Activision has this week confirmed that it will be shutting down the Call of Duty Elite service for gamers on Friday, February 28th 2014.
The Call of Duty Elite service was introduced for gamers to be able to track their statistics within the Activision games of Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 but has now been out grown by subsequent services.
Over the last couple of months Activision has been in the process of phasing out the service, to be replaced by the newer Clan Wars system for Call of Duty: Ghosts. In a Call of Duty Elite Shutdown FAQ Activision has confirmed that the Call of Duty Elite service will not be returning and that it was originally designed to work with games before Call of Duty: Ghosts
Activision explains : “We’ve taken all the key learnings and fan feedback to create the Call of Duty app for Call of Duty: Ghosts, which takes some of the best and most popular features of Call of Duty Elite and introduces new elements such as Call of Duty Clan Wars. Download the Call of Duty app now, and join in the Call of Duty Clan Wars fun today.
The Call of Duty Elite service will no longer be accessible via the console or mobile app by 10:00 a.m. (PST) on Friday, February 28, 2014. However, fans who download the Call of Duty app for Call of Duty Ghosts will be able to continue enjoying features like customizing their multiplayer character and weapons loadouts on the go, keeping track of their multiplayer stats, and Call of Duty Clan Wars.”
