Three months after Call of Duty: Black Ops became backwards compatible on Xbox One, Microsoft’s Larry Hryb tweeted out today that Call of Duty 2 will also be backwards compatible.
Call of Duty 2 was released in 2005 back when the Call of Duty series was a sole World War II shooter.
This is the second Call of Duty installment that has been released on the Xbox One. According to the Backwards Compatibility Xbox Feedback page on Xbox.com, Call of Duty has five of the top six games with Black Ops 2 being on top with over 187,000 votes followed by Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 3, and World at War. Even with the massive support for these games, Microsoft doesn’t guarantee any game will make it which is keeping players on edge.
COD 2 will be available to players on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 20 USD and it will take up 5.27 GB. However, players who are new to the game can try out the free demo before buying the game.
Players who are looking to go back on a nostalgia trip to the World War II era and take a break from the advanced Warfare games will find Call of Duty 2 a welcoming experience.
With the upcoming Call of Duty: Remastered coming to consoles and PC this fall, there will be a lot of opportunities along with Call of Duty 2 for players who are new to the series to play the games that made the franchise so popular on next gen.
