To celebrate this announcement, Microsoft is also offering a sale on the game this week. You can avail a discount on the digital copy through the Xbox One store if you are interested in playing it again on your Xbox One.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 launched on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 back in November 2009. It received some controversy due to its ‘No Russian’ scene which saw the players go through an airport massacre. The game has still retained a lot of popularity online mainly due to the multiplayer that has still stood the test of time.
