According to Activision, more than two million people signed up to participate in the beta phase of Call of Duty: Elite. And it was to be expected. I mean, seriously now. It’s Call Of Duty. Apart from all those haters out there, who wouldn’t want to give a shot at its latest service?
Activision’s Dan Amrich, wrote on his blog that the amount of those sign-ups for Elite blew his mind and added:
“And don’t be discouraged by the big number, thinking you shouldn’t bother because they already have enough people – two million volunteers among 30 million Call of Duty players is a small amount. More would be even better.”
Call Of Duty: Elite is a service that features social networking and stat-tracking and is being developed by Beachhead. It’s a way to bring CoD to more people and Activision will do everything they can to milk the golden cow. Damn straight right!
