Mobile gamers are soon going to get another royale shooter game. Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Warzone will be making its way to smartphones very soon. The company has not given us the launch details for the game but it has talked about what we can expect from the popular game in a mobile avatar.
“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,” Activision said in its statement on Thursday.
The company mentioned Call of Duty: Warzone will be a “large-scale, battle royale experience” that will be designed “natively for mobile with cutting-edge technology designed to entertain gamers around the world for many years to come.”
Activision has not talked about the cross-device utility of the game, or whether you can only play Call of Duty: Warzone with other mobile players. Mobile games have become popular thanks to powerful smartphones and an ecosystem that is ripe from a revenue point of view. Activision knows this very well, and it is likely that the success of Call of Duty: Mobile has made them consider another shot at the evolving segment.
And the scope for the company to make money via in-app purchases is huge. Companies like Krafton, Activision and Garena have experienced the mobile gaming craze first hand, with games like PUBG Mobile (and BGMI), Call of Duty: Mobile and Free Fire over the past few years.
We’re excited to see how Activision betters on its existing Call of Duty version, and give itself a chance to repeat the success formula of the first version.
Activision has already made the news for good and bad reasons this year.
It faces pending lawsuits, as well as the deal that will make it part of Microsoft after its acquisition for a whopping $68.7 billion that was reported in January and likely to be finalised before the end of the year.
