Activision has confirmed that it is shuttering its Call of Duty: Elite service this Friday, February 28.
Originally launched alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in 2011, Elite is a stat tracking service that arrived in free and premium variations. For a subscription price, gamers would receive monthly DLC, competitions, pro strategies and TV content.
By March 2012, 10 million players had signed up to the service, of which two million were premium members.
Elite would later function with Call of Duty: Black Ops II, though was replaced with the Call of Duty app for last year’s Call of Duty: Ghosts.
"There are no plans to bring Call of Duty Elite back," Activision said in an FAQ. "We encourage fans to download the Call of Duty app for Call of Duty: Ghosts, which allows players to customise their multiplayer character and weapons loadouts on the go, keep track of their Call of Duty: Ghosts stats, and features Call of Duty Clan Wars, where players can compete for cool, exclusive in-game gear."
