In terms of backwards compatibility support for Xbox 360 games on Xbox One, Xbox fans have been able to look forward to a new batch of games with the support very frequently. There’s now over 250 Xbox 360 games that can be played on Xbox One, and the overall amount of hours that gamers have spent playing Xbox 360 games on Xbox One is truly impressive.

However, there are still some big games that have yet to receive the backwards compatibility support, with one of them being Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Xbox boss Phil Spencer was recently asked by a fan on Twitter when the game would be getting the support, to which he replied with “I like the progress on [backwards compatibility]. We’d like to have all and work on [third-party] games is always a partnership with publisher.”

So while he didn’t address when (or if) Black Ops 2 would be getting backwards compatibility support at all, seeing as other earlier games in the series have gotten the support it is likely more a matter of when rather than if. Both Call of Duty 3 and Call of Duty: World At War got the support last month, so it wouldn’t surprise me if the Black Ops 2 support was on the horizon.

This week saw 4 more games get backwards compatibility support, though they were definitely less popular games compared to other recent releases. You can learn more about them by clicking right here.
