According to Activision, the planned mobile app for the Call of Duty Elite service is being delayed.
The publisher addressed the question in a recent Elite FAQ and noted that:
“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.”
As most gamers have already noticed since the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (and ELITE), the service has been overwhelmed with users and has suffered some technical issues, with many gamers having trouble logging in.
As it relates to logging in, Activision says:
“Due to overwhelming response, our servers are overburdened. We’ve fixed the registration process, but logging into the web service or the new ELITE console application remains an issue. We have added more servers and are building a queuing process to allow more users into the service.
If you experience a delay, please be patient. Don’t refresh. We are queuing users, so don’t refresh. If you do, you could risk your place in line and be required to wait longer.”
