Activision To Shut Down Call of Duty Elite Today

Activision To Shut Down Call of Duty Elite Today(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – After today, Call of Duty Elite will be no more as Activision will be shutting down the social networking service, reports GameSpot.

CoD Elite, first established in 2011 alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, gives players the opportunity to meet and connect with other CoD gamers as well as performing analysis on how they did in multiplayer matches, skill tracking, and clan management.

“There are no plans to bring Call of Duty Elite back,” said the company. “We encourage fans to download the Call of Duty app for Call of Duty: Ghosts, which allows players to customize their multiplayer character and weapons loadouts on the go, keep track of their Call of Duty: Ghosts stats, and features Call of Duty Clan Wars, where players can compete for cool, exclusive in-game gear.”

Content that has been stored in the game or uploaded to YouTube through CoD Elite will still be accessible, however medals earned from Clan Ops and Challenges will not.

Activision will be giving away two hours of double XP for Call of Duty: Ghosts players who have accessed the service since January 1, 2014, though a specific date has not been announced yet.
