Activision has shared job listings for various roles in engineering, artists, production, and product, as part of Call of Duty Warzone mobile development. A leaker had previously revealed that Activision was looking for an Executive Producer for Warzone mobile. As the publisher is already looking for talent in multiple roles, the development on Warzone mobile seems to be in the early stages.
Activision said, “This large-scale, battle royale experience is being built natively for mobile with cutting-edge technology designed to entertain gamers around the world for many years to come.” Activision is hiring for multiple roles across internal studios such as Beenox, Solid State Studios, Demonware, and Digital Legends. Activision had acquired The Respawnables developer Digital Legends to develop a new Call of Duty mobile game, which is now confirmed to be Warzone mobile.

That’s by far our biggest opportunity.” Since mobile gaming has a huge player base, it makes sense for Activision to invest in adapting establish franchises for mobile. Besides Call of Duty, Activision is expected to bring Warcraft and Diablo: Immortal to Android and iOS later this year. The publisher is expected to announce more details regarding Warzone mobile, Warcraft, and Diablo: Immortal in the coming months.
