No PC Call of Duty Elite beta until autumn

Once again, PC gamers will be waggling their mice in fury as they take a backseat in favour of the console market as the new Call of Duty Elite service won’t be coming to home computers until autumn. Meanwhile, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners will be able to waggle their thumbs all over this at earlier dates this year.

The news has been confirmed by Dan Amrich, Activision’s Social Media Manager. At present, Xbox 360 players have already been offered to try out the new service, still in its beta form. PlayStation 3 owners only have to wait until fall.

The Elite service already boasts at least 2.8m gamers that have signed up.

The newest title in the Call of Duty series, Modern Warfare 3, will be released November this year, so it looks like PC fans won’t have much time at all to get used to the new service.
