There have been various hints that Call of Duty: Warzone will be released on mobile devices. Now, it appears that we have the closest thing to a confirmation for the time being. Recently, Activision published a job listing specifically for mobile developers.
According to a job listing that is looking for a senior producer, the studio is based in Santa Monica, California. It will create “the best AAA mobile games in the world.” The studio’s first game will be a mobile title in the Call of Duty franchise. Activision opened a new division in their studio which will specifically work for AAA mobile games under the banner of Activision.
Warzone Mobile is supposed to be the new Call of Duty mobile game. Its progress was first confirmed in September 2020, according to an old job posting. The game is most likely still under production and will not be released anytime soon. Earlier last year Activision Blizzard’s President and COO Daniel Alegre said, “enabling [Activision’s] franchises on billions of mobile devices” is “by far [its] biggest opportunity.” He also indicated that he intended to take advantage of this by bringing all of the company’s franchises to mobile.
However, Activision already offers a Call of Duty Mobile game. This game has been enormously popular, with 500 million downloads globally as of May 2021. CoD: Mobile, on the other hand, was created in collaboration with Activision by Tencent’s Timi Studios. Activision will be able to develop mobile games in-house with the introduction of Activision Mobile and warzone mobile.
