Bethesda fixes issue where Doom Xbox 360 owners couldn't redownload game

Removed from sale following new version's launch.

Following the release of Doom, Doom 2 and Doom 3 on Xbox One after Quakecon this weekend, the old Xbox 360 games were not only delisted from the marketplace, but made inaccessible to download by those who already owned them.

Bethesda has now fixed the latter problem, however, and confirmed in a tweet that if you own the Xbox 360 releases you can redownload them on Xbox One.

The games are still not purchasable if you did not own them already.

This isn't the only issue Bethesda has had to handle with the new releases of the game, it's currently working on a fix causing users to need to log into a Bethesda account just to play Doom.

The original Doom and Doom 2 are out now for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC - and even Doom 64 could be making a resurgence too. Here's hoping Bethesda will actually be able to iron out all of the bugs in that one.
