The fans of Call of Duty: Black Ops II who expected the game to come this week on Xbox One through the backward compatibility program will have to keep waiting, because Phil Spencer came out to deny such rumors.
Through Twitter, the top boss of Xbox stated that it was not true that Black Ops II would join this week to the alignment of games compatible with Xbox One, and although the fans were insistent regarding the launch of said game, Spencer assured that he could not share any information related to that subject.
“I can not comment on later releases on 3P games but rumors on this right now aren’t true. Sorry. I wish I had better news for you,” Spencer wrote on his Twitter profile.
Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the most requested title in the official lists of the backward compatibility for Xbox One. The community has voted for this game more than 211,000 times, much more requested than the second place in the list: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Last month Phil Spencer had stated that he did want Black Ops II to get back into the backslash program, but that is a decision that Activision has to make.
@bo2_army I can’t comment on later releases on 3P games but rumors on this right now aren’t true. Sorry. I wish I had better news for you.
