It seems a long time ago since Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II was released. In fact, it was 2009.

And whilst we await the next in the series to be released, Call Of Duty: World War II, we may be tempted to trek down memory lane and play some of the older classics.

Look at how quickly Crash Bandicoot: The N-Sane Trilogy sold out when it was re-released for PlayStation 4 users recently - it became the best-selling exclusive launch of the year, beating Horizon Zero Dawn from earlier in the year.

Since 2015, some older games, from the Xbox 360 days, have been available to Xbox One users via backward compatibility.

It allows Xbox Preview program users, with a beta update to the Xbox One system software, to play classic games throughout.

Currently there are six games on the Call Of Duty listings that are available this way: Black Ops, Black Ops II, Ghosts, World At War, Call Of Duty II, and Call of Duty II.

Well, now we can add a seventh game to that list with Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II expected to join the ranks.

A new page recently went up on Xbox DVR, meaning the option to play the game on Xbox One could soon be a reality.

The first-person shooter video game followed Task Force 141, a special forces unit fronted by Captain John 'Soap' MacTavish, and the United States Army rangers, as they hunt Vladimir Makarov, leader of the Russian Ultranationalist party.

The game currently ranked as the sixth best-selling game of the Call Of Duty series, with almost 25 million copies sold worldwide.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare III currently tops that list with over 30.5 million copies sold across the world.


We are currently less than three months away from Call Of Duty: WWII being released.

The game will be centred around a squad in the First Infantry Division, and follows their battles on the Western Front.

There will be additional multiplayer options, allowing the player to go onto different fronts not seen in the main campaign. Zombie mode also returns.

Footage released of co-operative mode certainly looks pretty epic.

The current release date is listed as November 3, 2017.
