Call of Duty: Black Ops II is now backward compatible

Update: The Call of Duty: Black Ops II player count has increased to over 100,000 since the game was announced for backward compatibility. Our frame rate tests reveal that the game runs smoother on Xbox One, hardly dropping below 60 FPS during the campaign which was a major cause for concern on Xbox 360.

Phil Spencer teased a major announcement today and a few minutes later Larry Hryb confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops II was backward compatible. The game is part of the Xbox Spring Sale so be sure to take advantage of the pricing if you’re interested in the title. You can purchase it on Xbox Marketplace right now.

Harness the power of near-future technology and advanced robotics to pull the world back from the brink of annihilation.
