After testing the game's mobile version in China last year, Activision officially confirms the Call of Duty: Mobile during the Unity keynote presentation at this year's Game Developer Conference.
The new Call of Duty for iOS and Android is a free-to-play game made in partnership with Chinese mobile game publisher Tencent.

Call of Duty: Mobile — built on the Unity Engine — promises the similar level of performance that's seen on the game's PS3 and Xbox 360 version. According to an Activision representative, the mobile version will include elements from Call of Duty: Black Ops and Modern Warfare.
"We are delivering the definitive, first-person action experience in a new mobile title with incredible graphics and visceral Call of Duty gameplay," Chris Plummer, Activision's VP for mobile, said in a statement.
"Together with the amazing team at Tencent, we're bringing together a collection of the most beloved maps, competitive modes, familiar characters, and signature weapons from across this storied franchise into one epic experience for the first time on mobile."
Competitive game modes, which include search-and-destroy, a 10-player free-for-all combat, and deathmatch, will be available along with familiar iconic maps such as Nuketown, Crash, and Hijacked.
Tencent's very own Timi studio, which is also behind PUBG Mobile, handles the development side for Call of Duty: Mobile.
Call of Duty: Mobile will be available on both Android and iOS devices. Activision also announced a pre-launch beta test in select regions including North and South America and Europe.
As of writing, there's no definitive date on when the game will be released for everyone, but those who are interested to try out the game's public beta can pre-register in Call of Duty: Mobile's official site. Beta testing will start later this summer.
