Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Update: Another 'Call of Duty' Title Added To The List; More 'Call of Duty' Titles Soon?
Microsoft has added another "Call of Duty" title to its long list of backwards compatible titles for the Xbox One.
Following the addition of "Call of Duty 2" in August, Microsoft's Director for Programming for Xbox One Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has recently announced on Twitter that "Call of Duty 3" has also been included in the list.
Treyarch's "Call of Duty 3" was first released on the Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, Xbox and Xbox 360 in 2006. The third installment in the franchise was also one of the best selling titles of November 2006 in North America, and has sold over 7.2 million units worldwide by November 2013, IGN reported.
"Call of Duty 3" is the third "Call of Duty" title to become backwards compatible, joining "Call of Duty 2" and "Call of Duty: Black Ops." Fans are now hoping that there will be more "Call of Duty" titles to be added to the list soon.
The demand for more "Call of Duty" titles to be backwards compatible is also going strong. As of the moment, "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" still holds the top spot on the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility poll.
Five out of the top ten spots are still occupied by "Call of Duty" titles, namely "Call of Duty: Black Ops II," "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2," "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare," "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" and "Call of Duty: World at War."
Other most requested titles include "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim," "Mass Effect 2 & 3," "Grand Theft Auto" and "Batman: Arkham City."
A few more titles were added to the backwards compatibility list in the past week: "Word Puzzle," "Bound By Flame," "The Maw" and "Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown." There are currently 115 titles in the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility list.
Stay tuned for more Xbox One backwards compatibility news and updates.
