Call of Duty Elite pulls 2 million beta testers

By Brenna Hillier, Tuesday, 14 June 2011 00:37 GMT

Despite the rage, Activision’s Call of Duty Elite service is obviously attractive: over 2 million users have signed up for its beta.

Activision’s social-media lead Dan Amrich revealed the staggering interest via his blog.

Amrich asked fans to continuing signing up anyway – with a reported 30 million Call of Duty players world-wide, the beta is likely to be a big one.

Sign-ups opened just under two weeks ago. Analysts predicted the service would reach 1.5 million subscribers by the end of the year.

The beta kicks off on July 14.

Call of Duty Elite will come in free and subscription flavours, and sport a variety of social and bonus content. Check out the official FAQ and chart of free features (PDF file).

Call of Duty Elite will launch alongside Modern Warfare 3 in November.
