"Play your way across multiple game modes as you engage in head-to-head battle through fan-favorite maps like Nuketown and Crash, all optimized for mobile".
The most recent console game in the series - Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - introduced such a mode titled Blackout, which has gone on to become one of the most popular in the franchise's history. Hearthstone also has a large mobile audience, which has helped the game grow to new heights, so it makes sense for Call of Duty to follow. Weapons, scorestreaks, and loadouts all return - it's a full COD game on your phone. Considering that Tencent has a part to play in it, the likelihood of it is low as it will directly compete with their flagship title: PUBG Mobile.
Hopefully Call of Duty: Mobile will be a polished experience when it launches on mobile this year. Fans of the franchise have been clamoring a proper mobile release, and today, Activision announced that Call of Duty: Mobile is coming to previously unannounced regions, including North America, South America, Europe, and more.
Call of Duty: Mobile also includes weapons and characters from previous Call of Duty games, including Black Ops and Modern Warfare. Players can not pre-register for the iOS version yet, but the website says the game is coming soon to the App Store.
The new mobile game was developed alongside Chinese company Tencent, according to Activision, particularly its Timi studio behind games like CrossFire and Honor of Kings.
Those that are interested in trying out the game on Android devices can go to the CoD website to pre-register. There will be a beta this summer for the title.
Call of Duty is coming to your smartphone!
The new game was built on the Unity engine to bring a fluid experience on mobile devices. Our best guess is that the stable version of Call of Duty Mobile will arrive later this year after successful beta testing.
