Activision still planning Call of Duty Elite on PC

Activision's official Call of Duty Elite Twitter account seemed as if it might shutter plans for COD Elite on PC, but the company has clarified that it misspoke.

Call of Duty Elite has been suffering an embarrassment of riches, as console users flocking to the premium service has made it difficult for many to get in. The PC version hasn't released yet, and despite a statement to the contrary earlier today, the company claims it's is still coming.

Speculation was kicked off by an official tweet that said they "cannot guarantee if or when a version will be available for the PC." The "if" raised a few eyebrows.

Shacknews contacted Activision to clarify the statement, and the company says they misspoke. "The goal has always been to provide a PC offering for Elite," a representative told Shacknews. "The timing for that free offering is still being determined, so stay tuned for news on that."

PC didn't get a beta of the service, but it was said to be coming to the platform alongside the MW3 release. Given the continued problems that plague the service, it's clear that Activision has to improve the service before expanding it to yet another platform.

      Why do they even release CoD or anything related to Cod on PC? EVERY game they release, PC has the most problems or gets DLC/patches months after the consoles.

        Money. Even if the game doesn't sell that much compared to the consoles say quarter million. Well that is a still a quarter million sales more then some games sell across all platforms.

        Also do they really get patches that late? I haven't played COD on pc since MW2 but they fixed the javelin glitch much earlier on pc thanks to not having to go through cert.

        Because not everyone wants to play with the window lickers on Live or PSN. Also, if it weren't for the success of CoD on PC back in 2003, you probably wouldn't have a console version to play today.

      "Well, we only sell three million copies of Call of Duty on the PC, whereas we sell ten million on the Xbox... so the PC doesn't matter."

      Not as arrogant IWNet for Modern Warfare 2, but still pretty arrogant.
