Call of Duty 3 joins the Xbox One backward compatible ranks

You would think the franchise is popular or something.


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

      Nice, I really enjoyed the Xbox version of the game. Wasn't huge on the QTEs, but it sure beat the motion controls in the PS3 and wii versions. Would love to play through the 360 version.

        ...and reading the was not Treyarch's first game in the series (they did Big Red One previously, which was pretty A-OK) nor was it the last WW2 game in the series (World at War and World at War Final Fronts share that honor)
