Rumors about Call of Duty: Elite have been creeping onto the internet since 2009, but Activision has been notoriously vague about the service. Some players thought Elite was simply a social networking plug-in for the existing Call of Duty network. Some thought that it would be a type of content delivery system for players to download map packs and in-game content. Well, Eric Hirshberg, CEO of publishing at Activision, took the stage at Call of Duty XP to clear up all of this confusion. And it turns out that almost all of the community speculation was right.
