Activision Blizzard has said it’s currently working on mobile games based on all its top franchises.
During the publisher’s fourth quarter earnings call on Thursday, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick said mobile is now the publisher’s “largest” platform.
“Mobile in fact is now our leading platform,” he said. “We’re hard at work on high quality mobile games for all of our most important franchises.”
Update: An unannounced Crash Bandicoot mobile game from Candy Crush maker King has seemingly leaked, including the screenshots below, ahead of an official announcement.
Original story continues: The company will be hoping to replicate some of the success enjoyed with Call of Duty Mobile, which it said was installed over 150 million times across iOS and Android devices in the three months following its worldwide release on October 1, 2019.
“With the introduction of Call of Duty Mobile, we grew our player base from 40 million to 100 million in less than a year,” said Kotick, “and we expect significant growth in the Call of Duty franchise in 2020 as compared to 2019 as a result of this and another unannounced Call of Duty initiative.”
During the publisher’s earnings call on Thursday, it also said 2020’s unannounced, premium Call of Duty game is already “generating excitement” in playtests.
