A new job listing on Activision's company site suggests Call of Duty: Warzone could be on the way to mobile devices.

The listing seeks an executive producer of features for WZM, which may be an abbreviation of Warzone Mobile, according to screenshots taken by Call of Duty news site Charlie Intel.

"As Executive Producer, Features you will own product framing and player experience of a new AAA mobile FPS in the Call of Duty franchise," reads the description of the role's mission. "Developing in collaboration with multiple Activision studio locations around the world, this leader is a skilled communicator and development leader who can define and harvest the important elements."

Despite the reference to a new FPS in the franchise, the responsibilities listed in the posting make several more references to Warzone specifically. Those include:

  • Harvest, adapt and deliver the essential features from Warzone console and PC into their best mobile instantiation
  • Improve upon the Warzone formula by proposing and producing mobile-specific additions and changes to features to ensure a best-in-class mobile experience that players will love
  • Serve as a primary point of contact on Warzone Mobile leadership team for clarity and decisions on user-facing features, UX and overall quality

Call of Duty: Mobile already includes a battle royale mode using locations from Modern Warfare and Block Ops. The new position suggests either a significant reshaping of this pre-existing game or an entirely new game based on Warzone.

The listing no longer appears on the Activision careers page.
