CoD: Mobile has been extremely successful, and now Activision are developing a mobile version of Warzone. Here’s everything we know about it, including its studios, map, and early launch.

Activision have dominated the first-person shooter market with their Call of Duty games. Titles like Vanguard were a success, and Modern Warfare 2 as well as Warzone 2 have added to the massive fanbase.

Here’s everything we know about Call of Duty Warzone: Mobile so far.

Thanks to the Call of Duty Next event we know that Warzone Mobile is set to launch worldwide in 2023. Activision confirmed on March 10 that the game is in development, but they’ve not provided the exact release date yet.

Prior to the official announcement of the game, a few leaks suggested that the handheld battle royale game could see a release as early as 2022. However, this estimate was slightly wide of the mark as Activision revealed a 2023 global release.

Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile early launch

Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile had a limited release in Australia on November 30 and is now available there on Google Play with the iOS release coming soon to the Apple App Store.

Activision confirmed that the worldwide release is still planned for 2023, so players in other regions will need to wait for a bit before they can get their hands on Warzone Mobile,

Activision have gathered several notable gaming studios and teams to work on the project. Solid State Studios (Activision’s new internal mobile team), Digital Legends, Beenox, Activision Shanghai, and Demonware will all come together to develop Warzone Mobile.

Along with the very first Warzone Mobile announcement, Activision also declared that they would be hiring individuals to work on the project.

Activision aimed to hire talented individuals to help work on the game. “From production roles to engineering, design, art, marketing, and more, we’re looking for game-makers, passionate fans, and genuinely awesome people to join our diverse team, inspired to deliver the next world-class mobile gaming experience to fans,” they announced.

Will Warzone Mobile have shared progression with Warzone 2?

Warzone Mobile Operators

Activision confirmed that Warzone Mobile will feature shared progression with Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0. In an attempt to deliver a unified Call of Duty experience, Activision are delivering what they call cross-progression to improve the connectivity between titles.

Many of the same weapons and Operators will feature across all three titles, which simplifies the shared progression concept. In addition, you’ll be able to advance a unified Battle Pass across Warzone Mobile, Modern Warfare 2, and Warzone 2.0.

One example that the Call of Duty team has provided is the scenario of unlocking a new weapon in Modern Warfare 2 and it appear directly on Warzone Mobile shortly after.

The enhanced connectivity across the three games will also simplify finding games with your friends as your lists and chat channels will unify.

After it was hinted at in a Warzone Mobile teaser trailer, Activision confirmed that Warzone Mobile players will be heading to Verdansk. Players will be able to drop into the Verdansk map on Warzone Mobile at launch.

All Verdansk’s classic POIs including Downton, SuperStore, and Dam will be returning in the faithful transition to mobile. Players will also run into the classic Buy Stations, Gulag, and Contracts across Verdansk. This is great for players who have been calling for the map to return.
