A new internal studio at Activision Blizzard is working on a new Call of Duty mobile game, Activision Blizzard announced during its most recent earnings call.

Although the call began with a cursory acknowledgment of the lawsuit accusing it of fostering a work environment full of sexual harassment and discrimination, most of the time was spent discussing Activision Blizzard business plans.

"We have established a new internal mobile studio and are aggressively adding mobile resources across several teams, including Beenox and Activision Shanghai," Activision president Rob Kostich said during the call. "Together these teams are leading the development of an unannounced, new, mobile title within the Call of Duty universe that we expect will help take the franchise to new heights."

Kostich didn't share any other information about the game, and the announcement went largely unremarked upon during the question and answer session at the end of the call.

Activision released Call of Duty: Mobile in 2019 and has focused on it as the main mobile Call of Duty experience since then. The free-to-play shooter was developed by TiMi Studio group, and during the earnings call Activision Blizzard said it was on track to see more than $1 billion in consumer spending in 2021.
