Call of Duty Warzone Mobile: Release date, details, rumors, new studio

Activision has hinted that Call of Duty: Warzone could be set for its own individual game on mobile. We have all the latest news and rumors.

Despite the massive success of CoD: Mobile, Activision is looking to bring a fully-fledged version of Warzone separately to mobile phones. Here’s all the latest on a handheld version of Call of Duty: Warzone, including its potential release date, new information, and more.

Activision’s domination of the first-person shooter market doesn’t seem to be enough as they are allegedly looking to expand their repertoire of Call of Duty games.

Currently, Activision has Modern Warfare (2019), Black Ops Cold War, Vanguard, Warzone, and CoD: Mobile as currently supported options. Activision’s free-to-play battle royale experience has proven to be a big winner for the company, and now Activision wants a fully-fledged Warzone title on mobile.

Here’s everything we know about Call of Duty Warzone: Mobile so far.

Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile release date

The latest updates on the Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile project suggest that the handheld battle royale game could see a release as early as 2022.

Renowned video game leaker Tom Henderson announced the revelation in a December 7 Tweet saying that: “Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile is scoped for 2022. It was recently added to the PlaytestCloud database.”

It was back in March 2021 that Activision sent out a survey asking Call of Duty: Mobile players if they’d like to see Verdansk come to the much-played handheld CoD game.

Obviously, Verdansk is no more and has been subsequently replaced by the gorgeous new Caldera map in Warzone Pacific. So when the game does come out, players will probably be able to explore the island of Caldera instead.

It’s entirely possible that the game has been in development for some time already. There’s also the obvious positive in that Warzone already exists, so the devs already know what works, what doesn’t, and how to transition it to handheld devices.

Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile details & new studio

The topic of conversation was really put under the spotlight when Activision announced in a LinkedIn post that, “Activision Mobile has put up new roles! Teams are focused on Live Operations and content expansion across CoD Mobile and Warzone.”

The official website is advertising for over 50 roles with many geared towards “a new mobile title.” It’s possible that Activision wants this knowledge to become more public to counteract the rival title from EA / DICE – Battlefield Mobile.

If we go even further back to September 2020, we can see that Activision was recruiting for an “Executive Producer, Features” for a project called “WZM.” This further supports the idea that they’ve had this idea in the pipeline for some time.

June 7, 2021, saw a new job listing for a Mobile Producer at a new Mobile dedicated development studio appear with the job listing stating that the role will be working on a “new AAA mobile game in the Call of Duty franchise.”

It has not yet been confirmed that this role and new studio will be working on the rumored Warzone Mobile game, but it would make sense considering that it fits the bill for being a AAA game in the franchise.

Furthermore, ModernWarzone reported that the most recent Activision Investor Call featured an interesting comment saying: “Call of Duty is getting a new mobile brand that they believe will take the franchise to new heights.”

Once again, unless a full, story-based campaign is coming, CoD Mobile already exists, and with Zombies, so it would naturally have to be some kind of battle royale experience, surely.


News, and even rumors, are still very scarce on the potential Call of Duty Warzone: Mobile project right now. But as always, once we start hearing more news then you can read it here first at Charlie INTEL.

CoD Points price: How to buy, spend & do they carry over

CoD Points are the official currency of Call of Duty. Check out CoD Point prices, where to buy them, and whether they transfer between games.

Activision’s in-game currency lets players purchase cosmetics for their characters, and we’ve got everything you need to know about CoD Points prices, how to buy them, and all the items you can spend them on.

Call of Duty offers a huge palette of extra goodies you can add to your game, requiring players to spend their own currency named CoD Points to acquire them.

CoD Points can be purchased in-game using the menu systems in games like Vanguard or Warzone or through console marketplaces like the PS Store or Xbox Marketplace.

The gaming landscape has changed over the years with the incorporation of microtransactions and live-gaming services. Many games offer extra content – with cosmetics being a big proponent of this. With Vanguard and Warzone offering special Attack on Titan and Christmas skins as well as unique weapon Blueprints for popular weapons, it becomes easy to see why players would want to spend CoD Points.

CoD Points prices

There are different amounts and bundles you can opt for when buying CoD Points that are tailored to different needs.

