Activision is hiring for a new mobile FPS
For anyone with even an inkling of working in the videogame industry, this would be an incredible opportunity! Activision Blizzard is one of the largest and most profitable entertainment companies bar-none. Activision Blizzard is currently a member of the S&P 500, which means that they are one of the U.S 500 largest companies. They have also been recognized by Fortune as one of the top 100 companies to work for in the US!
While their headquarters are in Santa Monica, California, they still have multiple locations around the world. Also, while everyone is currently working remotely due to the coronavirus, things would be really surprising if there is cross-continental cooperation!
Activision had earlier hinted at COD Warzone coming for mobile devices!
Back in 2020, Activision had listed a job posting just like this. The job posting hinted towards COD Warzone coming to mobile devices in the future. While it was up, it indicated that Activision was looking for an executive producer, features to work on a new Call Of Duty title called WZM. This, presumably, is the codename for Warzone Mobile – and a fairly unimaginative one at that. And now, as Activision has announced multiple job positions for their news FPS game, there are some speculations brewing up that this might be a step forward towards launching the mobile version of the much popular title Call of Duty Warzone.
