Call of Duty 3 joins the Xbox One backward compatible ranks

The Call of Duty franchise is slowly making its way to Xbox One via backward compatibility, with Call of Duty 3 the latest to join the ranks.

Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb made the announcement via Twitter, with the game joining Call of Duty 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops on the backward compatible list. The title was the last set in WW2, and marked Treyarch's first game in the franchise. Call of Duty 2 was added last month, with Black Ops being the first in the franchise added in May.

Five of the top six most requested games for porting to Xbox One are from the CoD franchise, with Black Ops 2 now topping the list. Other requested titles include Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3 and World at War. It is unlikely that Modern Warfare will the BC treatment, given the game is getting a remaster by Raven Software as part of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare package
