‘Warzone’ has been, without a doubt, one of Activision Blizzard’s best bets. The free Battle Royale of the franchise has become one of the main exponents of the genre and it was a matter of time before the company decided to launch it on mobile. And yes, we knew the title was in development, but now it’s finally official.

And it is that Activision Blizzard has confirmed ‘Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile‘, an experience for mobile gamers that, it must be said, not much is known about. At the moment, the only thing we have is a small teaser trailer, a logo and a quote: the CODNext of September 15.

It is important not to neglect mobile gamers

In the teaser above these lines we can see the only images of ‘Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile‘. This game, previously known as COD: Project Aurora, is now officially materialized and will surely come ready to compete against such titans as ‘Free Fire’, ‘PUBG’, ‘Apex Legends’ or ‘Fortnite‘.

What can we extract from the trailer? Little thing, unless we have a trained eye and many hours in the game, in which case it is obvious at first glance that the plane is the same as it was when Verdansk was the main map. Does that mean Verdansk is coming back? Surely we will leave doubts in a few days.

Be that as it may, it makes sense for Activision Blizzard to continue betting on mobile gamers. According to the annual report of the consultancy newzoodated July 2022, mobile games represent the 53% of all revenue from the global video game industry ($103.5 billion). Console games, to put it in context, have generated $52.9 billion.

The same can be said of the European case. In the report of the Interactive Software Federation of Europe (ISFE) and the European Games Developer Federation (EGDF) of 2021 it is stated that mobile games account for 40% of revenue, compared to 14% for PC and 44% for consoles. It is a medium that should not be lost sight of given its penetration in users.
