Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 joins Xbox backward compatibility
No more questions.
Larry Hryb, Xbox Live's Director of Programming, should be heaving a sigh of relief right now. Over the past few years — ever since Xbox One backward compatibility was announced — gamers have been asking him when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 would be backward compatible.
Luckily, the day has arrived because Hryb just confirmed its availability through the program. Modern Warfare 2 is one of the best Call of Duty games ever made and even to this day its story holds up.

The story of Modern Warfare 2 picks up where the events of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare left off. The ultranationalist Russian leader Zakhaev has been eliminated, but it seems that his lieutenant, Vladimir Makarov, is an even bigger threat.
Be sure to grab it on Amazon or the Microsoft Store soon. Usually physical copies shoot up in price if there's a lot of demand.

will this be remastered like the first one?
It's unclear right now. No announcements have been made.
Does multi player work still?
Yes. It still works but there are a lot of cheaters it seems.
I was really excited until I read your comment. I still have the physical copy of the game from my 360. I think it's still worth checking out anyway.
Played it last night. It's laggy but no cheaters so far.
