Job listing hints towards Call of Duty: Warzone coming to mobile
A now-deleted job posting could indicate that Warzone is headed to mobile devices
Morte has been added to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare ( Infinity Ward )
Activision might have spilt the beans on Call of Duty’s battle royale mode Warzone coming to mobile devices.
According to CoD website Charlie Intel, a job listing which has since been deleted appeared to reveal that Warzone is going to come to mobile.
In the description, the listing used the abbreviation WZM, and it does make sense that this would be a shortened version of “Warzone Mobile”.
To be even more specific, Charlie Intel reported that the listing said: “successful applicants must ‘harvest, adapt and deliver the essential features from Warzone console and PC into their best mobile instantiation'”.

The lowdown on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer mode
The listing was found on Activision’s website and has since been removed, but considering the popularity of Call of Duty: Mobile, it makes sense for the battle royale to wade on over.
Activision first released Warzone this year as a free-to-play addition to Modern Warfare. You don’t even need the base game to play it as it’s a standalone download, but you definitely need the spare hard drive space.
At the moment, Warzone is only available on PC, Xbox One and PS4. This addon alone takes up far and beyond 100gb on PS4 consoles to download, so Activision might have to make some considerable cuts to the overall graphics and assets translating this game to mobile devices.
Call of Duty would be following in the footsteps of Fortnite and PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battleground) in bringing the battle royale experience to mobile.
The mobile version of Call of Duty will be celebrating its first anniversary soon, October 1 to be specific, so perhaps this Warzone mobile announcement will happen then.
It might even be the case that Warzone would be a replacement for Call of Duty: Mobile going forward, or at least be heavily reliant on each other.
