The Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile release date is steadily approaching and its arrival promises to bring all the action and classic, much-loved Call of Duty Warzone features to your mobile phone.
It’s been confirmed that Warzone Mobile will bring a smaller, ‘more focused’ multiplayer mode to the series. How that pans out, we’ll have to wait and see. Revealed back in September, 2022 during the Call of Duty Next Event, Warzone Mobile promises an ambitious 120 players on the map – and these are said to be real live players too. Bots will only be used to improve matchmaking times if needed.
As excitement builds for the new era of Warzone, set in the stunning desert community of Al Mazrah, Warzone Mobile hype is begging to pick up steam.
Instead of Al Mazrah, Activision has opted for Warzone Mobile to return to the much-loved original setting of Verdansk, after a lukewarm reception to the second map, Caldera.
So, what do we know so far? Whilst information about Warzone 2.0 has been shared widely, Warzone Mobile is more under wraps. Here’s everything you need to know.
Warzone Mobile – Latest News
A recent update to Warzone Mobile’s app store page has revealed that the portable battle royale is seemingly slated for release on November 1, 2023. However, this date is yet to be confirmed by Activision or the developers themselves so this may still be subject to change.
Back in March 27, 2023, the CoD: Warzone Mobile Limited Release build became playable in Chile, Norway, and Sweden alongside existing access for players in Australia via Google Play and the App Store on iOS.
All four regions have access to the latest limited release update, that includes a range of gameplay features, performance updates, and the Season 02 Battle Pass. Coined a ‘mid-sized update’, the release chiefly address bug fixes touching on graphics, gameplay, and stability. For more details, check out the full patch notes.
Unfortunately, the worldwide launch currently doesn’t have a specified date yet but is most likely planned for 2023.
As mentioned prior, from the very brief teaser trailer showcased at the COD Next Event, Warzone Mobile will be set in Verdansk.
Since then, Call of Duty did reveal the pre registration reward for 25 million sign-ups. We now know it’s an Operator – the one and only, Ghost. Pre-registrations have also surged past the 35 million mark, unlocking Shoot House multiplayer mode, the very same version from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, for worldwide launch.
Cross-progression has also been confirmed to be a part of Warzone Mobile. The website for the game’s developer went live a few days before the announcement.
Warzone Mobile can also be pre-ordered on the App Store and Android Marketplace. There is no word yet on system requirements and what mobile phone you’ll need to power the game. However, Activision has shared minimum specs for the Limited Release, which are likely to carry over to the full worldwide launch. These are as follows:
- Apple: iPhone 8+ or better
- Android: Adreno 618 or better
- Apple Memory: 4GB RAM or better
- Android Memory: 6GB RAM or better
Warzone Mobile – Predicted Release Date
The Warzone Mobile release date is seemingly slated for November 1, 2023 according to the game’s updated app store page. It’s worth noting, though, that this time frame is yet to be confirmed by Activision so it may still end up changing in the future.
Luckily, those living in a few select countries can now access the miniature battle royale offering. A limited release of CoD: Warzone Mobile is now live in Australia, Sweden, Chile, and Norway on Google Play and iOS.
As of now, the exact release date is still up in the air as we are yet to get a confirmation from Activision and we didn’t get a full answer at the COD NEXT Event either. With that said, we do still expect the game to become available at some point towards the latter part of 2023, so fingers crossed that the game doesn’t suffer any significant delays from now until then.
When Does Warzone Mobile Come Out?
As we said above, we are still unsure on the exact launch window for Warzone Mobile as Activision hasn’t confirmed the November 1, 2023 date provided yet. However, we think we could be nearing a release date. The regional testing of Warzone mobile has now expanded to new countries including Sweden, Norway and Chile. Hopefully a few other key regions will be next.
Warzone Mobile Map – What We Know So Far
Activision confirmed that Warzone Mobile will indeed be taking place on Verdansk, the fan-favorite location from the original Warzone. It’ll even include the Gulag for players to fight for their chance to be brought back into the battle when eliminated.
The game is confirmed to support 120 players – so the map will need to be large enough to give them all room to breathe whilst at the same time never feeling empty.
The team know the task they’ve got ahead of themselves though – responding to fans on YouTube, the official account said “We have been thinking about how best to optimize from the very beginning!”
“It is a huge task though, especially with how massive Verdansk is and how high quality Modern Warfare and Warzone models are. Hopefully we’ll have a wide range of devices we can support by the time we get to our full launch.”
That’s all we know so far about Warzone Mobile, but we’ll keep our ears to the ground if any new information drops.
