(Update) Morrowind and four other original Xbox titles seem set to hit Xbox One backward compatibility

We'll find out for sure later today

[Update: Xbox just confirmed these five and whole lot more. As it turns out, NINETEEN original Xbox games are hitting backward compatibility throughout the month. On April 17, Blinx: The Time Sweeper, Breakdown, Conker: Live & Reloaded, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Hunter: The Reckoning, Jade Empire, Panzer Dragoon Orta, and SSX 3 become backward compatible; on April 26, Destroy All Humans, Full Spectrum Warrior, Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction, MX Unleashed, Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory (exclusive to Europe), Star Wars: Battlefront, Star Wars Battlefront II, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords, and Star Wars: Republic Commando join the program.]

One of the highlights of Microsoft's E3 2017 was the reveal that original Xbox games would come to Xbox One through the backward compatibility program. However, it has been a relatively slow process. We're now 10 months removed from the announcement and there are only 13 titles to choose from. That number seems like it'll grow imminently.

Last week, Microsoft teased a "big update" to original Xbox backward compatibility as part of today's Inside Xbox show. Thanks to some well-timed leaks, we're reasonably sure we know what to expect. Listings for Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Destroy All Humans, MX Unleashed, Panzer Elite Action, and Full Spectrum Warrior all appeared on the Xbox store today. They have since been pulled.

Assuming this list is accurate, it has some highly-regarded games from the early 2000s. Also, it'll mean that the past three Elder Scrolls titles are all available on the same console. We'll find out later today if this leak pans out, and we'll update the article accordingly.
