Call of Duty Coming To Mobile!
Staying on the mobile phone theme, Activision announced a partnership with Chinese internet giant Tencent overnight, to bring a new Call of Duty game to mobile.
Activision also said it will not be porting an existing title but rather creating a brand new offering.
The new Call of Duty mobile game is set to launch “in the coming months” but will only be available in China to begin with.
This isn’t Activision’s first venture into mobile gaming with Call of Duty: Heroes already available.
While we’re on the subject of CoD – don’t forget the Days of Summer event is now live with an exclusive addition for PS4.
