Call of Duty: Mobile, the latest installment in the popular franchise, has taken the world by storm, reaching 35 million downloads in just 4 days.

The new mobile game offers two main game types: battle royale, which features the popular 100-player survival mode, and traditional multiplayer, with 5v5 team-based combat. Additionally, fan favorites like Zombies and new variants like sniper vs sniper are making an appearance.
While there are microtransactions in CoD: Mobile, already reportedly gathering $2 million in revenue, it doesn’t impact the competitive gameplay.
CoD: Mobile was seemingly designed to be a walk down memory lane prior to the much-anticipated launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which will be released on October 25. Most of the guns come from previous Modern Warfare and Black Ops installments and the game includes a number of fan-favorite maps like Nuketown, in addition to iconic characters like John Price and Simon “Ghost” Riley.
All things considered, it would not come as a surprise see CoD: Mobile take off as the next big mobile esports title, surpassing the likes of PUBG Mobile, which has hit significant barriers over the past year.
All it will take is the first major esports organization to announce a competitive team and rest will undoubtedly follow. We predict it won’t be long before this happens.
