Candy Crush Developer Working On Call of Duty Mobile Title
The next big Call of Duty game on mobile is coming from Candy Crush makers?
It’s quite interesting to hear that the development team King is taking on a Call of Duty title for the mobile platform. If you’re unfamiliar with the development studio, these are the developers behind the highly successful Candy Crush Saga, though their next title release will be based on the Call of Duty franchise.
The video game doesn’t have any name attached to it yet nor has there been any official announcement regarding the title. Instead, the internet took notice over a recruitment page that states that the developers are looking to create a Call of Duty experience on the mobile platform.
While the Call of Duty franchise has been taking a step back towards their roots with the latest upcoming installment, it will be interesting to see what era the mobile title takes after along with how it will fit into a specific genre.
“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.”
Regardless, while a developer that is known for Candy Crush is working on the video game it doesn’t come to much surprise. This development studio was already purchased by Activision back in 2015 for well over a billion dollars.
We’re likely not going to see this video game pop up anytime soon as there is talk of prototyping the video game which means the developers may not have a clear vision as to what their end goal may be with the title.
