Back in November, Microsoft confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 1 will soon be available on backwards compatible on Xbox One. However, both December and January list of games have been announced and Black Ops 1 was not included.

Earlier this week, Microsoft announced that going forward they would be changing their release plans. Instead of waiting to release backwards compatible games every month, the games will now release once they are ready to go. Microsoft has stated that ‘being ready’ means the title has been approved by Xbox’s engineering team and the publisher.

Earlier today, on the Spain Xbox One store, Black Ops 1’s Annihilation DLC has started to show up for fans to purchase / download. If you switch your Xbox One’s region to Spain, you should be able to see the Annihilation DLC pack on your Xbox One console’s store.

While a release date for Black Ops on Xbox One backwards compatibility is not confirmed, this could hint at a possible release very soon. With all backwards compatible titles, players will be able to play all DLC packs and the entire core game on their Xbox One console, as long as they own each DLC pack and the game. Players are not required to own any DLCs to play the base game.

Microsoft sent a statement to AR12Gaming earlier claiming that they still do not have any announcements to make regarding a possible release date for Black Ops.

“As for right now though, we don’t have any details to share for Call of Duty: Black Ops, Skate 3, Halo Wars, Forza Motorsport 4 or Forza Horizon.”

We will update when Microsoft provides more details.

  • Damn, that’s nice. Even less reason to keep an 360 since DLC’s coming too.
    Not like i’ll have that luxary. Sony’s been hyping PS2 releases so much that the PS3 goes neglected. :/

  • The Flash

    They obviously want it to run as perfect as possible on Xbone so they’re taking the time, plus ATVI maybe deciding when it can be released, perhaps when BO3 DLC 1 comes for PS4, Xbone owners get to re-visit BO1 and all of its DLC – which is better than BO3 so far.

    • XboxISdead

      Yea thats way beter hahaba so u payed 300 bucks on a 900p system to play games that r YEARs OLD

      • universalmodder

        Yo we know you are a sony fanboy so no need for this talk but xbox one is really steeping up there game and its getting a lot better

        • fires

          They still have many ways to go. People still have mistrust with the Xbox brand ever since they tried to have Online DRM and had sold the Xbone with kinect on launch

          • The Flash

            I couldnt care a less on whether the PS4 is a better console, if i had the money, i’d have neither and stick to a gaming PC. But i started with the 360 which IS better than the PS3 and seeing as i was paying for Live on that, i wasnt paying twice for the P$4 as well. My preference is the Xbone, because of things like the controller, multi-tasking, Crackdown 3, BC etc.

          • Peter Griffin

            “[…]if i had the money, i’d have both consoles and a gaming PC”.

            Fixed. 😉
            If you have the money, there’s no need to bother with choices anymore.

          • The Flash

            thats true, but i’d rather have one system where i can play everything, rather than several different systems.

          • Peter Griffin

            But again, why do you bother with such things if you would be rich enough to have all of them? Besides, some games offer a better global experience on console (PS4 or One as they are very similar), while others are better on PC. Why think small?
            All Call of Duty games since (and including) MW2 are better on console. (because of the number of players). Most of the sport games as well (football). PC equally have it’s share of games who are more suited, or only playable on them (League of Legends, or Elder Scrolls games because of mods).

          • ShadowMaster862

            Yeah, that wasn’t great for marketing, even though I love the console.

        • Capten ermirica

          The Xbox is a heap of junk. How stupidly insanely brain dead do you have to be to spend money on one knowing full well how superior the ps4 is. guuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh???

          • Michael Staunton

            Consoles are a heap of junk, How stupidly insanely braindead do you have to be to spend money on them knowing full well how superior the pc is. guhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh???

          • Capten ermirica

            Hahahaha touché my friend???????

          • ArtisanKnight

            Atleast the console ports of games work and are good, meanwhile, your FOV slider, and graphics cards which are so superior, are irrelevant when you have a bad port.

          • cough cough mortal kombat x console superiority cough cough

          • ArtisanKnight

            Let’s face it, cod is better on consoles, which is my point.

          • PC MASTER RACE

            all cod ports are amazing on pc dafuq

          • Eddie Tupy

            oh god, ignorance really is bliss. Only thing bad about pc version is that console scrubs are the majority and are oblivious to the PCs potential and therefor have less cod players. the PC ‘ports’ are better for alot of reasons and btw its not a port as it was made with the console versions.

