The giant Activision has decided to take the mobile video game seriously, since the group has just recently created a new entity: Activision Mobile. Various job offers are in fact available on the Activision website, in particular to integrate this new studio dedicated to the development of games for smartphones and tablets.
A real Call of Duty AAA signed “Activision Mobile”?
Obviously, the attraction of Activision for the mobile market is not new, since in February 2020 the CEO of the group Bobby Kotick indicated that it was “the biggest gaming platform”, and that the company was thinking of declining its flagship licenses on smartphones and tablets. We already have Call of Duty Mobile, we will soon have a certain Diablo Immortals to name but one, but we should also soon find Warcraft in mobile version
The announcement explains in particular: “Our first project is a new AAA mobile title in the Call of Duty franchise and we are looking for top talent from the world of mobiles, consoles and PCs, passionate about their work, who share our belief in what can and should be the AAA experiences on mobile. We’re incredibly excited to get our teams together and get to work, and we invite you to join us in creating something special.”
Obviously, it will be necessary to wait a little longer before discovering the projects from Activision Mobile (whose studio has still not been formalized), but no doubt that the company will take advantage of the effervescence E3 / Summer Game Fest to exhibit proudly its upcoming news regarding the Call of Duty license.
The current Call of Duty Mobile has several hundred million downloads right now, and is still one of the most popular (and profitable) games on mobile today since its launch two years ago. Remember that Battlefield is also planning its arrival on smartphones very soon.