Some players just need to top up their account with a few hundred points to get the latest bundle. Whereas others need a big restock with the intention of spending many points. The more points you want, the bigger the discounts grow.

Here are the different prices for the various CoD Points bundles:

  • 200 CoD Points: $1.99 / £1.79
  • 500 CoD Points: $4.99 / £4.31
  • 1,000 (+100 Bonus) CoD Points: $9.99 / £8.49
  • 2,000 (+400 Bonus) CoD Points: $19.99 / £16.79
  • 4,000 (+1,000 Bonus) CoD Points: $39.99 / £34.99
  • 7,000 (+2,500 Bonus) CoD Points: $74.99 / £69.99
  • 10,000 (+3,000 Bonus) CoD Points: $99.99 / £84.99

How to buy COD Points

You can be very flexible with how you buy COD Points as there are a few different ways to do so. To make sure you’re buying them for the right platform, just double-check with our guide on transferring COD Points across platforms.

There are four ways you can buy COD Points:

  • PC players can purchase CoD Points on the Battle.net website
  • PS4 & PS5 players can purchase CoD Points in the PS Store on their console, or on the PlayStation website
  • Xbox Series X, Series S, or One players can buy CoD Points on the Xbox Marketplace on their console, or the official Microsoft Store website
  • Select physical retailers stock vouchers and gift cards with a code that players can redeem for CoD Points.

Where to spend CoD Points

Spending your CoD Points is incredibly easy, with players able to purchase cosmetic bundles and Blueprints in the in-game store.

The stores are available in Vanguard, Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, and Modern Warfare, so you can kit out your character regardless of your preferred title.

Do CoD Points carry over across games?

The good news is that your CoD Points will transfer across your Call of Duty games, as they are linked to your Activision account.

Players who still have CoD Points in their account from Black Ops Cold War don’t need to worry, as they will automatically be in your account when turning to Vanguard.

What can I buy with COD Points?

Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.

Battle Pass

Vanguard Season 1 Battle Pass

A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific are currently in Season 1 at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.

It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 1, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough CoD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.

You can buy the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:

Bundles

Attack on Titan bundle CoD

The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.

The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.

The new year is well underway, and the first season of CoD Mobile in 2022 is here. Titled ‘Heist,’ Season 1 includes two new maps, two new weapons, and a host of tweaks and fixes to improve your gameplay.

CoD Mobile Season 11 officially dropped on December 17, 2021, bringing festive cosmetics, a new multiplayer map, and Undead Siege.

Even though the patch was filled with content, CoD Mobile fans are already thinking about what’s next. As always, the iOS and Android title is set to restart in the new year with a brand new update.

For the past few weeks, very little has been known about CoD Mobile Season 1 2022, but thanks to some leaked Korean patch notes, we know exactly what to expect when the update drops.

When does CoD Mobile Season 1 2022 Heist release?

The good news is that CoD Mobile Season 1: Heist officially kicks off on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, at 4pm PT / 7pm ET.

Patches for the game rarely have any downtime, so you won’t have to sit looking at a loading screen. As soon as the update drops, you’ll be able to drop into matches and test out the new items and maps.

CoD Mobile Season 1 2022 will include two new weapons for players to use. First up, Modern Warfare’s Kilo 141 assault rifle joins the game from Modern Warfare. Warzone players will remember this gun well, as it dominated the meta for a period in 2020.

SMG players will also get something new, with the franchise’s classic PPSh-41 also joining the fray. We don’t know how powerful these guns will be just yet, but early test builds suggest the Kilo could be a powerful option.

CoD: Mobile Season 1 2022 new maps: Hacienda and Nuketown Temple

On top of two new weapons, CoD Mobile fans will also get to compete on two new maps, with a Black Ops 4 map joining the action.

Hacienda makes its mobile debut, a fan-favorite map based on a sprawling mansion, complete with an indoor courtyard and vineyard. On top of that, players will get Nuketown Temple, a redesigned version of the classic map to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

CoD Mobile Season 1 2022 New Modes & Battle Pass

The first update of 2022 also brings three new modes, with Heist returning from Black Ops 4, Payout Search & Destroy, and Red Envelope Kill Confirmed, which devs claim is “full of surprises.”

As always, there’s also a new Battle Pass, filled with limited-time cosmetic items to set your Operator apart from the rest.
