It seems as though the Call of Duty: Elite application for iPads and other tablets is not forgotten. In a recent interview with The Guardian, Noah Heller, product director at CoD Elite developer Beachhead Studios, confirmed that the app is still in the works. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 came out a few months ago, but at this point it feels like it has been forever. Along with it came a new premium service called Call of Duty: Elite. This service not only gives players first access to all the downloadable maps for the game, but it also affords them a deeper level of stat tracking. An iPhone application launched, but the app for tablets has been conspicuously missing in action. I was starting to think it was forgotten, but it appears that is not the case. "We're working on a tablet application right now," Noah Heller said. "I can't tell you that much about it, but I can tell you it's a totally, customized app for the tablet, not a simple port. The whole website is built in HTML5, so you can go to that on a tablet, and it will look fine. But to make the apps on a tablet, it was about making the most of that real-estate and that landscape." Hopefully the iPad application adds some of the features that were missing from the iPhone version. Heat maps are one of the most sought after features for Call of Duty players, and I hope to see that included in the tablet version. Would you use a Call of Duty: Elite app on your iPad?
