Call of Duty Elite still planned for PC after all

Call of Duty Elite may have run into some post-launch problems last week due to massive player demand; but at least the stats and community service for players of Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 first person shooter is now available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game. Earlier today PC fans were in an uproar that a delayed but still promised PC version of Call of Duty Elite might not happen after all.

According to a post earlier today on the official Call of Duty Elite Twitter page, "We are working towards a universal Elite experience but we cannot guarantee if or when a version will be available for the PC." However, a few hours later the same Twitter page posted an update, saying, "We misspoke. Our goal has always been to provide a free PC offering for ELITE. Stay tuned for an update as timing is still being determined."

A few weeks ago, Activision confirmed that the PC port of Call of Duty Elite would not launch at the same time as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions Activision claimed at the time that the delay was due to the PC platform itself, saying, "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."
