Ever since Call of Duty: Black Ops II was added to Xbox One’s backward compatibility program, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 arguably took over the top spot as the most-requested title. Just take a look at any tweet from Major Nelson announcing a new backward compatible game, and it will have a hundred comments asking for Modern Warfare 2.
Hassling Larry Hyrb might have finally paid off, as it looks like Modern Warfare 2 is coming to Xbox One backward compatibility very soon.
The rumors started when Xbox One DVR, an online database that automatically updates when games are made compatible with Xbox’s DVR program, recently tweeted that Modern Warfare 2 had been added to the list. Since Xbox 360 didn’t have a DVR system, the only possible explanation would be that Modern Warfare 2 will be playable on Xbox One.

Xbox One DVR already has one clip of what appears to be someone playing Modern Warfare 2, though the game has not yet been made available on the Xbox Store.
Neither Microsoft nor Activision have confirmed the addition of Modern Warfare 2 to Xbox’s backward compatibility program, but if the rumors are true, Xbox One DVR stated that we can expect the game to be available sometime within the week. While this might not seem like a solid lead, Xbox One DVR predicted the arrival of Black Ops 2 in the same way, so we could very well be playing Modern Warfare 2 on our Xbox Ones very soon.
