During today’s Activision Blizzard call for second quarter results, the publisher revealed that a new Call of Duty mobile game is currently in development. Activision has created a new in-house mobile studio, which will work on the game alongside developers Beenox and Activision Shanghai. So far, the publisher has not revealed any other information about the game, but the company has also said that it believes it is possible to connect the mobile “ecosystem” with that on console and PC. How this might work remains to be seen, but hopefully Activision will reveal more information soon.
“We believe there is an opportunity to better connect mobile to the global Call of Duty ecosystem, and we are actively recruiting talent to help us on this journey. We have created our own in-house mobile studio and are leading a major recruiting effort through Beenox and Activision Shanghai to support as well. And together I think Daniel [Alegre] already mentioned in the call, these teams are leading a new unannounced mobile project in the Call of Duty franchise, which we are very excited about, ”Activision said.
It will be interesting to see how this new project is different from Call of Duty: Mobile! Since the game’s release in 2019, Call of Duty: Mobile has been very successful for Activision. In the earnings press release, Activision confirmed that the game “is on track to exceed $ 1 billion in consumer spending for the year.” Given this level of success, it’s no surprise that Activision is looking for other ways to expand the mobile audience!
The reach of mobile gaming continues to expand, allowing opportunities that would have been unthinkable on the platform just a few years ago. Hopefully this new project will continue to push the boundaries and deliver an experience to match the best entries in the Call of Duty series. For now, fans will just have to wait and see what the future holds!
