With the third title in the Modern Warfare series of Call of Duty very close to release, comes news that the online social networking service, Call of Duty Elite, has been delayed for none other then the PC platform.
"Beachhead Studio head Chacko Sonny has told Activision community man Dan Amrich that not only will be service not be launching on day one, but that there’s no idea yet when it will launch on PC.
“We’re as committed as ever to the PC,” he says, “but the need to ensure a safe PC environment is greater than ever. It’s really extensive. We need more time to get there, so Elite on PC will not launch on Day 1. 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.”
“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.”
So, it seems we don't know when we will actually get Call of Duty Elite on PC, and this comes after news that PC dedicated servers aren't actually ranked, and that in order to rank up, you have to actually use the IWNet P2P (Peer 2 Peer) system instead.
