COD Warzone Mobile’s launch failed to live up to its predecessor

Announced back in 2022, Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile had been a long time coming, with the title amassing over 50 million pre-registrations. Finally however, the game released last month – and while Warzone Mobile is solid, it has failed so far to live up to its predecessor financially.

For context, Call of Duty released a bespoke mobile title known as COD Mobile back in 2019. Developed outside of Activision, the free-to-play title launched to massive success – becoming one of the largest mobile game launches ever.

Warzone Mobile on the other hand is a more direct port of the current console Warzone experience, with the game built using the IW Engine and allowing for cross-progression with MWIII and Warzone proper.

Despite amassing over 50 million pre-registrations and in many ways being objectively superior to the old COD Mobile, Warzone Mobile has failed to live up to expectations so far.

As reported by Pocket Gamer, in its first 4 days on the market, COD Warzone: Mobile generated $1.4 million. While certainly nothing to sniff at, the figure pales in comparison to the OG COD Mobile, which generated $4.2 million in its first 4 days.

That said, with Warzone Mobile presumably having over 50 million downloads (alongside cross-progression), it will be interesting to see whether the game will eventually surpass its predecessor.
