Activision Vice President of Mobile Chris Plummer sat down with HypeBeast to talk about the newly released Call of Duty: Mobile game, a free to play experience on both iOS and Android.

The new mobile game is off to a great start for the company with analytical firms stating the game has seen well over 20 million downloads and over $2 million in generated revenue.

Activision VP Plummer said in the interview with HypeBeast that they are still looking at the possibility of controller support in Call of Duty: Mobile, and that the settings that were available for the game prior to launch was part of the public beta testing of such feature.

In terms of peripherals, we are looking at the possibility and have already been testing controller support with a portion of our live audience. It is very important to us that we maintain fair balance across the game.

Plummer said that they want to ensure the game and matchmaking will remain fair and balanced. He said that if they do have controller support, they may implement separate matchmaking pool just for controller players to play against each other.

One example of this is we have separate lobbies in Battle Royale for first-person perspective and third-person perspective players since you have the option to choose either in Battle Royale. We may implement a similar solution for players using controllers if needed.

Activision VP did not provide any indication as to when they plan to add the controller support into the game or if the testing of the feature went well during the game’s closed testing alpha and betas.
