Ex-CoD strategist working on mobile game Breach & Clear

Former Call of Duty chief strategist Robert Bowling is getting a little action on the side, assisting a new developer with its first tactical strategy title known as Breach & Clear. The game, however, has nothing to do with Robotoki, the development studio he founded in April.

"We're hoping to change the conversation about what denotes a mobile game," Bowling told GI.biz. "With Breach & Clear, we've taken the design principles of creating a major console release and transferred that to a title that just so happens to be launching on mobile devices. Our focus is to take a gameplay experience and mechanic that is built from the ground up for mobile or touch control and enhance it with the depth and progression you'd expect from a AAA console release."

The game, which puts the player in the role of a special operations team member planning and executing high-risk missions, is being developed by Gun Media and Bowling will act as executive producer.

Bowling said he has been working on the game for a year and it will be coming to iOS and Android this spring. But he was quick to clarify that it has no relation to the upcoming Human Element game from Robotoki, and will not affect its production. He said that Robotoki is ramping up staff and will be announcing a new game on March 4, which could be the promised Human Element prequel for OUYA.
