Call of Duty Elite hits 1m mark

Activision claim that more than one million players paid for the new Call of Duty Elite premium service in six days of launch on 8th November, with another three million signed up to the free version.

“The demand for Call of Duty Elite at launch was so overwhelming, that for the first several days, the service did not perform up to our or our fans standards,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “I want to personally thank our fans for their patience.

“Our teams have been working around the clock to get the service scaled up to meet demand. I’m very pleased to announce today that the service is now performing stably and anyone who wants to try Call of Duty Elite is now able to do so.

“Due to the scaling challenges we encountered at launch, we are giving all Call of Duty Elite premium Founder members an additional 30 days of the service free of charge.”

More than 80,000 clans have been created and over 100,000 user-generated videos have been uploaded to the service.
