Activision Blizzard’s developer list continues to grow as last night, the developer has added another mobile developer to their ranks. This time, they’ve taken the mobile developer studio Digital Legends, based in Barcelona, Spain. Digital Legends are mostly known for mobile titles, and such games include the iOS port of Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
Activision Blizzard’s shifted several developers towards the Call of Duty side of things, and Digital Legends are no different. They’ve been assigned to a Call of Duty project, but it isn’t the titular Call of Duty Mobile. Let’s break down Digital Legends’ merger with Activision Blizzard, shall we?
What’s Next for Digital Legends
Following the original announcement, Rob Kostich, president at Activision, had this to say: “This is an incredible team of development pros at Digital Legends, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to the Activision team. This is a great step forward as we continue to build additional world-class development resources focused on creating exciting and innovative content for our players.”
Meanwhile, Digital Legends has been assigned to work on a new mobile Call of Duty game alongside Beenox, Activision Shanghai, and a new internal team called Solid State. As of now, it seems as if most, if not, all, developers owned by Activision are working on a product relating to Call of Duty. It comes off as being rather one-note.
However, there’s no denying that Call of Duty sells, and Activision is merely continuing to act on that. Makes sense, though. Hopefully, whatever project that Digital Legends are working on, is a successful one.
