What is COD Elite?

When the cover art and logo for MW3 was leaked a few days ago, it was accompanied by another logo for something called "Call of Duty: Elite" (pictured above). Nobody at this point is completely sure of what COD Elite actually is. However, speculation is that COD Elite is the name of an upcoming "all-new and connected digital universe". After reporting profits of $503 million, Activision revealed that their next Call of Duty release (MW3) will be accompanied by an unprecedented online universe. It should be noted that a few months ago, rumors that MW3 would have its own MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) surfaced on the Internet. The question is: Will this "digital universe" be free to use or will players have to pay a monthly subscription?
