Activision Still Working on PC Call of Duty: Elite, Wants to "Do Right by PC Players"
By Nathan Grayson | Mar 15, 2012
Rumored to have a new stat that tracks PC gamers' withering patience.
Four months and one cancellation-related slip of the tongue
after Call of Duty: Elite's PC delay, there still doesn't appear to be an end in sight. So then, what gives? Is CoD: Elite DoA? Not in the slightest, says Activision
. Just, you know, continue having patience with the shooter series that's about blasting folks into cutting edge confetti right this very second
Producer Noah Heller explained to Eurogamer
"Unfortunately I don't have an update for you at this time. We're still working on it. We can't date it yet. It's a challenging piece of development. It's really all I can say. Back in the day I was a PC gamer myself. I cut my teeth on shooters on good, old fashioned Team Fortress 1. So I'm excited to do right by the PC players soon."
"I get several emails a day. It's a vocal, passionate audience. What we need to ensure is that when we ship something for them, it's quality. We cannot make them wait this long and then deliver something that isn't quality."
Originally, Activision pegged Elite's delay on PC's status as "an insecure platform" that lacks "a central, trusted resource for stats." Which is a bit unfair, I think. The PC's been going to counseling lately, and it's made huge strides in its self-confiden-- oh, you mean the other
kind of insecure. Yeah, that's sort of a thing.
