Modern Warfare 3 Double XP Weekend & PC Apology

Oh. Weird. So it's free, but not yet out:
"Activison confirmed March 15, 2012 that they are still working on an Elite version for PC players. "Unfortunately I don't have an update for you at this time. We're still working on it. We can't date it yet. It's a challenging piece of development. It's really all I can say. Back in the day I was a PC gamer myself. I cut my teeth on shooters on good, old fashioned Team Fortress 1. So I'm excited to do right by the PC players soon."
It will be released with the mod tools.
Seriously another what 5-6 months until the next CoD title launches, why bother with this whole Elite crap.
For the consoles it makes sense because console CoD fans would buy all the horse armor you can sell for them, but for the PC?
By the time these guys get their act together Black Ops2 will be out and noone will be playing Modern Welfare 3 anymore.

Well, 8 months, but yeah.
Again, though, they've said repeatedly that Elite will be free on the PC, so it isn't a fleecing issue, but it seems the interest boat has probably sailed by this point.

And it's almost definitely a different team doing Black Ops 2. Even if the Elite team is the same whatever groundwork they're doing for MW3 likely carries 90% over for BO2.
Music for the discerning:
