Activision social media manager Dan Amrich has posted a new note on his blog, explaining exactly what the recently announced, Call of Duty: Elite 2, will mean for fans.
Posting on his blog, Amrich explained that the new service will bring newer and richer features for those who are members to the current service.
“This shareholder tease led some people to assume that they would have to buy two subscriptions to Elite — the one you have now and a new one for the forthcoming game. Nope,” Amrich writes. “This is more about upgrading and revising the service that currently exists. They always promised Elite would evolve, but now they clearly have some specific upgrades in mind timed to the next game.
“It helps to remember that Elite is a service, not a boxed product,” adds Amrich. “Consider Xbox Live. You need an annual subscription to get what it offers, but when Microsoft added more video programming and updated the dashboard interface and made it more Kinect-friendly, as they did late last year, you didn’t need a second XBL subscription to see those changes. Same thing here. ‘Elite 2.0′ is just a short, software way of saying ‘significant improvements are in the works.’ Hope that makes it clear for anybody who was still fuzzy.”
There has been no specific date mentioned for the new Call of Duty: Elite service, however we’d expect it to arrive alongside the inevitable November release for the latest game in the series.
