The gamers have spoken, and they want Call of Duty. Xbox One gamers will soon get to play their old Xbox 360 games through a backwards compatibility update, but only a set list of titles will be supported. Microsoft is giving gamers the chance to voice their opinions on what should make the list on the official Xbox UserVoice page.
Right now, "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" is in the lead with 78,142 votes, just ahead of "Red Dead Redemption" on 76,078. There are five Call of Duty games in the top 10, with all three Modern Warfare games and the original Black Ops grabbing the top spots alongside Black Ops 2.
It's hard not to see why. The Call of Duty franchise is a global cultural phenomenon, selling over 175 million copies worldwide. Since the franchise launched in 2003, there's been a copy of Call of Duty sold every two seconds. In November, publisher Activision announced that the franchise has made more than $10 billion.
Gamers are desperate to get Call of Duty onto their Xbox One. Outside of the top 10, every Call of Duty game has received votes, even "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare," despite the fact that an Xbox One version launched at the same time as the 360 version.
The initial backwards-compatibility preview update launched on June 15, ahead of a wider release in the fall. The preview contains 21 games, such as "A Kingdom for Keflings," "Viva Pinata: Trouble In Paradise" and "Perfect Dark Zero." At the time of writing, there are no Call of Duty games included in the preview update, but with the vocal fans demanding support, that may be about to change.
