New Call Of Duty Mobile Game In Production By Candy Crush Creator

"Breaking new ground"

27 Comments

The Call of Duty franchise is getting a new mobile adaptation from one of the world's most iconic mobile games studios. King, first famous for creating Candy Crush and now run by Call of Duty owner Activision Blizzard, is currently working on the new mobile game.

"Our challenge as a team is to create a Call of Duty experience on mobile that will strive to transform the best console experience fans know and love, while breaking new ground for mobile and redefining the genre," reads its recruiting website.

There are no specific details yet on how the game will work or what it will look like. All we can see are the many job postings for the Stockholm-based studio (including art director). It is, however, revealing some of its intention with the series.

"Our approach and ambition is to be fresh, social, and highly accessible, while providing a very authentic game experience. The team will prototype extensively, have the freedom to think outside the box, and be encouraged to stretch their expertise in ways to create surprising results," the site says.

"We’re a lean pack of developers, designers, and artists, with a shared goal and shared understanding of what we're striving to build: a transformative and awesome Call of Duty experience on mobile that fans will want to play for years."

While King promises a "transformative" mobile experience for Call of Duty fans, it's far from the first mobile game in the series. There are several mobile COD games available right now; but if its success with Candy Crush is any indication, King's Call of Duty entry into the franchise is bound to stand out for the pack.

Meanwhile, Activision Blizzard has the film world in its sights too. The company is planning a Marvel-style extended film universe for the Call of Duty series, with multiple scripts already in the works. The first Call of Duty move could be in theaters as soon as next year.

@7tizz: @7tizz: Actually Tizz microtransactions in games like candy crush are specifically designed to wear down on people mentally. It's all about breaking a person down to get them to pay the developer more money.

Also there is a difference between putting out a product to make money off of and designing something to attack people psychologically to wring out as much cash as possible.

@7tizz: Are YOU for real? That's your best retort? So what? Sweet.

Also I never said shut down the video game industry, don't know where you even pulled that out of.

No it is not forcing someone to do it, but it IS designed to f**k with people psychologically to push them as hard as possible to spend more and more money. I mean f**k me for not liking that right?

Anyways good talk tizz, glad to see someone is willing to defend shitty business practices that in no way benefit the consumers and is a person who is apparently more than happy to allow companies to walk all over them. Anyways have fun with Call of Duty Sagas and make sure to buy the $100 pack of premium currency every couple of hours, gotta make sure King knows it can sponge you.

@7tizz: True, but if you wanted to advance past a certain point, you either needed to pay or join FB and hope your FB friends are also playing the game. I detest FB, and refused to pay to play just because the only free option involved FB.

The only thing worse than your run-of-the-mill mobile game is one that pretends it's more than just a mobile game.
