Elite will probably support older CODs, but later — Beachhead

Older entries in the Call of Duty series are likely to make use of Elite in some fashion, service developer Beachhead has said. While not a priority for the time being, product director Noah Heller does say it’s likely to happen later on.

“While the focus of the company is always going to be on the recent game, we want to make sure Elite is a big tent that can fit all these different communities,” Heller’s told Videogamer.

Doing so involves “going back and reverse-engineering the old games so that they work in Elite” though, but, seeing as community members have asked for this in droves, Heller believes it’s something that will be done “eventually.”

How far back and what features would be supported wasn’t discussed though.
