The Call of Duty: Elite companion app is still coming to tablets, and this version might be better than the one currently on phones. In a wide-ranging interview with The Guardian, product director Noah Heller confirmed that Beachhead Studios is still actively developing a tablet app. He also noted that it'll be more than a port of the phone version of Elite.
"We're working on a tablet application right now," he told the Guardian. "I can't tell you that much about it, but I can tell you it's a totally, customized app for the tablet, not a simple port." Heller said that while the Elite web site works just fine on tablets, it wants to make the most out of real estate and landscape these things offer.
If you look beyond the boilerplate response, it seems to suggest that the major thing the phone app doesn't support, heat maps, are go. This was neither confirmed or denied by Heller when asked directly about a possible inclusion.
Regardless, we're still stoked about getting Elite on our iPads. The phone app is good, as is the web site, but Elite in general always seemed like it'd be a better fit for 10-inch screens. Here's to hoping it comes out soon-ish.
