Microsoft announced last month that Call of Duty: Black Ops 1 was set to be backwards compatible in December on Xbox One. Today, they have announced the list of titles that will be available this month, and Black Ops 1 is not listed.

According to Xbox One’s website, Call of Duty: Black Ops 1 is now listed under “Even more favorite titles coming each month” without any firm release month or time period.

    Ultimate Plot Twist! Sound the alarms!

  • XtremeK1ll3r

    Fuck you Uncle Phil.

  • They never said Black ops was comming this month…. They announced that Black Ops (together with Skate and Bioshock) is coming iin the future. And that they’re releaseing ew games each month. They never said it would come in december, therefore it’s not “delayed”

    • Alan Di Geronimo

      You’re right, they said “You can expect new Xbox One backwards compatible games to be announced on a regular basis, starting in December”. I’m hoping it’s available soon, I never got to fully experience the game because of all the hackers and moders.

      • Sku11

        The hacker will still be there because the way it works is your Xbox one basicly turns in to a 360 so you will be playing with people on the 360 so hackers will stay

        • Nigsalonia


    • Wyatt

      They did along with halo wars and I don’t know why there not keeping there word unless there going to release them later this month

      • Dude…. First off this is not from Microsoft, this is IGN. Second off, even there it doesn’t state that bo is coming in december. It says new games will be added in december and bo1 is confirmed to arrive in the future

    • Mike

      Actually no. It was under upcoming releases with the title December over it.

  • Brian

    Keshav they have never announced that black ops 1 was going to be added on December.

    “You can expect new Xbox One Backward Compatible games to be announced on a regular basis, starting in December. More titles are on the way, including fan favorites like Halo Reach, Halo Wars, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Bioshock, Bioshock 2, Bioshock Infinite and Skate 3. Stay tuned because this just the beginning of a long list of Xbox 360 games that will run on Xbox One.” Source:

    That doesn’t sound like BO1 was coming in december

    Who is gonna wonna play BO1 when BO3 is still so new?

    • CoDforever

      Exactly. I remember in the middle of ghosts I decided to play bo1 again and I got bored after 3 games.

    • José #TeamDPP

      Whaatttt ? BO1 is the best cod , I’ll definitely play it when it come to BC games.


        And well MW2 is by far the best COD

        • TheDemonOfHate

          Your opinion child

          • KMARSHALL

            I’m 21…name a campaign better than MW2…none, and hacked lobby or not if you’re good enough you can still beat anyone no matter what mod, or aim bot they have but you probably suck which is why you’re complaining

          • TheDemonOfHate

            Honestly IN MY OPINION (that’s the whole point of my previous comment) Ghosts had a great campaign. I don’t want to sound cocky but I was a great player during MW2 era. Honestly I don’t see how i’m complaining i was just stating it was your opinion since it’s not a fact. So go on somewhere kiddo.

          • KMARSHALL

            Ghost did have a great campaign but nothing like the heartbreak and deception that i personally actually felt when ghost and roach got killed in mw2 and thats my fault i was mixing 2 other commenters comments into the one. the one about complaining was for the other guys, and i got banned for weeks at a time for “cheating” when i, hand to god, never have my trigger finger was like a ump, my aim was headshots everytime i loved mw2 great plot great weapons, even greater maps amazing piece of work

          • TheDemonOfHate

            It’s ok, You’ll get use to using disqus, new cumer.

          • AlphaDog

            So KMARSHALL loved MW2 for the sake of cheating like an immature little talentless cunt rag.

          • olO Kush Olo

            Cod world at war blows mw2 campaign out of the fucking water, as well as black ops one.

          • Joshua Narsu

            Well the MW1 campaign was pretty awesome

        • ben wills

          ya if you dont like skill

        • Duke of hazard

          I’m probably the only person who thinks MW2 is the most overrated Cod.

          • Deeznutsacrossyourchin

            And it a dumb whore also

        • Cameron Cridge

          Multiplayer wise yes but bo1 had zombies so it’s def the better package. I’d say most people that will go back to bo1 will do so for zombies.

          • Steggs

            Fuck yeah!!! I haven’t played moon in forever!!!

      • Drank Bleach

        Better hope you get into a hacked free lobby.

      • TheDemonOfHate

        Your opinion boy

      • Tyler deaf

        Bo3 s good but not much map at this moment until march for xboxone.


      Because screw BO3 thats why

    • The Flash

      BO1 is far better than BO3 right now and is far more playable and is well my favourite COD

    • zack

      id rather play bo1 tbh. Literally the only thing i like about bo3 is the sparrow. And they had to copy that off gears of war.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Everyone who enjoys a classic and great Call of Duty game. Black Ops is a true Call of Duty that will get all of my attention when it becomes Backward Compatible.

    • Steggs

      Ummm zombies!?!? Did you never play moon?

      • Deadpool

        Yeah i hated it. Worst zombies map ever.

  • CoDforever

    This is actually good news for us PS and xbox/pc fans because they might be planning to do a remaster instead

    • Just no

      They are releasing it just not this month

      • CoDforever

        I said they “might” and you know activision are the type of people to cancel it after seeing the interest to play bo1 again

        • jordanxbrookes

          I wish. I’d be happy to pay Activision money for a current-gen looking Black Ops with Dedicated Servers and game fixes.

  • ItzSikh

    out of CoD context but did anyone of you guys cared about your GCSE mock results.

