Call of Duty Elite Will be Free for Black Ops 2

Call of Duty Elite was introduced with the launch of Modern Warfare 3.  The premium service for everything Call of Duty was Activision's experiment to extend the product outside the boundaries of the game while providing a premium service for fans of the series.  It also provided regular content updates which were also sold as premium DLC to non-subscribers of the $60 service.  For the most part, it seems Elite was successful, but perhaps it was a bit confusing and burdensome for the more casual player.

Call of Duty Elite is Still Down Despite 4x Increase in Capacity

Call of Duty: Elite, Activision's premium service for CoD players is still down - 2 full days after the launch of Modern Warfare 3.  The reason is pretty obvious, they were woefully under prepared for the volume of traffic the website and service was going to do.  This really shouldn't come as a surprise, MMO launches on the PC typically have this problem, and while Elite isn't exactly an MMO launch itself - the scale of it seems to be similar.  Some estimates put Modern Warfare 3 on track to sell over 15 million copies across three platforms by the end of the year.
