The smartphone edition of the service has racked up more than 2 million downloads since launch, convincing the firm to fast track a tablet edition.
"We're working on the tablet app right now, I can't tell you much about it but what I can tell you is that it will be a truly native, customised application for the tablet, it's not just a simple port," Activision product director Noah Heller told T3.
"Once we saw how popular the mobile app was we realised, look we have to build something special for tablet."
The Call of Duty Elite tablet app will feature cross-compatibility with the PC, Mac and Xbox 360 service. It is expected to carry many of the same features as its mobile counterpart, such as weapon loadout customisation.
A release date for the Call of Duty Elite tablet app is yet to be confirmed.
