Call of Duty Elite shutting down this week

Call of Duty Elite shutting down this week

Call of Duty Elite was a lucrative, but ultimately short-lived, experiment by Activision. The company experimented with a subscription model with Modern Warfare 3, but opted to switch back to a more traditional Season Pass model with Black Ops 2. "What we have realized is that several of the Call of Duty Elite services which are currently only available to our premium members for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are things that would further unite, engage and delight our player community. So we are going to make them free for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2," Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said at the time. With Ghosts, the company offloaded many of those services to a standalone app.

Elite services are still running for Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2--but not for much longer. The service will end this Friday.

Call of Duty Elite services extended for Modern Warfare 3 early adopters

Call of Duty Elite's launch last year was by no means smooth. In fact, Activision offered an olive branch for fans that struggled to access the for-pay services, as the servers were hammered by hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic Call of Duty fans. Elite memberships were extended by 30 days to account for the long service outage--an offer which Activision has oddly expanded.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's final DLC on video

The "season of content" for Modern Warfare 3 is about to end--just in time for the release of Black Ops 2, of course. Collection 4, aka "Final Assault," contains five new maps: Gulch, Boardwalk, Offshore, Decommission, and Parish. Call of Duty Elite subscribers on Xbox 360 will be able to download their final maps on September 5th, while regular Xbox 360 players will be able to get the content one day later, on September 6th. PS3 and PC players will have to wait, of course.

Activision has released a new trailer, showing off the game's final maps. We wonder: will Black Ops 2 players be so lucky to have 24 pieces of post-release content as well?
