The release of Black Ops 2 on Xbox One backwards compatibility has ignited a rush back to an Xbox 360 classic.
Treyarch’s 2012 shooter was for a long while atop the most requested list for the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility program.
Microsoft kept a tight lip about the game’s prospective addition to the program, with Activision seemingly holding the title back for a Modern Warfare Remastered-like release at the end of the year.
However, out of nowhere yesterday, Microsoft confirmed that Black Ops 2 was finally available on backwards compatibility, and unsurprisingly it saw an influx of players.
At time of publishing, Black Ops 2 on Xbox One has more than 100,000 people playing online, closer to 125,000 (thanks to Charlie Intel).
That’s more than what’s online playing Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered, probably combined.
That’s an insane amount of people online playing a four-year game, one that has four successors. Yet another game that goes to show how important Xbox One’s backwards compatibility is to Xbox gamers.
