The passionate tweets and prayers of Xbox fans have been answered, since Microsoft is now adding the single most anticipated game to its backward compatibility program: Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

This means that if you own a copy of Black Ops II, you can now play it on your Xbox One—and if you don’t own it yet, you’ll now be able to grab a digital copy off the Xbox Store. It’s a good time to buy, since the Xbox Spring Sale just went live and offers fans a 50 percent discount on the game.

The game’s addition to the backward compatibility program has also come as a relief to several of Microsoft’s higher-ups, who’ve been dealing with thousands upon thousands of tweets request the game for more than a year. The head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, tweeted “Yes, finally.”

“Does this mean people will leave us alone now?” former Microsoft operations manager Eric “e” Neustadter joked in another Tweet.

“That remains to be seen,” replied Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb.
