Activision is working on a new Call of Duty game for mobile phones. The publisher has recently acquired The Respawnables developer Digital Legends to develop the next Call of Duty mobile title. The first official Call of Duty game for smartphones, Call of Duty: Mobile, is incredibly popular on both Android and iOS devices. As Call of Duty: Mobile had launched in October 2019, it’s about time players get a new Call of Duty experience on smartphones. Activision’s approach for mobile versions of Call of Duty is much different compared to its PC and console counterparts. Both PC and console get a new Call of Duty game every year, with Call of Duty: Vanguard launching on November 5, 2021.
