A Warzone Mobile battle royale game has been rumored for months, and finally Call of Duty developers have responded to the speculation, confirming that a title called “Project Aurora” is in development.
A handheld version of Warzone has been a mainstay of the CoD rumor mill in 2022, with competitors BR Fortnite and Apex Legends already competing with CoD Mobile.
Activision has confirmed CoD Mobile as one of its biggest growth areas in terms of its player base, previously stating that there are almost as many Call of Duty players playing on smartphones as there are on consoles and PC. On March 10, they also indicated that a Warzone Mobile offering was in the pipeline.
On May 11, they doubled down on the claim with the announcement of “Project Aurora” – a codenamed shooter title suspected by members of the community is becoming a Warzone spinoff.
