Activision is set to pull the plug on Beachhead Studio's Call of Duty Elite on February 28. The stat-tracking service launched prior to the release of Modern Warfare 3, but Ghosts' dedicated stats app edged it out.
With 2 million paying subscribers, you would think that Acitvision would want to keep Call of Duty Elite a premium service. With the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, it will become totally free. Why? Activision can make more money per player that way.
In response to the disappointing launch of the Call of Duty: Elite service, developer Beachhead Studios and Activision have come clean on the reasons, and are offering an apology to premium subscribers.
As part of the Call of Duty: Elite premium service, each Friday members will have access to a new video episode of Friday Night Fights, pitting two rival groups against each other via Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
