Activision plans to Shut Down Call of Duty: Elite

Call of Duty: Elite was a place where players were able to check on their stats, socially interact with others, and create clans to do clan based objectives. It was a feature that was created for Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2.

Activision was able to rack up over ten million registered users altogether, and 2 million of which were paid subscribers. The Elite service is set to end on Friday, February 28th at 10 am PT.

Elite was first launched back in 2011 for Modern Warfare 3, based on a yearly subscription fee for $50. When Black Ops 2 came out in 2012, they made the service free for all users. Then Call of Duty: Ghosts came out last November, where they created a new app which has all the same features as the elite does, and then some more.

They are urging players to download the Ghosts app, because it will be useful for the next Call of Duty that is currently being developed by Sledgehammer Games.


To appreciate those who have used the elite service, Activision is rewarding Double XP for two hours of Ghosts, to the members who have logged into Elite since January 1st, 2014.
