Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is Backwards Compatible on Xbox One

You can now play the entire Black Ops trilogy on Xbox One. 

Following rumors from last week, Microsoft and Activision have now made it official—the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is now backwards compatible on Xbox One.

Microsoft recently confirmed the good news via the Xbox Wire before going on to reiterate why the game is such a memorable part of the Call of Duty legacy:

“Black Ops 2 was a big shift for the Call of Duty series, which had previously been set only on generations-old wars and modern day conflicts. In addition to continuing the story of Call of Duty: Black Ops protagonist Alex Mason during the late 1980s Cold War, the game introduces Alex’s son David, who forty years later battles the same foe that tormented his father. This part of Black Ops 2, set in 2025, introduces a number of futuristic technologies that has since appeared in a number of Call of Duty games since.”
