Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile announced ahead of COD Next

A new mobile version of the Call of Duty battle royale appears to be on its way.


Activision is preparing a full presentation for Call of Duty, which is set to air next week. However, the publisher isn't waiting to make at least one big announcement. The Call of Duty: Warzone phenomenon will no longer be kept to PC and consoles. A new mobile version of the battle royale has been confirmed to be in development.

As of Thursday's announcement, there's little information about this reveal. Here's all anybody knows so far: Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile is coming soon to mobile devices and more information will be revealed during the upcoming Call of Duty Next presentation. However, those who have been following this story may not be entirely surprised by this reveal, considering that Activision began hiring for mobile Warzone developers earlier this year.

COD Next will air on Thursday, September 15 and feature major reveals on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and the pending reboot to Warzone (titled Warzone 2.0). Activision had previously stated that the show would include updates on its line of Call of Duty mobile titles and this appears to be one of the bigger ones. Whether Warzone Mobile will act as a concurrent companion to the existing Warzone or whether it will be a totally separate experience (similar to what Apex Legends has done) remains to be seen.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
