In an interview with Variety late this week, the CEO of King Games talked ad revenue, loot boxes and teased the mobile version of Call of Duty.
It’s still early, Riccardo Zacconi cautioned, but the development of a mobile version of “Call of Duty” is underway and ready to put King in the hard core gaming business. The first hint of a mobile “Call of Duty” came last April following Activision’s acquisition of King, with the general plan to bring Activision games to mobile devices.
Then Gamezone found a job posting for team of developers working out of Stockholm, Sweden, to move Call of Duty to mobile and, “…create a Call of Duty experience on mobile that will strive to transform the best console experience fans know and love, whiel also breaking new ground for mobile and redefining the genre.”
This brief comment from Zacconi is the latest update, meaning the “Call of Duty” shift to mobile is being actively developed.

“It’s probably too early to say (what the game will be), but it won’t be a match three game,” he said.
He wouldn’t say much beyond that, but “Call of Duty” fans can rest assured, it’s in the works.
