The launch date applies to all countries where Google Play and App Store are supported with the exceptions of mainland China, Vietnam and Belgium.
Several multiplayer modes will be available at launch, while the game’s battle royale mode will support up to 100 players, with matches set on a map designed exclusively for the mobile title.
Activision says additional modes and content, time-limited events and playlists will be added regularly.
“We are delivering the definitive, first-person action experience on mobile with signature Call of Duty gameplay in the palms of your hands,” said Chris Plummer, VP of mobile at Activision.
“We are bringing together some of the best the franchise has to offer, including Modern Warfare maps like Crash and Crossfire, Black Ops maps like Nuketown and Hijacked, and many more, into one epic title. We’ve tested the game extensively in select territories and the feedback we’ve received has helped us refine the experience for October 1.”
