Activision Acquired Mobile Game Developer Company Digital Legends. Digital Legends, a mobile gaming studio, has been purchased by Activision Blizzard. The new team at the publisher will concentrate on an unnamed Call of Duty mobile game.
The Respawnables, a cartoon-style shooter, and Afterpulse, a more realistic Call of Duty-like game, were both produced and distributed by Digital Legends earlier. The company’s past with mobile shooters most likely foreshadows the type of game it will create under Activision’s ownership. The studio will focus on an “unannounced new mobile project within the Call of Duty world” as part of Activision, which is already in development across Solid State, Beenox, and Activision Shanghai, according to the company.

Activision’s president of mobile, Chris Plummer, said in a statement that Digital Legends has been working with the firm for “much of this year.”
In the fall of 2019, Activision Blizzard launched Call of Duty: Mobile, the first mobile game in the Call of Duty world. It received over 300 million downloads in its first year and generated $ 480 million in sales. Call of Duty: Mobile became the third highest-grossing mobile shooter in the United States as a result of this. According to the corporation, the title’s revenue might top $1 billion by the end of 2021. Activision Blizzard is now working on a Diablo Immortal mobile game. They hope to produce a project in the Warcraft realm and a smartphone app later.
