Microsoft Confirms Plans for CoD Mobile to be Replaced by Warzone Mobile

Warzone is taking over the world.

The Call of Duty franchise has changed significantly over the past few years, with Warzone becoming a core tenet of the franchise’s success. However, one of the more underappreciated entries didn’t come from Activision directly; aside from publishing duties, it came from TiMi Studio Group and Tencent in the form of the free-to-play Call of Duty: Mobile.

With the acquisition of Activision by Microsoft looming over the gaming world, the latter conglomerate has been expressing all of its plans for Activision, with Call of Duty: Mobile seemingly playing a role in aiding the success of Warzone Mobile. According to Microsoft’s plans, the mobile entry will be replaced by Warzone Mobile when it arrives at some point in 2023.

Call of Duty: Mobile has been a dominant figure in the mobile market, as its debut in 2019 introduced fans to a “greatest hits of Call of Duty” compilation, with the entry sticking to the core identity of CoD in light of recent entries straying from the “typical” formula. CoD: Mobile has racked up impressive numbers, as it reportedly raked in around $31 million in December 2021, encouraging many other mobile ports to try and follow suit.

With the current structure of Warzone dominating the free-to-play market, it seems Microsoft would be looking to capitalize on the Warzone branding and the CoD: Mobile market. That said, it’ll be interesting to see what comes from this, as CoD: Mobile offers multiplayer and a battle royale, while Warzone is strictly a battle royale entry.

Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile is set to release sometime later this year. For more Call of Duty news, check out our related section below.

I love almost every type of video game, and when I'm not playing them, I'm writing about them... a lot. I have too many favorites to list so feel free to ask about them! Long live Ugly Sonic and the Resident Evil 3 Remake (this is a meme btw).
