opportunity to test this out and determine whether any additional development work is required to leverage Backward Compatibility, but we hope to see UFC 4 playable on Gen 5 hardware using that feature.” 

So it sounds like with any luck UFC 4 will be available on next-gen consoles - head here to find out more about UFC 4 on next-gen.
