Call of Duty: Mobile has been around for a while now, and it's crazy successful. There are even tournaments and world championships with enormous price pools for it. So it's no wonder that Activision also wants to bring their huge battle royale hit Warzone to our smartphones. Games like Fortnite or PUBG have already proven that Battle Royales also work on mobile, and CoD: Mobile already has a BR mode based on Blackout from Black Ops 4.

Warzone Mobile was already announced back in March 2022 – at least there was a short blog entry back then looking for developers to help bring Warzone to mobile. But now the project is officially announced and even soft launched in Australia, so we have collected all the important info about Warzone Mobile here.

Warzone Mobile Release Date

Warzone Mobile was launched in Australia on December 1, 2022, and was recently introduced in Sweden. It was supposed to be released globally sometime in the first half of 2023. However, the expected release date in the App store was just changed to November 1, 2023. We don't know when exactly other countries will be added, and players can already pre-register on Google Play, but this sudden change in the App store is kinda worrying...

Update June 28: Activision CEO Confirms Fall Release Window

On June 28, 2023, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick claimed that Warzone Mobile would be released in Fall, 2023. He said this during the Microsoft FTC trial, so we are quite certain this is indeed true.

  • If you already have a good quality controller that you're comfortable with, then we highly recommend getting a phone clip and playing Warzone Mobile that way.

Warzone Mobile Features

Warzone Mobile features matches for up to 120 players and includes a number of cool new features. Since Warzone Mobile is closely tied to Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2, it shares weapons, operators, and more with those games, and even allow cross-progression between the games. So yes, you will be able to level your Battle Pass across games in Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2.0 and Warzone Mobile.
