In other Backward Compatible games news, Bill Stillwell from Microsoft posted a detailed message earlier. Stillwell’s message deeply discusses the technical and operational considerations for the games in the BC list. Players around the globe have been asking for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 to be made a part of the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list. But, it hasn’t yet happened and there is no official news or leaks about the game.
According to Stillwell
“I can’t underestimate the complexity of the non-technical part of this. We are in some cases reviewing licensing agreements that are a decade old, evaluating the impact of new technology on those agreements, and then negotiating with a host of other parties for terms to get renewed/changed.
This is not a quick process most times.”
Have a look at Bill Stillwell’s tweet about the matter.
No BC releases today, but the week isn't over. More importantly though, a message that might help explain the state of things today. pic.twitter.com/9ML0VPDqJx
