Welcome to the latest edition of This Week in Xbox One News.

The first Call of Duty: Black Ops could hit backwards compatibility very soon

Classic Call of Duty titles are among the highest requested backwards compatible games on the Xbox UserVoice page, and somewhat surprisingly, Activision got on board. We’ve known for some time that the original Call of Duty Black Ops was on its way to backwards compatibility, but a new report suggests we could be getting it sooner rather than later.

SoloXboxOne revealed that one of Call of Duty Black Ops’ map packs – titled Annihilation – has become available in the Spanish Xbox One marketplace. Annihilation wasn’t the first DLC available for Black Ops, which probably indicates that other map packs you purchased on your Xbox 360 will become available as well.

Microsoft recently said that they’ll begin adding backwards compatible titles as soon as they become available, rather than gathering them up into monthly batches. Video game backlog problems for all!

Stay tuned to Windows Central for the official announcement.
