Rumor: Call of Duty 2016 To Come With Xbox One Backwards Compatible MW1 And MW2

For Xbox One owners, you might be able to get Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2 if you pre-order this year’s Call of Duty 2016 from Infinity Ward.

This new rumor comes from TheTechGame who heard from a “credible source” that Activision will be offering Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 with this year’s game as a pre-order bonus. The games will be the original Xbox 360 versions that will be Xbox One backwards compatible.

To put more validity to this rumor, many other publishers have been doing the same thing with their new releases. Fallout 3 came free with Fallout 4, Alan Wake is being offered with Quantum Break and the entire Gears of War back catalog came with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.

Since Activision has no plans to make HD remasters of the Modern Warfare games, this is the only way you could play them on the Xbox One console. For some backwards compatible games, performance improves over the original Xbox 360 versions offering faster loading times and smoother graphics.

Not to mention the two Modern Warfare games were developed by Infinity Ward who is the same developer making Call of Duty 2016. It would make sense to offer the previous games as pre-order bonuses.

It’s worth mentioning the backwards compatible Modern Warfare games should only be available for the Xbox One version of Call of Duty 2016. This is because the PS4 does not have backwards compatibility.
