The future of the Call of Duty franchise seems to be one that will flourish on more than just consoles and PC, as it looks like Activision means business when it comes to mobile gaming. As part of their push towards mobile gaming, Activision recently formed Solid State, which will work in tandem with Beenox and Activision Shanghai on a new AAA, Call of Duty game on mobile.
To bolster their efforts, Activision has made another acquisition, Digital Legends, who will be supporting Beenox, Activision Shanghai, and Solid State on the new Call of Duty title for mobile. The team has previously worked on numerous successful mobile titles such as The Respawnables and Afterpulse.
New Call of Duty game on mobile looks all the more real now
Activision announced their plans for a new COD game on mobile earlier this year, which was hinted at by a job listing on Activision’s Careers page. The as-of-yet unannounced Call of Duty game will be led in development by Activision’s newly established internal studio – Solid State.
“This is an incredible team of development pros at Digital Legends, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to the Activision team,” said Rob Kostich, President, Activision. “This is a great step forward as we continue to build additional world-class development resources focused on creating exciting and innovative content for our players.”
This is certainly a bold move by Activision and a positive sign for COD Mobile fans that they might soon have a new game alongside the already-successful Call of Duty Mobile. It will be interesting to see what kind of experience the new game will turn out to be, and whether it will be a distinct offering from COD Mobile, or a sort of sequel a la PUBG New State.
