Activision Product Director Noah Heller talked with T3 a bit about their Call of Duty Elite app and its natural progression from smartphone to tablet.
“We’re working on the tablet app right now, I can’t tell you much about it but what I can tell you is that it will be a truly native, customised application for the tablet, it’s not just a simple port.”
Bringing COD Elite to the tablet has many advantages to the smartphone counterpart as it allows Activision to take advantage of the additional screen space. What additional features will be added to the tablet app remain a mystery but there’s been talks about possibly adding live Heat Maps among other things.
With the app coming to both Android tablets as well as the new iPad, Activision hopes to take advantage of the new HD screens and faster processors to create a rich and seamless Elite experience across all devices. Call of Duty Elite is almost a necessity for any Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 player and with over 2 million smartphone downloads already, a tablet app is a no-brainer.
