Call of Duty: Black Ops will be available on Xbox One via backwards compatibility
A leak discovered by Spanish news site Solo Xbox One revealed today that the original Call of Duty: Black Ops game will be among the many titles available on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility.
The reader in question found a downloadable Annihilation map pack for the game on the Xbox One Marketplace. Annihilation was the third downloadable map pack for the Call of Duty title.
"One of our readers has given us notice that you can install on Xbox One, part of the contents of Call of Duty Black Ops in its Spanish version."
It's interesting that Call of Duty games would be available through backwards compatibility, despite the success of the franchise. There are a lot of questions that need to be answered.
Will the game have active multiplayer or online Zombie Mode servers? Would enough people play to make matchmaking possible, even if there were servers?
Only time will tell if the rest of the Call of Duty titles be compatible as well? Or whether it will affect the supposed development of a Modern Warfare Collection? Backwards compatibility may just be for the Treyarch games alone.
The reader who made this discovery submitted three photos to prove the game's existence on Xbox One, and they've spread through the Internet like wildfire, preventing Microsoft and Activision from covering them up.
It's only a matter of time before Microsoft and Activision officially announce that Call of Duty: Black Ops is available through backwards compatibility. Hopefully all of our questions will be answered sooner rather than later.
Tell us in the comments what you think about previous Call of Duty games becoming available via backwards compatibility. Is it a good idea? Is there an audience for it?
