Call of Duty: Mobile reaches one billion hours played monthly
Call of Duty: Mobile continues to see incredible success since it’s launch one year ago on October 1, 2019.
A new report from analytical firm App Annie says that Call of Duty: Mobile has now surpassed one billion hours played by users per month at its peak.
The game launched originally on October 1, 2020, bringing the best of Modern Warfare and Black Ops universes together for a new mobile experience. The mobile game has allowed Activision to reach new audiences in regions where consoles and PC gaming are not as popular, like in Asia.
“The success of Call of Duty: Mobile reflects the combination of bringing one of the world’s most beloved entertainment IPs to mobile devices that’s just as visceral and authentic as the console or PC versions,” said Activision vice president of mobile Chris Plummer.
Activision is using its learnings from Call of Duty: Mobile to apply it to more franchises. The game has been having monthly content updates and new Seasons.
“In our first year, we’ve reached existing fans of this great franchise in new ways, while also reaching new fans from all over the world. Since launch, we’ve committed ourselves to constantly bringing fresh new content, adding new modes and constantly improving the experience for our players.
“There’s an incredible amount of content that we’ve added, and we’re only getting started.”
