We have already seen the wave of console games such as Fortnite and PUBG dominating the mobile gaming space, and now it seems like other big players are also gearing up to grab a piece of the pie.
Activision has now launched the pre-registrations of its popular title Call of Duty on iOS and Android. The game that is called Call of Duty: Mobile will be free-to-play and be available in India at the beginning, with roll outs in other regions planned for the coming months. Call of Duty: Mobile that features a similar gameplay that Call of Duty players are familiar with on the console and PC has been developed with the help of Tencent China, the juggernaut tech company that has also helped PUBG Corp in the development of PUBG Mobile.

Users will be able to play these modes on familiar maps including Nuketown and Hijacked.
