Activision formalizes the development of Warzone on mobiles

Call of Duty Warzone is coming to mobile soon, with the ambition to keep gamers entertained for years to come.

Franchise call of duty, but especially the battle royale Warzone, is a real gold mine for Activision Blizzard. This is why for many years, the firm has wanted to develop its universe as much as possible, with a console game per year and a mobile adaptation. For a few months, rumors have been circulating about a possible version of Warzone for smartphones, and the firm has just made it official.

In a blog post, Activision states that an adaptation of Warzone on mobiles was currently in development, and even made a point of sending out a recruitment message, to find developers in the areas of engineering, production, design, graphics and marketing. If this announcement is promising, it still means that the game is still in its infancy and that the studio is sorely lacking in resources to bring its project to life.

We are currently developing an all-new AAA mobile game that will bring the thrilling, fluid, large-scale action of Call of Duty®: Warzone™ to players on the go.[…]This large-scale multiplayer experience was originally designed for mobile, with state-of-the-art technology serving to entertain gamers around the world for years to come. »

Simple port or independent version?

Also available on Xbox, PlayStation and PC consoles, Warzone is a game mode in which the players evolve in a map that shrinks over the course of the game and must succeed in eliminating all the other players, in team or solo. Since its release at the dawn of the first confinement, Warzone has now been enhanced with several other game modes, but also with a brand new map.

Available completely free of charge, the game also benefits from the merger with the call of duty at the moment, namely Vanguard since a few months. As a reminder, when the 2022 opus is released, Warzone should be entitled to a well-deserved revamp, as well as a brand new map, only a year after the release of Caldera. For the moment, Activision has not communicated a release date for the mobile version, but we can perhaps expect availability around the fall, just like the PC and console version.

It is also not known if the two titles will support cross-play u if the mobile version will be completely independent, just like the game Call of Duty Mobile. More information will be shared in the coming months as development ramps up.
