Activision confirms CoD Elite 2.0 is just an update

/ 7 years ago

Activision has clarified exactly what it was talking about when it mentioned “Call of Duty Elite 2.0” in an investor call last month.

As explained in a post on the publisher’s One of Swords blog, community man Dam Amrich stated that “2.0” does not mean a whole new product that you’ll have to buy a second subscription for. It’s just shorthand for “new features are on the way”.

“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,” he wrote.

“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”

“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.'”
