Call of Duty Elite the advanced user stats tracker set to launch alongside next week’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 release has been delayed for those gamers looking to make use of the service from a PC, developer Beachhead has revealed.
Pushing back the arrival of the PC launch of Call of Duty Elite in order to create “a safe environment” for gamers, Beachhead has confirmed the subscription based COD service will not launch alongside the PC version of Modern Warfare 3 but have failed to offer further insight in to the system’s expected arrival.
"Elite on PC will not launch on Day 1,"Chacko Sonny Beachhead studio head said in a recent interview. "We're working our butts off to make it happen, but we won't release it until we know that PC gamers can enjoy Elite as it's meant to be.”
He added: "The issue here is that the PC is an insecure platform. Without a central, trusted resource for stats, a lot of our competition features become unfair. We can't give away prizes when people can easily cheat their stats. Leaderboards are less fun when a lot of the users are there unfairly.
“We're working on it, but it is not going to come out until we've done a lot more work I don't want to ship something to this community that doesn't have the polish that they deserve.”
