Considering that there are more Call of Duty games than we can even count, it comes as no surprise that the popular video game series is phasing out the outdated Call of Duty Elite stats system.

"There are no plans to bring Call of Duty Elite back," Activision said. "We encourage fans to download the Call of Duty app for Call of Duty: Ghosts, which allows players to customise their multiplayer character and weapons loadouts on the go, keep track of their Call of Duty: Ghosts stats, and features Call of Duty Clan Wars, where players can compete for cool, exclusive in-game gear."

Many people who had heard that Call of Duty Elite would likely be getting shut down after more than two years of operation already anticipated this. Nonetheless, Activision also helped direct gamers who might not be sure where all the content will go.

"Any content stored in-game or uploaded to YouTube will still be available. For Call of Duty®: Black Ops II, if you've previously linked your YouTube account to your Call of Duty® account, any videos that you upload from the game to YouTube will go to your personal YouTube channel. If you haven't linked your Call of Duty® account to your personal YouTube account, then any videos you upload will go to and"

Call of Duty: Ghosts is the current game and it has gone head-to-head with Battlefield 4 as two of the top first person action games. Both have fared well since being released and the debate over which game is better depends on personal preference. Many people even enjoy both of the games.