          • ArtisanKnight

            Ignorance is bliss. You reasons as to why the Pc isn’t the best place to play are vacuous. With all the Pc master race shit going on, I’m pretty sure most people know that the pC has more potential. Of course that isn’t the reason people don’t play PC more. That’s just as dumb as your are.

          That’s just rude calling them fanboys, they’re actually Sony Ponies

          its all about the games not the machine you play it on. unless its a pc since pc rules all machines figuratively and literally

      • Nope, PS4 is dead

        lol you payed 300 bucks to buy remastered games that you already own at full 60$ price

        • Eddie Tupy

          he appears to have more money than you.

      • The Flash

        Just because a game is old, doesnt make it bad, and when on earth did i say i bought the console (which for me was only like £250) just for BC – when i bought it, this hadnt been announced, it was just an added bonus, besides least you dont have to pay to play your games again unlike PSNow.

      • [EV] BLISS

    • Michael Staunton

      Or you could get a pc and play custom zombies on black ops 3 graphics and 100% will be remakes of past maps fixing the mistakes treyarch put in *COUGH* TranShit *cough*

      • The Flash

        I would so get a gaming PC if i had the money, i play WAW custom zombies on my laptop, so much better than most official 3arc stuff.

      • That won’t be coming out until really late 16 where it will probably be half assed and shitty like the port itself

    • CoDforever

      Its really not that much better than bo3 .. the hit detection is god awful and you will get bored in about 3 matches, trust me

      • The Flash

        i do get bored after 3 BO3 matches, especially as there are only 2-3 maps in rotation. As a larger view of BO1, campaign wasnt bad, and MP/Zombies was at its best, not been the same since.

        • Eddie Tupy

          although i dont agree with you completely i do agree bo1 was the best in terms of zombie maps, they are still good in bo2 and 3 so far but still.

          • The Flash

            well BO1 was my first COD, so i maybe slightly biased because of nostalgia, but i’ve never been a big fan of MP since BO1, I hated BO2 MP to start with but it grew on me the more i played it, and is far better than the last 3 outings. And Zombies had variation in BO1 and still kept the goal of the gamemode which is to survive, not do EEs.

    • thevempenator

      true dat

  • Brian

    From seeing the state of backwards compatibility games I wouldn’t want to play a 60 fps essential 360 game on my X1. They can barely get the games running like the original (which is understandable) resulting in 30 fps games running at 20 fps and sometimes lower

  • lunator100hd .

    I could buy an xbox one if they release mw3.

  • ___[!] I owned Black Ops 1 on PS3 and bought all the DLC on it. I would love to go back and play it’s campaign & some online. Maybe/hopefully they’ll add a few COD games to Games With Gold list. BO1-2, WaW, MW1-2-3 please MS! Still “wishing” for a remastered compliation but I’m not holding my breath.

      hello fanboy

    • Ak74u

      You obviously want or wish you had an Xbox that’s why you are bashing on it. So mature of you to name yourself that. Why don’t you just admit that both consoles look good. When I look at both of them they seem very similar and I honestly can’t tell the difference I don’t have the best eyesight but for shure they both look the same to me. Both systems have the same features too by the way and Xbox has been so much smoother since the update

    • 3pac umaru shukar

      Your display name confirms that you’re a troll without any kind of life whatsoever.

    • darren

      Yeah, you can really tell the difference of those 180 pixels. Yeah.

      • Kobrah

        900P = 1600×900 = 1 440k pixels
        10800 = 1920×1080 = 2 073.6k pixels

        Therefore 1080P actually has 633 600 more pixels… Just saying

        • Myth

          And yet if you actually cared about that… you would have the brains and go get a PC instead of paying for outdated tech…

          • Kobrah

            Why would you play CoD on the PC? LMAO

          • Michael Staunton

            Custom mod tools to black ops 3 and on waw and older cod games, Competitive COD started on pc just so you know, they only moved due to exclusivities 🙁

          • Luna

            Sometimes you can’t beat custom Zombie maps, exclusively on the PC.

    • ToonToons22

      Just face it, your attempts at trolling are poor. Why people upvote your comments is beyond me.

      You obviously don’t know jack about how better Xbox has been getting recently. In fact, with all the updates they have been adding, I would say that Xbox and PlayStation are on par with each other in terms of fun factor. You obviously want an Xbox and you troll Xbox news sites because you’re envious of the people who already have one.

