The perfect source for gaming uptodate news
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is finally a part of the Xbox One Backward Compatibility library and it is available to play on your Xbox One or Xbox One X starting today.
Announced via Twitter by Major Nelson, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 joins an ever-expanding library that includes every other mainline Call of Duty game, except the 2003 original, and is playable in some form on Xbox One.
In addition, if you don’t already own Modern Warfare 2, it is on sale this week for $14.99 USD digitally on the Xbox store.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 released in 2009 and is one of the most celebrated entries in the storied franchise. In our review of Modern Warfare 2, we scored it a 9.5/10 and said “When you look at the total package, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is hands-down one of the best first-person shooters out there, and a truly amazing offering across any system.”
Back in March of this year, a listing appeared of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, although nothing has come of that as of yet, but wouldn’t be too surprising following the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered in 2016.
This year’s Call of Duty, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, will be released on October 12, 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and will not contain a traditional story mode, but will include a battle royale mode, Blackout, that is getting a beta next month.
