Activision has announced that it is currently developing a brand new record in the Call of Duty franchise. Specifically, this title is one that will be developed by the studio Digital Legends, which is a company that Activision revealed this week that it had now formally acquired. However, instead of this new title being part of the annual Call of Duty series coming to consoles and PC, Digital Legends is instead a new game coming to mobile platforms.
Detailed in a recent press release, Activision told more about their acquisition of Digital Legends and what it expects from the company in the future. “This is an incredible team of development professionals at Digital Legends, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to the Activision team,” Activision President Rob Kostich said of the move. “This is a big step forward as we continue to build additional world-class development resources with a focus on creating exciting and innovative content for our players.”
As a whole, it’s not so surprising to see Activision continue to double the Call of Duty when it comes to mobile space. Its current offer on mobile, Call of Duty: Mobile, is by far the largest Call of Duty game ever made and has surpassed 500 million downloads over its lifetime.
Whatever this new Call of Duty game ends up being, it will also continue to sit only with the titles that Activision releases for other gaming platforms. Specifically, this year’s rate in Call of Duty: Vanguard is ready to be launched in a week and will bring players back to the battlefields of World War II. Conversely, rumors and reports have indicated that next year’s mainline game will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which is a successor to 2019 Modern warfare restart.
