Activision announced that its hit battle royale title Call of Duty: Warzone is coming to mobile devices. “We are creating an all-new, AAA mobile experience that will bring the thrilling, fluid and large-scale action of Call of Duty®: Warzone™ to players on the go,“ the company said in a blog post.
The upcoming title will be the second COD game to be adapted for mobile, following the release of Call of Duty: Mobile in 2019. According to Sensor Tower, as of February 2022, Call of Duty: Mobile surpassed $1.5 billion in global lifetime player spending across Google Play and the App Store.
Activision says the mobile Warzone will be a “large-scale, battle royale experience built natively for mobile with cutting-edge technology designed to entertain gamers around the world for many years to come.”
Mobile Warzone’s release date has yet to be announced, but game journalist Tom Henderson noted in December that the title has already been added to Playtest Cloud, a testing platform for mobile games.
