The saga of the controller continues for the mobile shooter.
It’s hard to see Call of Duty: Mobile as anything but a pretty major success. The game, which attempts to encompass several key COD subseries into one on the go package, saw over 100 million downloads in less than a week and a massive surge of revenue. It hasn’t been without some disappointment, however. The game launched with controller support but then unexpectedly axed it just one day after launch. Now, it seems Activision is testing to reintroduce the popular feature.
On the game’s official Reddit, the publisher broke down upcoming updates for the game. As far as controller support, they said they heard the cries for the return of the feature and are currently in the process of testing it again for balance.
“We hear you loud and clear that you want to know about controller support. We are currently testing controller support and looking at the possibility of offering this feature sometime in the future, but we’d have to make sure it is properly implemented and balanced. Just hang tight.”
Earlier, they floated the idea of bringing back controller support along with separate lobbies to section off players who used touch screens and controllers, but this is the first time they’ve actively said they are testing the feature. Hopefully, those who need that controller will get a chance to use it soon. Otherwise, you can still download the game now across all compatible iOS and Android mobile devices.
