Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the last Call of Duty title released on Xbox 360 that has not been made backwards compatible with the Xbox One, not counting Black Ops III which launched for both console generations three years ago. There have been rumors that the game might be remastered with the same treatment that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare got in 2016 with Modern Warfare Remastered, but those who have kept their disc should be able go back to it. The game turns a decade old next year, so we will see if Activision decides to celebrate it with a remaster.

Modern Warfare 2 took the groundbreaking multiplayer of Call of Duty 4 and pushed it further with more weapons, perks, and killstreaks. There was even a secret killstreak at 25 kills that nuked the entire map, wiping out both teams and ending the game prematurely. The campaign was controversial with mainstream media when one mission, “No Russian,” had the player infiltrate a Russian terrorist cell and take part in a mass shooting at an airport.
