Screenshots of a mobile iteration for Call of Duty had previously leaked. Now official images tied to the title show off incredible visuals and extensive design choices to translate the popular franchise to mobile devices.
"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."
Even though its a title built for mobile, the new game will be bringing extensive customization options to unlock weapons, scorestreaks, and gear to personally tailor the experience just like the main entries on console.
Call of Duty: Mobile is a part of the company's latest push to bring more content to smart device users that revolve around popular franchises like Diablo, Call of Duty and more, according to an Activision Blizzard earnings call in February.
No release date was provided with the announcement, though Activision will be providing pre-launch betas for those who register on their site or the Google Play Store.
