Call of Duty Elite mobile app delayed

Activision doesn't want to overload stressed servers.

The launch of the Call of Duty Elite mobile app has been pushed back until the new stat-tracking service is stable, Activision has announced.

The app was meant to launch late last week, but that didn't happen. A new FAQ on Activision's customer service site offered the following explanation:

"Since we do not want to add even more stress to the back-end servers, we are holding back on launching the Elite mobile applications until the service is stable and our players can easily access it.

"We will have the apps ready to launch as soon as we are comfortable the experience will be a great one, and will update with more information soon."

Elite has got off to a rocky start, with many users complaining that they've found it impossible to log on to the site. Last week, Acti blamed the problem on exceptional demand for the service and announced all premium subscribers will receive 30 days free usage as compensation.
