Call of Duty: Elite Enlists One Million Premium Members

by William Schwartz


Activision has revealed that since launching on the 8th, Call of Duty: Elite has enlisted over one million premium members for the service.  These numbers are quite impressive considering the extensive problems that have plagued the service from the very start.

Comparing this rapid adoption to other premium subscription style offerings like Netflix, Hulu, and Xbox Live, Activision has reached the one million subscriber number more quickly. While Elite might still not be running on all cylinders from a technical standpoint, Activision did announce that they anticipate most issues will be sorted by December 1st.

Activision had this to say about the success of Elite:

“The number of gamers who have registered for Call of Duty: Elite further illustrates how this service is poised to redefine social gaming and set a new bar for interactive entertainment.”

Bobby Kotick of Activision also reiterated that the consumer response to Elite was beyond their expectations, which the company has also pointed the finger at as the culprit behind the intermittent service since launch.
