Call of Duty Elite’s launch woes will soon be left behind, Beachhead reckons; the developer has set December 1st as the date to look forward to for the service’s full restoration.
Elite was essentially unusable when it launched some weeks ago, with exceeded expectations causing log-in troubles.
“They kind of have to bear with us while we bring this all back up, but for us it’s literally ‘Give us those couple weeks, we’re giving those to you for free and come December 1st the goal is that we’ll have everything up and running,'” vice president of production Daniel Suarez told G4 (via).
To compensate for the troubles, Activision has added an extra month to the annual subscriptions.
“When we ran our beta, [it] was strictly on the PC and a lot of our assumptions were based around [the idea] that a larger majority of users were going to use the PC [interface] since it’s a more robust version of the service than the console app.”
“Some of that may have been incorrectly analysed,” he admits,”because we’re seeing 80 to 90 per cent of our users coming straight from the console app.”
