CoD fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Warzone Mobile, but a change to the game’s release date on the App Store has hinted that they may have to wait a little longer.

Following the success of both Warzone and Warzone 2, as well as the ever-popular CoD Mobile, it was no surprise when Activision announced that they would be bringing the battle royale to mobile devices with Warzone Mobile.

The new title will mark the return of the iconic Verdansk map from the original Warzone, while leaks have hinted that the fan-favorite Rebirth Island will also make an appearance.

Fans eager to hop into Warzone Mobile can pre-register their interest and testing has already begun in some regions, but an update to the game’s App Store page has suggested that a full worldwide release might be further away than first hoped.

Although the devs have only confirmed that Warzone Mobile will arrive in 2023, the Apple App Store had an expected release date of May 15. However, on May 9, less than a week before the predicted date rolled around, the page updated to read November 1.

While the original May 15 date was likely just a placeholder, many players will likely be disappointed that they will have to wait until later in the year to get their hands on Warzone Mobile.

As announced way back in May 2022, the regional testing phase is designed to “improve tuning, stress test matches, identify and fix bugs, as well as collect feedback and insights on all aspects of the game as new features come online.”

Testing recently expanded out into Sweden, Norway, and Chile, but it’s unclear at this time if feedback on the issues mentioned above played any part in the release date being pushed back.

Luckily, fans can still get their Call of Duty fix through CoD Mobile, which is currently in Season 4 and will continue to be supported once Warzone Mobile arrives.
