Why Is Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile Buzzing?

Call of Duty: Mobile has been a huge success, prompting Activision to work on a mobile version of Call of Duty’s popular battle royale mode, Warzone.


The concept of a Warzone mobile app first started buzzing in the Call of Duty community when Activision posted job listings for a new studio a few days ago called “Activision Mobile.” The internal development studio’s description explained that they would be focusing on the publishing operations and live services of Call of Duty: Mobile, even creating “a new AAA Call of Duty mobile game.”


The team’s first project, according to the job listings on LinkedIn, will be the aforementioned AAA Call of Duty franchise game. It has not been announced what the game is but the Call of Duty community has been buzzing with the potential of a mobile version of Warzone for quite a bit. And now it seems to be coming to fruition.


Maybe.


Here is everything we know thus far about Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile.


Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile early rumors and leaks


Call of Duty fans became suspicious that Warzone was coming to mobile all the way back in 2020. That’s when job listings first appeared on Activision’s official website. But the job listing was more than just a list of duties. It contained a secret project called “WZM.”


Which is quite telling.


At that point, Activision was looking for an executive producer for this project. The main mission of this producer would be to “harvest, adapt and deliver the essential features from Warzone console and PC into their best mobile instantiation.”


Even more telling.


More recent job postings have been more careful not to give away as much information about these future mobile projects. But for now, the Call of Duty community is quite certain that Warzone is coming to mobile. It’s just a matter of when.


Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile release date


There are currently 50 job openings listed on Activision’s website that are all focused on an unnamed mobile title. So the game is in full gear, with Activision looking to build a team and get something going.


But it’s not currently clear when Warzone Mobile would come out.


In March, Activision asked Call of Duty: Mobile players if they’d want to see Verdansk come to Call of Duty’s mobile app. Verdansk is the current map for Call of Duty: Warzone. Since this has been on Activision’s mind, it’s possible that it’s been in development for a while and is now picking up the pace.


While it’s unclear what stage of development the app is currently in, it’s probably faster to put the battle royale on the phone since Activision already has experience putting other Call of Duty titles onto handheld devices.


For now, fans will have to wait and see.
