    Unless they announce something, we have no way of knowing.

    I believe the specific statement made was “they had reached the end of their ability to bring games over due to both legal and technical limitations.”

    In other words the games that haven’t come I haven’t come because either they’re contractually blocked from doing so, or there is something that does not allow them to function with the tools that allow for these games to be ported to the current consoles

    Any game based on any form of intellectual property such as sports, movies, or music is unlikely ever to return due to thr expense except as a full remaster, as the expense of renewing the licenses will not be recouped. This includes games that have licensed popular music in the background

    Is there a way i could request them to bring it back
    From what i understand they reason the backwards compatibility program ended was mostly due to licensing and legal restraints.

    Bring back lost planet 2

    You would have to reach out to the developers of the game to share your ideas of backwards compatibility as Microsoft has ended the backward compatibility voting program.
