Activision Blizzard just released its annual report for the year 2021 and it was revealed that Call of Duty Mobile has been downloaded over 650 million times. The publisher states this was a record year for Call of Duty: Mobile, following its launch in China, with annual consumer spending on the title well above $1 billion
Safe to say that COD: Mobile has been a huge success for Activision so far and they plan to double down on it with the release of Warzone for Mobile soon enough. The report also mentions that the number of people playing COD: Mobile each month matched the number of players on console/PC in 2021.
This is a massive feat for the game which signals to both the publisher and fans that the future of the franchise on mobile is looking bright.
Call of Duty: Mobile Crossed 650 Million Downloads in 2021
The mobile game space is only about to get even more competitive with the likes of EA’s Apex Legends Mobile prepping for launch soon as well as Valorant headed to the mobile platform. Activision, however, looks like they have their eye on the ball as they continue to push further into the mobile space with upcoming titles such as Warzone for mobile.
The free-to-play battle royale, Warzone, has been key to COD’s success on console/PC this past year and continues to be a major money-maker for the franchise. In terms of new releases, Infinity Ward has finally announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, which is set for release in 2022.
Although Vanguard wasn’t able to bring in the kind of numbers expected off of COD games, the franchise is still going quite strong. Infinity Ward has been on a hot streak of hits with 2019’s Modern Warfare being one of the strongest entries in the series. Fan reaction to the announcement of the sequel has been overwhelmingly positive, which has to be a sign of good things to come.
