Phil Spencer, the president of Xbox, has denied that an Xbox One backwards compatible version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be coming to the console’s service sometime this week, defying rumors that said otherwise. Spencer said this on his personal Twitter account, saying the rumors were not true.

Like most of the other later Call of Duty games that came to the Xbox 360, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has been one of the most-requested games to be put on the Xbox One backwards compatibility service.

However, for now, a backwards compatible version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 isn’t going to be coming, though the original Black Ops, along with all of the Modern Warfare games, and even some of the older Call of Duty titles, have made it onto the Xbox One store. Black Ops 2 currently has over 200,000 votes of people that want to see it on the store’s backwards compatibility category.

While Spencer apologized and wished he had better news to tell people, it seems as if, for now, Black Ops fans will have to content themselves with other Call of Duty titles, or make use of some of the more than 300 games that have been ported over to the Xbox One, whether they’re from the Call of Duty franchise or not.

While Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 still has a large number of players on all of its platforms, the demand for a backwards compatible version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 shows that a lot of players likely want to go back to one of the last games on the Xbox 360 to play through the futuristic multiplayer and storyline of Black Ops 2 again.

Whether we’ll ever get a version like that remains to be seen, but hopefully Xbox will put it on the store soon.
