Call of Duty series publisher, Activision, is extending all premium subscriptions to its online stat-tracking and community service, Call Of Duty Elite, until March, 2013.
Premium members that paid for the service will maintain access to all of Elite's features for Modern Warfare 3 ahead of next week's launch of Black Ops 2.
"We are pleased to announce that we're extending your access to Call of Duty Elite Premium features for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 until March 1, 2013," said the publisher.
"We will be extending your access between 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM EST on November 8, 2012. You may notice a temporary Call of Duty Elite service interruption during this time.
"Your new extended access will not be visible when viewing your account details through Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network. Rest assured, your access has been extended."
Beginning with the launch of Black Ops 2 next week, Elite will be free to all players.
DLC will be available either individually or collectively through a "Season Pass" -- which was included as part of Elite with last year's Modern Warfare 3.
The Season Pass is priced at 4000 Microsoft Points for all four DLC packs released throughout 2013. As always, each will also be available separately for 1200 Microsoft Points (about $19).
