The Call of Duty Elite beta begins tomorrow and the first wave of people selected to be testers will be informed today.
Call of Duty: Elite is of course the multiplayer stat-tracking subscription service set to launch with Modern Warfare 3.
Activision's 'social media guy' Dan Amrich reiterated that 2 million people in total applied via email to be part of the Elite beta.
He said that as many people as possible will be crammed into Elite pre-release but beta access will be done in waves, with the first wave being pretty small.
"It's hard to give specific numbers for these questions, since both of these depend on the system itself," he said in an Elite FAQ.
"Remember, this is a live beta with an evolving system - it's like entering the Indy 500 while the car is still being built. As long as the system can remain stable, more people will be invited as frequently as possible - as many and as often as the system can accommodate."
The beta itself will use Black Ops data with news of its Modern Warfare 3 integration being discussed at the Call of Duty XP convention. Elite will officially launch with Modern Warfare 3 on November 8.
