Call Of Duty Mobile Dev reacts to report that the game will be “removed”

Call of Duty Mobile will be supported “for the long term”, Activision has confirmed following reports that the popular mobile title will be phased out in favor of the upcoming Call of Duty Warzone Mobile.

In a statement to the game’s account, Activision said that COD Mobile is an “important part of the entire Call of Duty franchise and our overall mobile strategy.” The statement went on to say that it looks forward to continuing to support the game with a “robust roadmap of new CODM content, activities, and updates for the long term.”

Activision issued this statement apparently in response to Microsoft’s statement to the UK government regarding the planned purchase of Activision Blizzard and all of its franchises, including Call of Duty. Microsoft said in its statement to the UK Competition and Markets Authority that “Call of Duty Mobile is expected to be phased out over time” when Warzone Mobile launches. Call of Duty Mobile will continue to operate in China, Microsoft said in its statement, adding that the game is owned by Tencent.

So it looks like Call of Duty Mobile and Warzone Mobile will be live at the same time similar to how Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 didn’t replace Call of Duty Warzone. However, the original Warzone isn’t getting as much attention as the updates as the newer battle royale game, and one could imagine a similar scenario with Warzone Mobile, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Warzone Mobile is, as its name suggests, a mobile game focused on battle royale. Activision hopes to deliver a genuine Warzone experience with 120 players online, a huge map, vehicles and Gulag-like mechanics, all on iOS and Android devices.

One of the main reasons Microsoft is pushing so aggressively to acquire Activision Blizzard is to gain a foothold in the lucrative mobile gaming space. In addition to COD Mobile and Warzone Mobile, Activision will create a mobile game based on each of its many franchises, all of which would become Microsoft properties if the deal goes through.

As for the main Call of Duty series, the new 2023 Call of Duty game is expected to be a new entry in the Modern Warfare series.
