Call of Duty: Mobile, one of Activision’s great successes on mobile
Activision’s foray into the mobile gaming industry wasn’t risky, but it was effective. Its most important intellectual property as a media license, Call of Duty, was chosen for the premiere of Call of Duty: Mobile in October 2019, a title developed by TiMi Studios, a subsidiary of the Chinese giant Tencent. The success was superlative from the first moment: good control sensations, a multitude of content, maps, rotations, seasons and a technical section up to the task.
The playable and creative approach that this new Call of Duty for smartphones will have is unknown; It is hoped that in the near future we will have more information and a formal announcement of the parties involved in the production.
Call of Duty: Mobile is available in format free to play (free download with a business model based on in-app purchases) on iOS and Android devices.
