Activision has delayed the launch of the Call of Duty: mobile app after being inundated with complaints from users.
Launched alongside Modern Warfare 3, Elite serves as a stat-tracking and social network device, but has been beset with problems caused by their servers being inundated by gamers, which has led Activision to take the decision to help ease the strain.
The company said in a statement: "We are holding back on launching the Elite mobile applications until the service is stable and our players can easily access it. We will have the apps ready to launch as soon as we are comfortable the experience will be a great one."
The free version of Elite enables users to manage custom classes, share HD gameplay videos and join groups and clans.
Those who pay the £34.99 ($49.99) annual membership fee also gain access to all downloadable content released for the duration of their membership at no extra cost, as well as other benefits that include competitions with real world prizes.
There is currently no word when Elite's mobile app will be released.
