King Digital Entertainment, founded in 2003, was acquired and is now wholely owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard Inc as of February 2016 for $5.9 billion.

King Digital has launched a new recruitment website announcing a new studio in Stockholm, Sweden that will focus on bringing Call of Duty to mobile devices.

We are a new King team, located in Stockholm, Sweden, and we’re working on an exciting new project. The team is adapting one of the most iconic game franchises of all-time: Call of Duty®, to become a mobile experience. This is a rare and exciting opportunity. Our challenge as a team is to create a Call of Duty experience on mobile that will strive to transform the best console experience fans know and love, while also breaking new ground for mobile and redefining the genre. Our approach and ambition is to be fresh, social, and highly accessible, while providing a very authentic game experience. The team will prototype extensively, have the freedom to think outside the box, and be encouraged to stretch their expertise in ways to create surprising results.

On the new recruitment website, King confirms that they are working with Activision to create this game. King has been extremely successful in the mobile division, with Candy Crush saga seeing almost $2 billion in revenue since its launch on mobile. King website says they want to create a Call of Duty experience “that fans will want to play for years.”

To support this project, King currently has a few job openings at their new studio.
