Call of Duty Elite tops one million subscribers in opening week

Despite continued issues and server outages Activision's subscription-based COD service Call of Duty Elite has topped one million subscribers

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 developer Activision has revealed that the game's newly launch additional subscription based service, Call of Duty Elite, has topped the one million Elite subscribers milestone in its opening week.

Despite being hit by continued issues and service outages, sign ups for the COD extension have hit staggering heights with more than one million users splashing the cash on the premium subscription in the six days following launch.

Whilst an Elite subscription comes packaged with the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Hardened Edition, eager gamers can drop £34.99 for a year's access via the PSN and Xbox Live outlets. More than four million users have signed up to the service's free tier.

"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 Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick.

"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."

Call of Duty Elite Issues

Plagued with server outages in the days following launch Activision blamed the continued problems on unexpectedly high demand before being forced to extend subscribers' access to the system with a 30 day free extension.
