Candy Crush Dev Working On New Call Of Duty Game For Mobile

King is making a new Call of Duty game for mobile.


Candy Crush developer King is working on a new Call of Duty game, it seems. A recently discovered job ad is looking for a level designer to work on an "exciting new project" out of the studio's office in Stockholm, Sweden. The game is being development in collaboration with Activision Blizzard, which acquired King for an incredible $5.9 billion back in 2015.

"The aim is to create a Call of Duty experience on mobile, while also breaking new ground for mobile and redefining the genre," reads a line from the ad. "The approach and ambition is to be fresh, social, and highly accessible, while providing a very authentic game experience."

A desirable candidate will have experience working in the shooter space, which suggests--not surprisingly--that King's game will be a shooter of sorts. The job ad also states that you have a better shot at getting the job if you have "some understanding of the casual and midcore markets." You can see the full job ad here (via Game Informer).

There are at least two other job ads at King related to Call of Duty; the others call for a senior network engineer and a senior tools developer.

Just a few weeks ago, Activision Publishing president Coddy Johnson teased that the company might be investing more heavily in the mobile space after seeing the huge success of Fortnite, particularly on mobile.

Activision has already released multiple Call of Duty games for mobile, one of the most recent of which is Call of Duty: Heroes. A 3D strategy game, Heroes lets you control heroes from Call of Duty games such as Call of Duty: WWII and Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

The next mainline Call of Duty game is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which comes out in October. Activision will officially reveal the game on May 17 during a livestream event, so keep checking back with GameSpot for lots more on the shooter.
