A new Activision job listing on the company’s official website implies that Call of Duty Warzone will be coming to mobile phones soon.
The job listing is titled “Executive Producer, Features” and that the position is for “WZM” which appears to be a codename for Warzone Mobile. As of writing, the job listing has been taken down because the job has already been filled.
The listing also describes the job is for a “new mobile FPS in the Call of Duty franchise” and “As Executive Producer, Features you will own product framing and player experience of a new AAA mobile FPS in the Call of Duty franchise.“
In addition, the listing explains that the person perfect for the job must learn to adapt Warzone into a mobile experience and is knowledgeable on the elements of the game that needs to be carried over. The Warzone experience can be in some way duplicated on mobile due to recent progress in mobile developments over the past years.
Adding further confirmation that this job listing really indicates a Warzone port to mobile is it states that the executive producer will have the ability to integrate mobile-specific features which only makes sense when applied on these platforms. This final line would very well indicate that the upcoming Warzone mobile will be a standalone game which means it may not feature cross-play with PC and console players.
Call of Duty Warzone was launched last March 10 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC as a free-to-play extension of Modern Warfare. It will also be integrated with the upcoming Black Ops Cold War this November.
Since then, the game has achieved unbelievable success and now has over 75 million players across the world. A mobile version would aid the game reach more areas worldwide where console and PCs are less accessible.
