Activision took a deep step into the battle royale genre when it launched Call of Duty: Warzone, and the game was met with a hell of a lot more success than the last COD battle royal saw. Within weeks the number of players skyrocketed, and Warzone was competing with games like Fortnite, PUBG, and even Apex Legends. Warzone is lacking one big thing, though, and that’s a port for mobile devices, but all of that could change very soon, and we now have proof that Activision is – at the very least – taking the idea into consideration.
A new job listing that has since been removed, appeared on Activision’s website. The job listing said it was looking for someone to work on “WZM” – which is easy to assume is an abbreviation for Warzone Mobile – who would “harvest, adapt, and deliver the essential features from Warzone console and PC into their best mobile instantiation.” This person would also “serve as the primary point of contact on Warzone Mobile leadership team for clarity and decisions on user-facing features, UX, and overall quality.”
This is probably the smartest move that Activision can make. We know that Call of Duty Mobile has been impressively successful, and a mobile port of Warzone would open the door for new Warzone players – specifically those who want to play on mobile – to jump into the fray. The downside is that if Activision is currently looking for someone to , essentially, lead the team, it might not be released on Android or IOS for at least a year if not more.