      And seriously, bro? Arguing over 180 tiny pixels? Being the gamer I am and the fact that I’ve played on both consoles, I can’t tell the difference.

      Just stop trolling. It will be much easier for us both.

      • ArtisanKnight

        It’s just you. You Logic can not be of a “chief” because fanboy or not, the Xbox isn’t anything the Playstation wanted or wants to be.

        • Logic Chief

          i’m just saying like xbox sounds better. you text friends saying “i’m getting on xbox can you play?” it would never really sound right saying “i’m getting on playstation can you play?” It like xbox does not represent a console but it represents gaming in general. Like xbox to me represents so much fun to me getting home getting on playing cod with friends going into game chat and having people want to join our clan and having them sing the spongebob F-U-N song to join. it just created such a great sense of community and you wanted to get on and play everyday.

          • ArtisanKnight

            Maybe so, with the Xbox 360, but now, it’s a new generation and I don’t see PS falling behind Xbox in any factor this time around.

    • get out

    • Myth

      People like you are funny, they use the resolution to talk shit about the Xbox and yet when you bring up the fact that if you actually cared about graphics you wouldn’t have overpaid for outdated tech and would have bought a PC… and then you go back on “Who cares about graphics?!”

      You’re an idiot, you try and start a console war because you want act like you’re superior to everyone else. When in reality the differences between the two consoles are so minuscule they make no damned bit of difference… between PS4’s struggle to run some games at decent framerates because of their ignorant stance on 1080.

  • Will WilFredo Mendoza

    Wasnt there a rumor going around about PS Backwards Compatibility?!

    • sdfu

      Sony confirmed their working on something… Wont be as good as xbox’s way though… They’ll get back the game but you have to buy them back all with real money… So basically it disregards any ps2 – ps3 disk you ever had or downloaded

  • darren

    Btw, I bought some CP’s, to get some Gobblegums (out of Perkaholic), and the Rare Supply Drops are half off (100 CP’s) if you buy them with CP’s. Not with Cryptokeys though.

        Let’s please watch the language. I hate that word.

        He does have a point, though. Lots of veteran Call of Duty fans are certainly going to abandon BO3 in favor of a game they know and love.

        • Devin Wolfe

          People need to learn to move on from a playstyle and that is what AW and BO3 is doing make people learn instead of give them trophies all the time for doing the same shit.

      • lunator100hd .

        You can find 30k players on bo1? are you sure for that?

        • The Flash

          I have never seen more than that nowadays, and this is for X360, but saturday evenings for me if i go on, theres sometimes 25k online, not not all are necessarily playing a match.

      • FazalGaming

        wow! thats more than ghosts and advanced warfare combined

        • lunator100hd .

          Nobody knows the numbers in AW.

          • The Flash

            Something which really bothered me, i like to know how long i could be waiting in a lobby. Even BO3 with a % isn’t that great i like actual numbers like BO2 had.

            Every cod have numbers besides AW and bo3 , i would really want to hear an excuse for that.

          • Devin Wolfe

            Stating opinion as fact doesn’t make it true.

          • He never stated it as a fact or even implied it that way, should probably read it again.

            Oh, and I agree with that guy. Black Ops is indeed better.

          • Devin Wolfe

            Yes he did as soon as you say “X is shit” or “X is better” without saying “in my opinion” you are spouting your opinion as fact.

          • No, it really isnt. That is you assuming shit. You don’t have to say “in my opinion ” in order to express an opinion. Seriously, everything doesn’t need to be spelled out.

          • Devin Wolfe

            Yes it is and yes it does.

          • No it really doesn’t, it really doesn’t.

            You must be that guy that constantly reminds people what an opinion is, when everyone knows what an opinions and how they work.

            Like I said, you don’t to say “in my opinion” in order to express an opinion. If you truly believe that you have to say “imo” when expressing an opinion, you’re just ignorant.

          • Devin Wolfe

            Again no if you don’t call it your opinion ever then you are trying to pass it off as fact which it is not.

