King is making a Call of Duty game for mobile
A surprising new Call of Duty game has just been revealed, but there's no mention of WW2 or a 2017 release date.
The brand new Call of Duty game is actually being made by Candy Crush developer King, and will serve as a mobile spinoff to the popular shooter series.
The news was announced on the King website, alongside ads for a level designer, art director, senior systems designer and user-interface designer.
According to the careers page, the mobile version of Call of Duty will be fresh, social, accessible and highly authentic.
It might be the mobile Call of Duty experience fans have been waiting for, or more likely a match-3 puzzle game where bullets and jelly beans.
"Our challenge as a team is to create a Call of Duty experience on mobile that will strive to transform the best console experience fans know and love, while also breaking new ground for mobile and redefining the genre," reads a King blog post.
"Our approach and ambition is to be fresh, social, and highly accessible, while providing a very authentic game experience.
"The team will prototype extensively, have the freedom to think outside the box, and be encouraged to stretch their expertise in ways to create surprising results."
