A deleted tweet by a Spanish tech YouTuber claims that Xbox fans will get some "very interesting" news on February 17. Sadly, there are no details to talk about right now, but it is very likely that the backward compatibility update that promises double frame rate for old games locked at 30 fps will be finally unveiled.

Tweets, Facebook or blog posts and other kinds of news items that end up deleted shortly after being published often mention events that will happen but are not supposed to go public yet. This week, it looks like Spanish tech YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits was faster than he should have with a rather vague Xbox-related post.

The translated version of the tweet that has been deleted in the meantime reads the following: "On February 17, Xbox fans are going to have some very interesting content on the channel. I can't say more until that day. Thanks to Xbox for giving me early access so I can prepare my coverage in advance!" However, he also posted that the news is covered by an NDA until February 17 at 6 PM, but it will surely leak until then.

Last year, Microsoft revealed that backward compatible Xbox games locked at 30 fps would get their frame rate doubled without any developer input. Now, it looks like we will finally see that promise come to fruition via a software update. For now, everything is still in rumor territory, so be sure to take it with a bit of salt.
