Call of Duty: Mobile (COD:M) was developed by TiMi Studios and published by Activision back in October 2019. The free-to-play first person shooter are available on Android, iOS and iPadOS.

When Microsoft tried to acquire Activision back in January 2022, the giant software company were met with strong oppositions from other big tech companies, particularly Sony, because they fear Microsoft will have a monopoly on video games industry. Until today, they are still trying to complete the merger in the courtrooms.

Engadget reports that several interesting pieces of information are emerging from documents being submitted to regulatory bodies. One of the most recent updates pertains to the upcoming plans for Call of Duty on mobile, which is quite fascinating.

Microsoft has reportedly stated in written correspondence with the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) in the UK that the popular mobile game COD:M will eventually be phased out, excluding China, with the anticipated release of Warzone Mobile.

The document also stated that Warzone Mobile is going to be release later this year. This is a rather strange turn of event as COD:M has battle royale mode in the game, plus zombie and other multiplayer game modes. Warzone Mobile seems to be focusing more on battle royale and with less emphasis on traditional multiplayer modes.

But, before you panic after reading that tweet, Microsoft isn’t going to phase out COD:M immediately because in the document, Microsoft said “a significant portion of Activision’s value for Microsoft’s mobile strategy comes from native mobile versions of its popular console and PC games such as Call of Duty: Mobile, Diablo Immortal, and the upcoming Warzone Mobile and Warcraft Arclight Rumble.

As you can see, COD:M is still very important to Microsoft and their mobile gaming strategy. So, we can expect COD:M to stick around for quite some time even after the launched of Warzone Mobile.

But, the specific implications for players and their progress in COD:M are unclear with regards to the phasing out of the game. It remains to be seen what will happen to the items, cosmetics and achievements that players have unlocked and accumulated in the game.

Further details regarding the transition from COD:M to Warzone Mobile are yet to be announced.
