After introducing the Call of Duty app for smartphones and tablets, Activision has made the decision to ice Call of Duty: Elite. As a social network for the franchise, it began as a premium service with the launch of Modern Warfare 3 and eventually went free with Black Ops 2’s release. Elite will be going down at 10 AM PST on February 28th.
Activision isn’t forgetting those who made the service what it was though. It will be offering all soon-to-be former members two hours of double XP time, provided you’ve been an Elite member since January 1st 2014. Players can expect to see the reward arriving on profiles “soon”.
One wonders if that will be the fate of Battlefield’s Premium service, which Call of Duty attempted to ape with Elite, especially given the delays in DLC and continuing problems. What do you think about Elite shutting down? Let us know below.
