Activision's social network and stat-tracking service for the Call of Duty enthusiast, Call of Duty Elite, may become your preferred way to meet and play against your fellow first-person shooter fans.

It's where Beachhead Studios head Chacko Sonny believes Elite's most useful, most compelling features may lie. There's more in the "behind the scenes" video, if you're interested in what Elite may bring to Call of Duty.
