At the beginning of September, Activision went public to inform that Call of Duty Warzone Mobile would be released in 2022. But during the CODNEXT event, the game's producer commented that the game will only arrive in 2023.

The announcement may have taken the marketing team by surprise, as it came straight from the game's producer, Chris Plummer, at the CODNEXT event. Check out the snippet below:

Let's face it, COD Warzone Mobile is "raw"

After all the hype, screaming and hysteria with the announcement and gameplays of Warzone Mobile, it's time to analyze things more calmly.

The game is "raw", it seems that there is still a lot to be done. But it's going in the right direction!

At the event, the test devices were mostly iPhone 13 Pro Max, one of the most powerful gaming smartphones today.

We don't know if it was out of caution, or because the game is like that, but the game seemed to be running at a setting and resolution below 1080p.

Even though it's an old version, producer Chris Plummer's speech at the event suggests that it might not be the case. In addition to going against what Activision itself had announced.

And as one of the streamers commented at the event, they were informed that this is an alpha version, that is, one of the first versions of the game.



There is indeed a rush to launch the game, but at the same time, it is worth remembering that the mobile shooter market is very competitive. Games like Tencent's Arena Breakout look much prettier and much better made and have been waiting for a release window for years.



Warzone Mobile is then for 2023 and I expect Activision to optimize the game a lot, as it looks pretty “heavy”.
