Call of Duty Elite Surpasses 4 Million Members

Not only has Call of Duty Elite surpassed four million registered gamers, but over one million gamers have actually forked out money for premium memberships

Since Call of Duty Elite's launch on November 8, more than four million gamers have already registered for the new online service overall. Additionally, more than 80,000 Elite clans have been created, 100,000 user-generated videos have been uploaded to Call of Duty Elite and the service has had more than three million daily logins.

"The audience response to Call of Duty Elite's premium service has been beyond our expectations, and we want to thank Call of Duty players around the world for their unprecedented enthusiasm," said Bobby Kotick, CEO, Activision Blizzard. "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."

As incredible as those numbers are, Activision had even more to share. According to Activision's announcement yesterday, the game publisher has sold one million Call of Duty Elite premium memberships after six days. By way of comparison, the premium subscription services of Netflix, Hulu Plus, Sirius XM and Xbox LIVE, each reached one million paid subscribers after approximately one year.

"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. 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," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO, Activision Publishing. "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."
