Call of Duty: Mobile, Activision’s AAA shooter title that has dominated the FPS sphere on mobile for the past few years, has now vanished off the iOS App Store without a trace as users all across the globe are reporting the same thing and there’s no official word yet, neither was there any previous intimation regarding this. The game is still available on the Google Play Store.
UPDATE: The game is now back to the app store and Activision has already clarified on the same.
Temporary removal likely due to an error on Activision’s End
The game cannot be downloaded or even found anymore as going to the link for the game doesn’t lead to a page. There’s quite a lot of doubt and speculation floating around although the general consensus right now states that it’s probably an error on the publisher’s part and would be fixed soon, presenting no cause for concern.
However, users in regions like India and Bangladesh faced a sense of Deja Vu as they feared the worst. In the past, the Indian government ordered the removal of PUBG Mobile and placed a ban on it, a fate shared later by Free Fire and then by PUBGM’s replacement in the country, BGMI.
Activision is aware of the issue and is working to fix it as soon as possible
These titles also were taken off app markers without much of a warning, leading players in the country to fear the worst, although just for the record, it must be made clear that Call of Duty: Mobile shouldn’t face any issues over its relations to Tencent, simply because they don’t have any after parting ways in 2020.
Bangladesh meanwhile, had a situation where the High Court called for the banning of Free Fire and PUBG Mobile, stating that these games were the reason for “moral and social degradation”.
All that being said, there really seems to be no reason for players to be worried about the game going down because it will probably be up and running soon. As of now, Activision has said that they are aware of this issue and are working on how to fix this. Very soon, they will come up with a solution.
