After taking the world of mobile gaming by storm with hits like Candy Crush Saga and Bubble Witch Saga, Stolkholm-based King is now working on a mobile spin-off for Activision Blizzard’s celebrated FPS franchise Call of Duty.
Since last year, speculations have been high and the new job listings on the company’s site further says that King was acquired by Activision Blizzard in 2015 in a deal of $5.9 billion.
Details about the project are still not available as the company is still prototyping the phase of development.
“We are a new King team, located in Stockholm, Sweden, and we’re working on an exciting new project. The team is adapting one of the most iconic game franchises of all-time: Call of Duty, to become a mobile experience. This is a rare and exciting opportunity. 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 also breaking new ground for mobile and redefining the genre.
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,” says the company’s website.
Even though Activision Blizzard has in the past released some mobile titles on the franchise like Call of Duty: Strike Team, Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies, it is anybody’s guess to see King’s take on it.
