Codemasters Online has announced that Jumpgate Evolution has reached 250,000 beta sign-ups across Europe and North America.
That figure makes the spaceship MMO beta the biggest Codemasters Online has had yet.
The MMO was originally down for release last year before moving to - and missing - a June 2009 date.
Jumpgate: Evolution is currently undergoing closed "family and friend" testing, and open beta - when those 250,000 people get a chance to play - will begin "later this year".
