Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is now Backwards Compatible on the Xbox One.
The announcement came via Major Nelson of Xbox on Tuesday, August 28, with the title going live on the Xbox One on the same day.
Fans have been requesting MW2 as a Backwards Compatible title for years, and will now have the opportunity to play the game on the Xbox One.
It has been reported that a player’s statistics will remain the same in the Backwards Compatible version of MW2 as they were on the Xbox 360, meaning that if your account was banned previously, it still will be.
All MW2 DLC will also be playable in the BC version, however, a player must already have purchased it in the past.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was originally released in 2009, and gained a substantial amount of fanfare for its new take on the CoD franchise.
We will continue to provide more information on this story as it is made available.
During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.
Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.
While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.
But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.
Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.
At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.
The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.
While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.
Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.
This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.
As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.
Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
