Recently, Microsoft just added three more Xbox 360 classics to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library. "Tekken 6," "Midway Arcade Origins" and "Mutant Storm Empire" are now available to Xbox One gamers.

Larry Hyrb, also known by his Xbox Live Gamertag as "Major Nelson," made the announcement via Twitter. The announcement spontaneously triggered a wave of gossip on when "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" was added to the backwards compatibility library.

Even though "Tekken 6" is one of the most popular classics of the Xbox 360, it is not one of the most requested games to be added to the backwards compatibility library, according to the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility voting site.

The latest polls show, the most highly commendable game for backwards compatibility is "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" which garnered over 200k votes so far, with "Tekken 6" only having 6k votes its inclusion, as cited on Express.

A lot of gamers have been anticipating COD's big debut on the Xbox One's backwards compatibility program. They have put pressure on Microsoft's Xbox Team Head, Phil Spencer, in which he is very eager to respond regarding this issue.

Spencer told the fans more about the eventual arrival of Black Ops 2 saying that he also wants Black Ops 2 to be released on backwards compatibility and that fans should not take his lack of response on BO2's reprieved release as a lack of caring. He also told that the COD's inclusion in the backwards compatibility program is entirely up to Activision and not Microsoft, Daily Star reported.

As of now, fans and gamers alike can only hope that COD's release on backwards compatibility would be settled by Activision sooner. Under Spencer's team, the Xbox One's Backwards Compatibility library is gradually expanding. With over 13 Xbox 360 games have been added to the library in January alone.
