Just prior to the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
, Call of Duty: Elite development studio, Beachhead Studios' Chacko Sonny, told gamers the PC version of new service would not make a day-one release alongside the game, citing the need to "ensure a safe PC environment" as one of the driving factors in the delay but that they are "as committed as ever to the PC" and were "working [their] butts off" to make it happen.
However, a recent tweet
from the official Elite Twitter feed might sell that goal short now, leaving many wondering if the service will ever reach the desktop platform.
"We are working towards a universal Elite experience but we cannot guarantee if or when a version will be available for the PC."
This is yet another let-down for MW3 on the PC platform against Battlefield 3, whose Battlelog system is well and truly up and running, though we'd argue that Elite has a lot more depth, even on the free-access level, so it's a shame this might not ever be implemented.
Is anyone playing Modern Warfare 3 on PC at the moment? How has your multiplayer experience been since launch?
is reporting that Activision have come to the rescue and claim the above tweet was erroneous, explaining that "The goal has always been to provide a PC offering for Elite. The timing for that free offering is still being determined, so stay tuned for news on that."
