Activision has announced that a brand new Call of Duty mobile game will be launching worldwide soon.
The new Call of Duty mobile game has been announced as being in development by Tencent. The title is now slated to launch worldwide soon.
A new free-to-play mobile game that brings together iconic Call of Duty characters, popular maps, competitive game modes, and signature weapons from the series, including Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series!
Tencent and Activision announced a partnership to bring Call of Duty to mobile in August 2018, saying the mobile game will be free to play.
“We are delivering the definitive, first person action experience in a new mobile title with incredible graphics and visceral Call of Duty gameplay,” said Chris Plummer, VP, Mobile at Activision. “Together with the amazing team at Tencent, we’re bringing together a collection of the most beloved maps, competitive modes, familiar characters and signature weapons from across this storied franchise into one epic experience for the first time on mobile.”
“Call of Duty is synonymous with incredible quality and gameplay, and our team couldn’t be happier working together with Activision to bring it to life on mobile,” said Steven Ma, SVP, Tencent Holdings Limited. “With our expertise creating games custom-built for mobile players, we’re excited to deliver a new, feature-packed Call of Duty experience that all types of fans will enjoy.”
In Call of Duty: Mobile, players will experience the fluid, first-person combat of Call of Duty, fighting head-to-head in fan-favorite modes such as Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy and Free-For-All, in iconic maps from the series such as Nuketown, Crash, Hijacked and more. Along the way, players will earn and unlock classic Call of Duty characters, weapons, scorestreaks and other gear to equip and customize their loadouts as they battle to be among the best in the world.
The new mobile game will be available soon for iOS and Android owners. Players can pre-register for the game at http://callofduty.com/mobile. There will be a beta this summer for the title.
This is not Activision’s first mobile title for Call of Duty. There has been a few over the years, including Call of Duty: Strike Team and Call of Duty: Heroes. Those two games did not pick up with many players, and Activision even shut down the studio behind the Call of Duty: Strike Team mobile game years ago.
Activision Blizzard first mentioned plans to bring a new mobile game with Tencent during their February earnings call. The company has noted previously that they wanted to bring more of their titles, like Call of Duty, Diablo, and more to mobile to expand the availability of the game, and mobile games are very popular in certain regions worldwide.
