A ‘New Call of Duty Mobile Game’ is in Development by Activision’s New Studio, ‘Activision Mobile’
Activision has announced that it is working on a new ‘Call of Duty’ Mobile game for iOS and Android devices.
The company has established a new studio to work on the latest mobile game, which was first hinted at in a series of job postings back in June of this year. Business officials have since verified during their second-quarter earnings call for the year 2021 that the studio exists.
In addition, a job advertisement for an executive producer of features on “a new AAA mobile FPS in the Call of Duty series” was discovered in September 2020 before being removed from the internet. It included many allusions to Warzone Mobile, implying that Activision intended to extend the popular battle royale game to other platforms in the future.
In addition, Activision Shanghai Studios and Beenox will provide their assistance to the project’s development.
Moreover, 500 million downloads and $1 billion in lifetime consumer spending have been recorded for Call of Duty: Mobile since its release as a free-to-play game in November 2019. The firm anticipates that the shooter will generate more than $1 billion in consumer spending in only one year in 2021.
“We believe there is an opportunity to better connect the mobile platform to the overall Call of Duty ecosystem in the long term, and we are aggressively hiring talent to help us on this journey,” said Activision president Rob Kostich. “When we think about the long term, where we see more compelling growth on the [mobile] platform, I’d say we believe there is an opportunity to better connect the mobile platform to the overall Call of Duty ecosystem,” he added.
In addition, we’ve established our internal mobile studio and are spearheading a big recruitment drive throughout Beenox and Activision Shanghai to support it. Together, these teams lead an undisclosed new mobile project in the Call of Duty brand, which we’re very enthusiastic about.
There were no specifics or a timeline provided regarding when fans should expect the next mobile entry in the Call of Duty universe, though it’s reasonable to assume the game will be free-to-play given the success of both Call of Duty: Mobile and Call of Duty: Warzone, which was both released last year.
It will be fascinating to see how this new project differs from Call of Duty: Mobile in terms of gameplay. Despite the fact that the game was released in 2019, Call of Duty: Mobile has been massive. However, success for Activision since its debut. In its results press release, Activision stated that the game “is on pace to generate more than $1 billion in consumer spending for the year.” Given this degree of success, it should come as no surprise that Activision is exploring new methods to broaden the mobile audience even more! So, start playing Call of Duty: Mobile on PC using the BlueStacks Android emulator and experience unlimited fun with your gaming buddies on a bigger screen.
