Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Joins Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

Activision and Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is finally backwards compatible with the Xbox One, Microsoft’s Major Nelson announced on Twitter today.

The sequel to the classic Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare originally launched in November 2009 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It is one of the last Call of Duty titles to join the Xbox One backwards compatibility program. Here is the full list of backwards compatible Call of Duty titles to see what made it before this game:

  • Call of Duty 2
  • Call of Duty 3
  • Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops II
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts
  • Call of Duty: World at War
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

The only Xbox 360 games in the franchise to not make the program are Call of Duty Classic, an HD version of the original Call of Duty released for Xbox Live Arcade, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III, which launched for both Microsoft consoles in 2015.

Those who have held onto the disc only need to put in the console and install it. Modern Warfare 2 is also available for digital download, and both the game and its two DLC map packs are currently 25% and 35% off, respectively, for Xbox Live Gold members.
