Warzone Mobile is Coming in 2023, Here’s What We Know
On September 15th, Activision revealed Call of Duty Warzone Mobile at the COD: NEXT event. Now, fans are eagerly awaiting the deployment of the mobile-based battle royale epic, which is due to drop in 2023. Here’s everything we know about Warzone Mobile in one snapshot breakdown.
Warzone Mobile Takes Us Back To Verdansk
For the first time in more than a year, players will be dropping back into Verdansk, the iconic map that debuted at the heart of Call of Duty Warzone in March 2020. It’s an exciting premise that is sure to bring in millions of users simply seeking a touch of nostalgia.
Reportedly, several studios have combined their developmental talents, working with Activision to create what is supposed to be quite a robust, enjoyable mobile gaming experience. This notable roster includes the likes of Beenox, responsible for the creation of the updated Rebirth Island in Call of Duty Warzone.
When Will Warzone Mobile Be Released?
At present, there’s no solid release date for Call of Duty Warzone Mobile, but it will drop in 2023. If we had to hazard a guess, we’d say that it’ll drop in conjunction with a fresh season of Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2, as Activision has sought to create a ‘unified’ Call of Duty ecosystem.
There are expectations that the current Warzone 2 and MW2 season will end at the beginning of February 2023, and as pre-registration is now open for Warzone Mobile, that seems like a fair enough distance away that a beta could be slotted in before then.
Recently, it was revealed that Warzone 2 hit the 25 million player count in just five days, so it stands to reason that Activision won’t hang around to deploy Warzone Mobile – it’ll want to capitalise on that popularity.
What Else Do We Know About Warzone Mobile?
According to information confirmed by Activision, Call of Duty Warzone Mobile will feature cross-progression mechanics with both Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. There’s no crossplay feature in place, but weapons, operators, and cosmetic content – including unlocks from the battle pass – should pull across from title to title.
At the moment, there are no suggestions that the DMZ, Warzone 2’s extraction shooter mode, will make an appearance on mobile devices, despite already proving itself a fan favourite mode.
It was also revealed by Activision that Call of Duty Warzone Mobile won’t be just battle royale-based combat. There will also be multiplayer modes coming to the platform, giving players the opportunity to explore the game and sharpen their skills in modes fuelled by the ability to respawn instantly in-game.
You can pre-register for Call of Duty Warzone Mobile now. Activision has outlined global milestones, and if enough players register, they’ll all unlock a wealth of bonuses in-game.
