Activision launched the long-awaited Call of Duty: Mobile October 1 around the world. Since its launch, Call of Duty: Mobile has surpassed 148 million downloads, breaking the first month record of PUBG Mobile and Fortnite. While the classic multiplayer is a highlight of "Call of Duty: Mobile", it also offers a more popular anti-royal mode – a trademark feature of PUBG Mobile.
For Activision's VP of mobile, Chris Plummer, says "Call of Duty: Battle of Royale" is very different from PUBG Mobile.
"Our Battle Royale mode is the only way to capture the genre of the Call of Duty universe, specially built and tailored for Call of Duty: Mobile. We emphasize vehicles, including ATVs, helicopters, terrain and tactical rafts, enabling faster travel with your squad and encouraging ground, sea and air combat, "he said in an interview with The Hindustan Times.
"Also, another thing that sets us apart is players being able to choose an Operator class before they enter the battle, where each Operator has two active equipment elements unique to that class. For example, you can equip a cutting hook while his teammate prepares recovery equipment, "he added.

Plummer also expressed happiness over the popularity of Call of Duty: Mobile in India.
"We saw a lot of interest from gamers in India when we tested the game early. This helped us make sure that the quality of the network would be strong in India and we wanted to make sure that the players in India stay engaged and enthusiastic, but we didn't know how popular it would be once we started globally. We are thrilled to see a large and thriving Call of Duty Mobile player community in India, ”he said.
