‘Call of Duty: World at War’ Backward Compatibility Announced; CoD Games Now Purchasable for Xbox


Microsoft's Larry Hyrb or also known by his gamertag 'Major Nelson' has just announced "Call of Duty: World at War" is now available in Xbox One Backward Compatability. 

Last November 2015, Microsoft brought great happiness to all Xbox One users when they announced the backward compatibility. Gamers were once again able to play their all-time favorite games.Major Nelson announced on his Twitter post that the Callof Duty: World At War will be available on Xbox One backward compatibility. Now, all Call of Duty games which has backward compatibility can be bought for Xbox One.

Call of Duty games always have been in the top of the line as the most requested games. World at War isn't the first Call of Duty game that is playable in Xbox One, but it is certainly the most requested. To date, Xbox One owners can now play Call of Duty titles; Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Call of Duty: World at War, provided they have the hard or digital copy of the Xbox 360. For those gamers who haven't still get a hold of the games, it can be bought from online or local gaming store, or even you can pick them up digitally from the Xbox One store, Gamerant reported.

Microsoft needs the approval from the developers to release games as backward compatible. It's a bit surprising that World at War is being released just as Activision preparing to launch "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" and "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" Remastered.


This might be a kind of strategy from Activision to release two older "Call of Duty" games to backward compatibility as a free press in preparation for the launch of "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" this coming November. "Will Call of Duty: World at War" may disrupt the sales of the upcoming "Infinite Wars" and "Modern Warfare Remastered".