    • FazalGaming

      F*ck the mocks, im doing the real things at the end of this year

      • ItzSikh

        good luck man

        • FazalGaming


      • ItzSikh

        when you said year did you mean by school year or the year in general

        • FazalGaming

          end of academic

    • jordanxbrookes

      I remember when I did my mocks. Barely studied and instead played a shit ton of Modern Warfare 3. Surprisingly I still did very well, guess I knew it all already. Tbh you should care about mocks since it gives you an idea on what the exams are going to be like and also what you need to study in order to gain higher marks.

      • ItzSikh

        I revised so much tho but when i got the results i got shitty grades mostly D’s.

  • ItzSikh

    out of CoD context but did anyone of you guys bother about your GCSE mock results.

  • Kyle G

    Meh, I would rather see Black Ops 2 become backwards compatible anyways. Black Ops 1 wasn’t that bad of a game but I never really got excited when I heard it was on the list of backwards compatible games. It was fun while it was out, but not fun enough to where i’d buy it again.

    Black Ops 2 on the other hand……

    • The Flash

      BO1 > BO2

      • Kyle G


        • The Flash

          BO1 had better MP and Zombies, but BO2 had a better campaign imo

          • Jason_88

            I like black iOS one completely better all around mp zombies and that’s actually the last campaign I played for duty

          • Kyle G


          • ben wills

            LOL bo2 had worst campaign theres ever been story wise

          • The Flash

            I enjoyed playing the BO2 one more than the BO1 one, i also thought the BO2 one was more memorable.

      • Tuby

        No way bo 1 was good but I loved bo 2 more. League play was fun and a good choice.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Agreed. Everything about Black Ops was much better than Black Ops 2, although I still liked Black Ops 2.

        • The Flash

          yeah thats how i feel, BO2 has its ups, but BO1 is much better imo, its my favourite COD though and seeing as it was my first i may be slightly biased towards it because of nostalgia. For the MW series, MW3 is my favourite, fell in love with Infected.

          • jordanxbrookes

            MW2 was technically my first, but Black Ops was when I first started playing Multiplayer. It was just so well made.

          • The Flash

            My bro attempted to get me into MW2 but i just didnt know what i was doing, all i enjoyed was running around Terminal in private match on my own, i couldnt do anything online as i sucked, but i got really into BO1 due to combat training where i always did good, then i got hooked on Zombies, then eventually took to online MP and did really well on that too, because my best experience was always on BO1, it always holds up for me more than other CODs

        • Smayo

          same here, liked both games but bo2 had to grow on me, while bo1 got me instantly hooked, little dissapointed that bo1 isn’t in the BC list this month, i’m not really liking bo3, the jumping and sliding isn’t for me i guess

    • ben wills


  • Drank Bleach

    I figured bo1 would not be supported, Activision has the say so in this, and doesn’t make sense if bo3 out.

    • ScOott

      Black ops one is going to be supported, keshav got mixed up, was never rolling out today.

      • Drank Bleach

        Should have worded it better, that I knew the game would not be supported right now.

        • ScOott

          Aghh me gets you!

  • The Flash

    god damn it, was looking forward to playing it this month

  • FoxyTheDankPirate

    ugh gotta w8 n0w

  • Kyle Soule


  • Myth

    UGH, just when I thought I could uninstall Shit Ops 3 for good.

  • GinsuVictim

    I don’t know how many people I had to correct when the announcement was made, but I can’t believe you, Keshav, didn’t understand it either. “Starting in December” did not mean available in December.

  • ToonToons22

    Disappointing. Black Ops 1 would have been an awesome game to play with an Xbox One controller. I really was looking forward to it and I waited a month after they made the announcement for them to release it on XB1. I’ll be moving next week and I won’t be able to play again until at least late January. I thought that since it was such a popular game that it would be one of the first to be released for BC. I guess not.

  • Fag


  • Jason

    I really was hoping to play bo1 i cant stand bo3 zombies/multiplayer i prefer the classic multiplayer/zombies with no stupid thrusters or exo watever its called well im stuck playing ghosts till it comes out i just hope MW2 come out then call of duty will finally have life again IMO

    • Cameron Cridge

      The only thing bo3 zombies has that has changed from the original is in shadows of evil you can wall run on 1 wall. Plus the ability to multi pack weapons but that hasn’t changed the feel of zombies. Exo zombies was an abomination and an insult to zombie slayers world wide.

  • eurorootz

    I’m sure the game is ready but I’m not holding my breath. I highly doubt Activision wants this game to be backwards compatible. It was one of the highest grossing in the series. They can instead “remaster” their games and fetch more money. To them backwards compatibility is losing money even if you bought it and own it on the 360. This was my favorite call of duty all time and I’m certain Microsoft won’t be the one to hold it back. They want and need games like it to entice XB1 sales.

  • Tyler deaf

    I want black ops 1 on xboxone already so I can enjoy playing killing time until black ops 3 first DLC arrive in march. Yes sad. Suck for xbox fans. Because ps4 release it on feb 2nd oh well. I’m not complaining. But release bo1 already please!!!!! I understand to get it. With disc. Or. Download if already purchase from xbox360. I totally understand. Release it!

  • JD

    Where is black ops MS?

  • cooper larue

    I just want to play some damn halo wars!!!

  • JT

    Well it’s here and it is the most lagged game in my collection…..far surpassing Gotham City Imposters. The hackers are as evident as ever with the invisibility mess, the stand in one place, turn 360, and shoot everyone continuously, god mode, etc. Of course as long as Xbox Live and the COD franchise gets your money they could care less. I was really excited about this one coming to the back-comp arena but as usual in multiplayer gaming someone not only dropped the ball but turned around and shoved it up the gaming consumers ass. At 59.99 plus the DLC(s) it’s nice to know that the programmers, designers, engineers, etc. got another slice of money and as usual can care less about their product. Thanks a lot for the disappointment ass-hats.
