The original Call of Duty: Black Ops could be coming to the Xbox One via Backwards Compatibility this month.
According to the website, while it’s been rumored that the game will eventually be backwards compatible, the date was in doubt up until now. With the German leak that gave out the information, Call of Duty fans may see one of the objectively better Call of Duty games coming to current-gen consoles alongside games like Mafia 2.
Call of Duty: Black Ops will be one of the more high-profile games to come to the Xbox One via backwards compatibility, alongside games like Halo: Reach, Tekken Tag 2, and Just Cause 2.
Black Ops had been teased with backwards compatibility since late January, but its release date had been in doubt up until the rough estimate given out now.
Microsoft’s Backwards Compatibility service launched just last November with 104 games, which in the space of three months has risen to 130, with more apparently being worked on all the time.
Now that Black Ops II has been released and Halo Wars 2 has its own Halo Waypoint page, not to mention the inklings that Skate 4 may soon be released, some enterprising gamers may find it a good time to go through classic or well-loved video game series to bring themselves up to speed on what all the fuss is about.
