Activision Blizzard Inc seems to have taken a U-turn on its “we will never, ever charge for multiplayer,” stance as expressed by CEO Eric Hirschberg, and will now be rolling out a new subscription service called Call Of Duty Elite with its new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 game when it launches on November 8th 2011.
The new Call Of Duty Elite will be a monthly subscription plan reserved for Elite members but will also include free elements and online matches will still be free.
The new monthly subscription fee will provide extra content that isn’t offered on store bought game disks and will include new content such as downloadable map packs that give players new “Call of Duty” levels to play.
Unfortunately no information on pricing has been released as yet by Activision Blizzard Inc, but as soon as it becomes available we will let you know. What are your thoughts on a new subscription service,?
