Over the course of the week it had leaked the news of the release of Red Dead Redemption for Xbox One, as one of the titles that will be part of the Xbox 360 backward compatibility program on Xbox One, along with Left 4 Dead 2, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. The news was reported by a NeoGAF user who not only confirmed the presence of the Rockstar title on the store (by searching for the “rockohoward” tag) but which he had also successfully downloaded.

Microsoft today announced that Red Dead Redemption for Xbox One was released publicly by mistake and was subsequently deleted from the store. Microsoft has also clarified that any attempt to access the title download page, through the tag, is a violation of the Xbox Live Code of Conduct.

Mayor Nelson announced on Reddit that Microsoft is testing the emulator on all Xbox 360 games that will be part of the backwards compatibility program on Xbox One, all to ensure an excellent gaming experience. Due to an error, some of these trial titles, in the Red Dead Redemption case, were accidentally made public, only to be later deleted.

Nelson finally said that more information regarding the backward compatibility program will be announced shortly, so we just have to wait for an official announcement.
