According to an update posted on on Feb. 26, gamers who use the “Call of Duty Elite” service should prepare for the feature to shutdown at the end of February.

Activision has announced that the “Call of Duty Elite” feature that was launched in 2011 along with “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3” will go offline at 10a.m PST on Feb. 28. The “Call of Duty Elite” online service allowed gamers to sign into their “Call of Duty” profiles to see real-time gaming specs, change weapon loadouts, manage their live video feeds, and more.

While the “Elite” online service is shutting down, gamers do have similar option available for “Call of Duty: Ghosts,” which is the newest title available for the iconic series. Activision released the new, free “Call of Duty” app for IOS and Android alongside “Call of Duty: Ghosts,” which offers many of the same great features that were offered by the “Elite” service along with many others.
