The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program has not slowed down as of late, with fans still being treated more and more every time. Now, it seems that majority of the games within the program taking the gold all belong to Treyarch.

For those unaware, the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program is one feat wherein Microsoft makes previously launched games for the Xbox 360 available to the Xbox One. The said approach was said to not have been easy for Microsoft to come up with, especially since there are quite a lot of games that many are looking to bring about for the Xbox One.

According to recent reports, the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility request list is apparently being taken over by Treyarch's powerhouse franchise, "Call of Duty." The top spot apparently belongs to "Call of Duty: Black Ops II." The game was said to have not budged with over 200,000 fan requests taking it to said spot. So far, there are about five "Call of Duty" games dominant among the others in the list, those being "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2," "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare," "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" and "Call of Duty: World at War."

As good as the program may sound, the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility still dons a few limitations. It was reported recently that Xbox Live Director of Programming Larry Hryb, otherwise known as Major Nelson, that other games are still bound to be approved by their respective publishers before making it to the list. In this case, it is almost apparent that Treyarch will bring about a lot more "Call of Duty" titles further on into the program-and as early as now, fans are already asking for them.

An apparent competitor to the program is BioWare's "Mass Effect 2" and "Mass Effect 3," which was added not too long back from the time of this writing. In the same manner, these two were also successful launches as per the requests of the fans. What other titles would you want on the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Program?
