Activision is quietly opening a new internal studio, for which it is looking for the first employees through advertisements. The positions of producer, QA manager, engine programmer, system designer, chief graphic officer and several others will be opened, who together will form the Activision Mobile axis. As the name suggests, the focus of the new studio will be mobile games, and as advertised, the ambitions are the highest. Activision Mobile will be working on a new AAA game from the Call of Duty series, which could potentially build on the current Call of Duty Mobile and move the series on mobile phones into a new era. The information goes hand in hand with the cancellation of Call of Duty Online in China and the effort to compensate players in the area of the current mobile Call of Duty. The move was intended to move existing Call of Duty Online players to Call of Duty Mobile and prepare the community for the full sequel or battle royale version.
In any case, the as yet unannounced Activision Mobile studio will strive for the best games, which will also require cooperation with other studios under a common roof.

The new studio should be located in Santa Monica, but according to the notes, the physical location probably does not matter. Activision decided to continue the set culture of in-house work that developers had moved to because of the coronavirus pandemic, and distant interviews should also take place. However, the advertisements do not state how long this situation will last, or whether it will be necessary to go to work in person, even if all measures relax. In any case, the as yet unannounced Activision Mobile studio will strive for the best games, which will also require cooperation with other studios under a common roof. In addition, there are mentions of live-service elements in the advertisements, which, however, is even more expected with regard to mobile titles than for titles for PCs and consoles.
Starting your own studio is not surprising, considering that the mobile gaming segment was identified last year by Activision President Bobby Kotick as largest platformfor which the company develops games. In addition, it has previously been speculated that Activision will want to work on the mobile version of the battle royale Warzone itself, and it is most likely that instead of replacing it, it is still very executive Call of Duty Mobile will take place at the battle ryoale. However, no further information is available at this time.
