Did Ubisoft just leak a batch of backwards compatible games for Xbox One?

New image on Reddit may give a glimpse of titles to come in the near future.

It's no secret that Ubisoft has been planning to release some of its biggest franchises of the last generation on Xbox One's backwards compatibility program. In fact, a couple (Rainbow Six 1 & 2) are planned as freebies if you pre-order Rainbow Six: Siege on Xbox One.

A new image has been posted on the Ubisoft Mexico Facebook page and was discovered by users on Reddit; it looks a lot like the promotional images that Microsoft has used for its backwards compatibility campaign since it was unveiled during E3 2015. 

The image was posed with a question that translates to "Which Ubisoft game on Xbox 360 do you want to be compatible on Xbox One?"

Just to be clear, this is not a confirmation that these games will get backwards compatibility support, but given their pedigree, it is certainly likely.

There is no doubt that any one of the games displayed in the picture is deserving of backwards compatibility support, and all could (and probably will) come for free at some point alongside a future release in their respective series, especially if Siege's promotion is successful. Several other prominent publishers like Bethesda and Square Enix are also packaging in older games to boost pre-order numbers on Xbox One, so expect this sort of practice to become a trend.
