Activision has announced that all Call of Duty: Elite subscribers will have 30 days credited to their account in order to compensate for the service’s unstable launch.
“We are having trouble scaling the service to meet demand,” writes Activision. “Many of you are trying to get in and unfortunately, you can’t right now. You’re frustrated, we know it, and we know we need to fix it. Our teams have been working non-stop to identify issues and resolve them as quickly as possible. Again, these issues have no impact on the performance of the game.”
“To ensure that every premium member receives their full money’s worth, we are immediately and automatically extending your membership to Call of Duty Elite by 30 days at no additional cost. If you’re still considering becoming a premium member, we’re going to extend Founder eligibility until the end of the month, and you will also receive the additional 30 days of access.”
The publisher also notes that there are more people playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 than there were people playing Black Ops this time last year.
