While Activision has already released some of its premium video shows for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Call of Duty Elite subscribers are still waiting for the meat of the service, a year's worth of downloadable content for Infinity Ward's record-breaking first-person shooter. The wait ends next month, as Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling has announced a January 24 launch date for a Modern Warfare 3 add-on.
The news came in a Twitter post from Bowling that included a picture of a map named "Park" that appears to be set around the distinctive Bethesda Fountain in New York City's Central Park. Bowling called the map "some of the first" DLC for the game and promised more info would arrive next month.
Activision has touted Modern Warfare 3 as the biggest launch in entertainment history after a single day on shelves and then again after five days. Earlier this month, the publisher reiterated the notion, saying Modern Warfare 3 reached $1 billion faster than any other entertainment property, needing just 16 days on sale.
As for Call of Duty Elite, Activision has said the subscription service for its first-person shooter series reached 1 million paid users last month. Elite provides players with gameplay statistics, video sharing, and clan support features for free. Those who shell out for the $50 annual subscription will also receive all downloadable content released in the year, as well as exclusive video content and other perks.
