Call of Duty mobile game being made by Candy Crush developer King

King, the company behind hit mobile game Candy Crush, is making a Call of Duty game designed specifically for mobile. The news was revealed in a grandiose job listing on the company’s website; in it, King seeks individuals to fill four positions, including an art director, level designer, senior-level systems designer, and a senior-level UX/UI designer. Whomever the lucky individuals are will have to be located in or willing to relocate to Stockholm, Sweden.

King says that it will sponsor a visa and offer full relocation coverage for individuals who are located outside of Sweden. The company is working on the unnamed titled in collaboration with Activision Blizzard, according to the job listing, and it aims to break ‘new ground for mobile and [redefine] the genre.’

The job listings are fairly typical, at least as far as job listings go: they trump up the company, the position, and seek someone well-rounded in their field. Individuals will work in smaller creative teams, and at least a couple of the new hires will get a large amount of creative freedom. The company even goes so far as to talk about what it’s like living in Sweden.

What about the game itself? Unfortunately, there’s not much of anything to glean from the job postings, and King is careful to avoid giving away any details directly. What we do know is that the company is tasked with translating the game from its console origins to something that works well on mobile, but without sacrificing the COD experience fans have come to know and love.
