I would think they are going to follow the same system. It seems silly for them to have put so much work into the Elite system to abandon it. I bet the same deal will happen if you buy the Hardened edition. You will get a year of Elite and the DLC. Unless they decide to completely do away with Elite, but I don't see that happening.
This is good question because since elite didnt work and still doest work properly activision did give out as a gift "2 more free months" of the elite season content for the members that bought elite early on. Now since the season content ends in September that would means we still have 2 months free for the next season or so i would think. Considering that the new season wouldnt start until treyarch decides to start releasing DLC which is usually 1 month after the game release
Well Sony does have a subscription service its playstation plus it's a pretty good deal if you like buying games from the psn store but you cant blame sony for not wanting to suck activision D*** and besides i personaly don't mind waiting it's not like the maps that come with the game are terrible
The thing is that we don't know; they haven't told us anything in regards to it, but I doubt ATVI will make the mistake of screwing us over again in regards to being premium.
My best GUESS is that if you buy ELITE today, you will get it until July 24th next year, and, if DLC is included in Black Ops 2, will receive all DLC up until that point, but nothing after that.
Check this out guys! Exact answer to all the questions and doubts directly from the COD Forum:
OMG people. ELITE and ELITE 2.0 are the same thing!!!!!!!!!! If any one has played Tiny Wings, they will know that they announced a Tiny Wings 2.0. Everyone thought it was going to be a different game on the app store, when (in acctuality) it was an update. Thats whats going to happen with ELITE. Your subscription will carry over to BOII, however if 3arc go the same route as MW3 (which means DLC will start in Jan.) you will most likely have to pay for ELITE again anyway (depending on when you got ELITE).
Actually, when you bought a year of Elite for MW3 you bought a year of content aka a Season Pass. You'll have to buy another one when BO2 comes out which will give you a year of content. It doesn't matter when you bought Elite, if you don't buy the Elite 2.0 Subscription, you won't get the content at all until you purchase it.
I have an ELITE supscription here, i have 2 of them and iv already redeemed 1. If i renew my ELITE when black ops 2 is released will it work for black ops 2 aswell? i hope it does cos i bought 2 to last me longer but did'nt think they may only work for mw3. if they only work for mw3 then they are being greedy and unfair, they should of said WAY earlier if they would only work for mw3.
This is what I have heard from a very good source. Cod elite 2.0 will not have any early dlc, just the other features. Maybe thats why there is no info on it, that maybe true as people have been scammed enough. I mean we get the last 3 mp maps 1 day before the normal users can buy it. I will not be renewing thats for sure something to think of there?
That info is incorrect Sir read this it will explain it all.http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/03/12/activision-explains-call-of-duty-elite-20
