Xbox One News: Backward Compatibility update adds Call of Duty Black Ops 2 to Library?


#BlackOps2 #XboxOneXbox One News: Backward Compatibility update adds Call of Duty Black Ops 2 to Library? : Xbox fans recently spotted that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 had been listed on the Xbox website as a Backwards Compatible game, soon to be made available. After further digging, another fan had noticed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 had also been listed as a Deal with Gold offer alongside other similar titles.

Black Ops 2 for Xbox One Backwards Compatibility was found listed in-between the original Black Ops (which was made backwards compatible in XXX) and the Black Op 3 DLC options, which most recently added the fourth and final DLC XXX last week.

In addition the Deals with Gold offers usually includes a range of discounts on both Xbox One and Xbox 360 games, however, this week also included Black Ops 2 listed as part of the BC program.

So with all this evidence, is Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 backwards compatible? The answer is unfortunately a bit disappointing. It all appears to have been one big mix up, which Microsoft has now changed online.

Just to make sure a number of fans have inundated Microsoft’s Larry Hyrb with questions to double check. One player asked if Black Ops 2 could be announced as Backwards Compatible on Tuesday, October 11, and Hryb eventually responded with disappointing results.

“That was my error. Sorry. Not coming to BC tomorrow,” Hryb replied. Despite clarifying that Black Ops 2 will not be made Backwards Compatible later today, Hryb hasn’t ruled out the game one day joining the service.

When you consider that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 remains the most requested Backwards Compatibility title from the Xbox 360, with a total vote count of 193,000, it does seem like a bit of a no brainer to make the game Backwards Compatible one day.

For the time being though, Xbox One fans can still enjoy a multitude of older Call of Duty titles, which not too long ago also added Call of Duty 2 , XXX and Call of Duty: World at War.

If you want to try something outside the shooter section there’s also plenty more to pick from, with over 250 titles playable. Most recently Microsoft added Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Puzzle Quest Galactrix, and Puzzle Quest 2.

To play any of the games listed as Backwards Compatible by Microsoft, you simply need to dust off your old copy, or if you purchased digitally, redownloaded. But equally if you don’t own any of the titles, a new backwards compatible section on the Xbox store also means you can download these classics once again. Source: dailystar
