Battlefield 3 Premium sells over 2 million

EA's $50 Battlefield 3 Premium "subscription" has hit yet another milestone. The company has announced that more than two million players are taking advantage of Premium, which adds a number of new map packs for DICE's popular online shooter. Undoubtedly, a large portion of these subscribers are coming from Battlefield 3: Premium Edition, a $70 retail version that includes the Premium DLC. And although Activision hasn't revealed updated Call of Duty Elite numbers, today's announcement means that Battlefield has, essentially, caught up with Elite's 2 million subscribers. In addition, EA says that catalog sales of Battlefield 3 is outperforming expectations. Combined sales of Battlefield 3 and FIFA 12 are over 4 million units in the company's first half.

Battlefield digital revenues have been growing steadily
