Call of Duty Warzone ‘coming to your iPhone and Android’ in gaming war on Fortnite

CALL of Duty’s smash hit spin-off game Warzone may soon be coming to mobile.

A job listing on US game publisher Activision’s website hints the hugely popular battle royale shooter will get its own Android and iPhone apps.

The post on Activision’s career page was spotted on Monday by Call of Duty news site Charlie Intel. It has since been removed.

According to a screenshot of the listing, Activision was looking for an Executive Producer for “WZM”, which appears to be code for Warzone Mobile. The post mentioned Warzone multiple times.

It said the successful candidate would work on a “new mobile FPS in the Call of Duty Franchise.”

Theyt would “harvest, adapt and deliver the essential features from Warzone console and PC into their best mobile instantiation.”

The listing continued: “You will own product framing and player experience of a new AAA mobile FPS in the Call of Duty franchise.”

The job is located in Santa Monica, California, and unsurprisingly falls under Activision’s mobile department.

Warzone has proved a huge hit since it launched in March but is currently only available on console and PC.

Like many recent games, its popularity is in part thanks to lockdowns sparked by the coronavirus pandemic pushing people to their sofas.

It’s not clear if Activision removed the listing because it leaked or because the company has filled the role.

Activision declined a request for comment.

It should come as no surprise that the firm is pushing for a mobile version of Warzone.

Battle royale game Fortnite, arguably Warzone’s biggest competitor, has an Android and iOS app.

What is Fortnite, anyway?

FORTNITE is an online video game played by up to 250 million people across the world.

In it, 100 players compete on their own or with a small group of pals to grab weapons, gather resources and build defences, before fighting it out to be the last man (or team) standing.

Matches take about 20 minutes, and you can drop into a new game within seconds of your previous one finishing.

It’s bright, it’s cartoony and it’s fiendishly compelling.

Skill is rewarded but luck also plays a huge role, meaning no two games are ever the same and everyone feels like they have a chance of winning.

Fortnite has also made its developer billions.

In Europe it’s rated 12+, meaning it’s suitable for those aged 12 and up.

The battle royale mode is free to play, but there is also a story-driven single player and co-op mode called Save The World that players have to pay for.

Pop culture crossover events are very common because of the game’s huge audience.

These involve players being able to buy themed outfits for the movie, TV show or brand, as well as getting some themed activities in-game to do too.

These might be new places to explore, new challenges to complete to win themed accessories, or new game modes that are loosely related to the theme of whatever is being crossed over with.

A huge portion of the game’s 250million users play it exclusively on mobile. Many may not own a console at all.

Activision’s timing is also notable as Fortnite maker Epic Games is currently embroiled in a bitter legal battle with Apple.

Apple has banned the Fortnite app from its App Store as part of a standoff over the commissioning fee it charges app developers like Epic.

Gamers can’t download Fortnite from the App Store and likely won’t be able to for some time – the perfect opportunity for a rival game to plug the gap.

Call of Duty Warzone is getting a graphics update for the next-gen consoles.

Call of Duty recently banned 50,000 Warzone players for cheating.

And here are some Warzone Plunder tips revealed by Pro gamer Spratt.
