Top 7 Upcoming Mobile Games: Valorant Mobile, Assassin’s Creed: Codename JADE, Battlefield and More

Mobile games are only about to get bigger, and hopefully, better.


The bold new frontier for gaming is clearly now mobile as the biggest publishers in the industry have made it their mission to have their biggest IPs be present on mobile. While just getting to mobile first may have been enough half a decade ago, the quality of games available on the platform can rival the best AAA experiences that consoles and PC have to offer.

Even though the platform is limited by the hardware present, mobile hardware tech has grown by leaps and bounds, which allows developers to craft truly large-scale, AAA-level experiences for the platform. Publishers like Ubisoft and Activision Blizzard have been making headway in the mobile games industry and it is great to see intense competition in the space as they go up against the likes of BGMI, PUBG Mobile, and Free Fire.

Here, we take a look at some of the most highly-anticipated games coming to mobile in the next couple of years and what fans can expect from them.

List of Highly-Anticipated Mobile Games and What to Expect From Them

  • Battlefield Mobile
  • Valorant Mobile
  • Call of Duty Warzone for Mobile
  • The Division Resurgence
  • Assassin’s Creed Codename JADE
  • Rainbow Six
  • Destiny

Battlefield Mobile

Battlefield Mobile Closed Beta Test

EA hasn’t necessarily dropped the ball yet when it comes to the Battlefield franchise as their flagship title, Battlefield 2042 seems to have picked up momentum roughly a year after its launch. EA’s approach to the franchise’s future has been dual-pronged as they are now focusing on bringing the signature Battlefield experience to platforms like mobile.

Late last year, EA confirmed Battlefield Mobile, which is currently available for pre-registration on mobile. The game will be going up against titans of the industry like the aforementioned PUBG Mobile and Free Fire and it is a long, hard road to gaining footing in the industry.

However, given the massive scale and scope of the Battlefield games, there is a good chance that the game will be able to provide a distinct-enough experience that helps it stand out from the herd.

Expected Release Date and Availability in India

The game is set for release in 2022 and will be available on both Android and iOS.

The Division Resurgence

The Division, despite mixed reviews at launch, has found footing in the industry as a solid, multiplayer, co-op experience that has a lot to offer. Ubisoft has been able to capitalize on the quality of the online experience on consoles and PC and seeks to replicate the same success on mobile.

Ubisoft has identified the mobile game space as a great avenue to expand their biggest IPs, and the Division seems like a perfect fit. In contrast to the majority of online shooters on mobile, The Division will have a sizeable open world that emphasizes storytelling as much as it does frantic firefights.

This open-world game has the potential to become the next big thing in the mobile games industry and Ubisoft is looking to put significant weight behind the project. The game will feature PvP modes as well as the signature co-op experience The Division has been known for.

Expected Release Date and Availability in India

The game is set for release in 2023 and will be available on both Android and iOS.

Valorant Mobile

Valorant Mobile

The game that took the esports world by storm, Valorant is now heading over to the mobile games market to seek domination again. There is no denying that Riot has found momentum on PC and going beyond the platform to mobile and console is the right way forward for the game to grow.

Certainly, Riot will be making adjustments and tweaks to the gameplay to cater to the mobile game crowd but early tests seem to have garnered positive reviews from the fanbase. The mobile esports industry has been growing by leaps and bounds and there is a good chance Valorant can gain massive success as one of, if not the biggest mobile esports title in the world.

It is unclear when Valorant Mobile will be available on Android/iOS but reports would suggest that the game will hold open beta tests towards the end of 2022 or the start of 2023.

Expected Release Date and Availability in India

The game is likely set for release in 2023 and will be available on both Android and iOS.

Call of Duty Warzone

Warzone, for the most part, has been the biggest contributing factor in COD’s success in the new gen and it is no surprise that Activision wants to double down on it with a run on mobile. Streaming is a key factor that decides the level of success games can witness in the modern day and there has rarely been a game that has found success through streaming more so than Call of Duty Warzone.

Activision could be looking to replicate that with Warzone for mobile and from the looks of the promotional material for Warzone, there is a good chance it could do that. Additionally, this isn’t just a mobile knock-off of Warzone as the game will be part of Activision’s plans for the franchise’s future.

The publisher has confirmed that Warzone for mobile will allow cross-progression. Meaning, that the progress players make in Warzone on either console, PC, or mobile will be carried across all platforms. Essentially meaning, that you could play Warzone on your console and then play it on your phone on your way to work, and you will retain progress from both platforms.

Destiny, Game Cover

There was a lot of chatter about whether Bungie will be able to sustain all the momentum from the original and create a game that could surpass the original. It would seem that not only has Bungie improved upon the original but Destiny 2 is perhaps the single-most credible argument for why the “games as service model” works.

It has now been reported that Bungie is also now working on a mobile version of Destiny alongside NetEase. This is an extremely exciting prospect as Bungie has proved twice now that they can not only sustain but improve a solid platform with multiple expansions that can provide endless hours of gameplay.

It will be interesting to see if the studio can hit the ground running and provide players with one of the most satisfying FPS experiences in gaming.

Expected Release Date and Availability in India

The game has not been announced yet officially by Bungie, but it is likely to be available on both Android and iOS.

Rainbow Six Mobile

From the sound of it, it looks like Rainbow Six and Valorant are headed on a collision course for a battle between the two most competitive shooters, but this time, in the mobile games industry. Both Rainbow Six and Valorant have found enormous success as highly-competitive titles perfect for esports.

Ubisoft looks to bring the signature, tactical shooter to mobile and provide players with a distinct experience. Early gameplay footage from the title reflects the sort of deliberate FPS experience Ubisoft has perfected on console and PC and there is nothing stopping them from doing the same on the mobile platform.

If Ubisoft can crack the code and hit the ground running, Rainbo Six could just be the competitive, esports title on mobile, the world, especially India, has been asking for.

The game is set for release in 2023 and will be available on both Android and iOS.

Assassin’s Creed: Codename JADE

While the rest of this list is dominated by shooters, Assassin’s Creed Codename JADE is a whole other beast entirely. The game is being billed as a AAA, single-player, story-focused experience, the likes of which have been reserved for PC and Consoles. Ubisoft seeks to buck that trend and provide mobile gamers with the cinematic, action-packed Assassin’s Creed experience.

The game will let players create their very own Assassin and explore districts and regions in China. From parkouring all across the Great Wall of China to skipping across rooftops while taking down enemies, Codename JADE will probably have a lot to offer.

Details on the game, its story, and gameplay are sparse but it looks like the game could be set for release in 2023. It will be interesting to see if the game is part of Ubisoft’s plans with the Assassin’s Creed Infinity platform
