Good news Xbox fans, the big boys are finally coming to the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Program. Microsoft gaming head Phil Spencer teased that Call of Duty series could finally be making its way to the latest gen console.
The software giant told fans to expect some big game titles to join the over 200 backwards compatible titles for the Xbox One. The news could not have come any sooner as fans have been clamoring to have their favorite titles included in the program.
These include titles such as The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Mass Effect, and the LEGO Games. Fans also demanded that the Call of Duty games be made backwards compatible namely Black Ops 2 and the Modern Warfare Trilogy.
Modern Warfare Trilogy To Be Made Backwards Compatible Soon?
While he did not mention any specific games, he did reveal that they have some titles they are really looking forward to. Criterion Games later tweeted to fans that Burnout Paradise is currently being made backwards compatible.
With that in mind, the list goes on as Microsoft added another title from the Xbox 360. Word Puzzle is now available for previous owners in the Xbox One’s Games and Apps section.
It’s available for free for those who previously bought the game. As for those who did not own the game, they can still purchase it from the Xbox One Store.
First launched in 2007, Word Puzzle is an Xbox Live arcade game for the Xbox 360. The game received 200 votes on the Backwards Compatibility feedback website before it was added.
Word Puzzle, in addition to the three other titles released last week rounds up the list to a whopping 250 games. For many though, this does not mean anything if their favorite titles are still on the waiting list to be included in the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Program.
