Call of Duty


 

A handful of Call of Duty games have found their way into the Xbox One’s backward compatibility program, but now the service is getting the game that started the Call of Duty hype train as we know it.

The critically-acclaimed Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is becoming backward compatible today, March 29th, as announced by Xbox’s Major Nelson on Twitter. For those that don’t have the original game (as if), Xbox is cutting its price as part of the Xbox Spring Sale.

The timing of this announcement is curious, as Call of Duty fans are also awaiting word on the recently leaked Modern Warfare 2 Remastered. Publisher Activision recently promised a major reveal before the month of March is out, but now we’ve had two—the reveal of Call of Duty: WWII‘s second expansion and now this—and neither have been a Modern Warfare 2 Remastered reveal. With reports claiming the game is real and the leaked retail listings dating its launch as April 30th, it seems like its announcement window is closing, but perhaps Activision will still squeeze it into this month.