          • Again no. You really are ignorant with that shitty logic and ignorant thinking of yours. That’s not how it works. if I say for example, “Advanced Warfare sucks” that’s obviously subjective and an opinion anyone who is smart and is logical can see that, AND DOESN’T NEED IT TO BE SPELLED OUT FOR THEM (like you who thinks its to be spelled out from them like an idiot, smarten up) Just because you dont put “imo” in front of it doesnt mean you’re stating it as a fact. You thinking that only makes you look like an ignorant fool and all it is you assuming shit.

          • The Flash

            While it is my opinion, its not far off fact, when Ghosts and AW are the most poorly received CODs, hardly anyone plays Ghosts or AW – even though we cant see numbers, i’ve been stuck waiting in just a TDM lobby for some time.

      • Thomas the Tankswag

        VR gaming will never be big, it’ll be overpriced and so will have a low consumer base to start. Due to this, there will be little support from devs as there is little profit. As there is little support, no one will buy it so the cycle continues.

        This is the reason Xbox Kinect and PS Move failed so badly and also similar to the Wii Us death.

  • CrazyWolf

    Hey, Folks! I know it’s a bit off-topic, but I came across this comment on a YouTube video made by TheGamingRevolution regarding Ghosts 2. It could be another leak. Again, I know it’s off-topic, but you might wanna check it out. Seems pretty interesting to me. I’ll copy it right here so that we can discuss it. Watch out, though, ’cause it’s a long one. Here it goes: “How’s it going? Love you vids. But for now, I’ll just leave this here: CoD 2016 is Ghosts 2. I think you kinda saw that coming. Now the game will start off a couple years after the first one. The Federation has been hit pretty hard, or so people think, and the americans are trying to push them back. We will play mainly as Hesh in this one, but we’ll also play as a new member of the ghosts from time to time. We will also meet new ghosts aside from the ones from the previous game such as Merrick and Keegan. After a while, the plot will go into the year 2030’ish. There will be a plot point however that will change the course of the war. Weapons are, again, present day weapons, but with a more futuristic look, and there will also be very few rather fictional guns. Also, the US and the Federation’s tech has developed over the course of the years (the US haven’t developed that much, but whatever), thus the game will have a slightly more futuristic style. Don’t worry, it will still be boots on the ground. There will be a new perk/equipment for multiplayer: exoskeleton. Wait! Keep calm and hear me out on this. The exo is nothing like Advanced Warfare. The exo in Ghosts 2 is a top tier piece of gear and one of the last things a player can unlock. It boosts your speed, gives you unlimited sprint, increases accuracy, and allows you to jump higher. No, I’m not talking about double jump or thruster pack. You just hold the jump button and release it to jump higher. How high? I don’t know that part. And finally, character customization returns. This intel comes from a pretty good source of mine that hasn’t failed me before. I need you however to keep this here, in the comment section. We will all see if this information is correct once the first trailer is released. I just hope that source was right…Edit: What happened to that Call of Duty EVO leak, anyway? That one sounded cool…”
    Holly cow, this might be my longest comment ever…

    • Guywithbrains

      I say this is fake. Too early for some random dude commenting on Youtube to know anything about Ghosts 2. Also there can’t be exoskeletons or any future-like weapons because Ghosts’ universe is set in post-apocalyptic world so technology is limited.

      My guess is that story continues straight from the ending of Ghosts 1 or max 1-2 years later.

      And remember we got EVO leak and some dude saying Black Ops 3 has 25 killstreak that makes player invicible super soldier for some period of time. See how those leaks turned out?

      Someone on Youtube is yet again desperate for views. I would wait for Shinobi to give us some information.

      ^ My thoughts… I have waited for Ghosts 2 since 2013.

      • CrazyWolf

        Yeah, but like you said, Ghosts 2 might follow up the first one imediately, “or max 1-2 years later”. That’s exactly what this guy’s saying. Also, remember that Ghosts 1 had a couple futuristic weapons and attachments like the Ripper smg, the Maverick AR and the tracker sight. Plus, in the Ghosts universe, the Federation is supposedly the most advanced force on the planet. Their gear already had a futuristic look. And if the first game takes place in 2027, then it might make sense for the second game’s plot to take place towards the end of the decade. However, the thing regarding the exo is pretty interesting. InfinityWard could include the exo as a selectable piece of equipment, like a perk or something similar. I dunno…Still, so far this is the only “leak” that kinda makes sense. I mean, BiblicalReaper made a video on some other “leaked” CoD 2016 intel and it was even more random and bullshit filled. I kinda hope this one’s correct…
