Call of Duty Mobile players keeping their fingers crossed about controller support returning have been handed a boost from Activision.

Call of Duty Mobile launched earlier this week on iOS and Android and has already become a huge hit for Activision.

The free-to-play COD game was downloaded over 20million times during its first two days, and generated $2million in player spending.

The iPhone and Android COD game was released on October 1 and it looked like it would launch with a surprise feature.

Prior to the game’s launch it had emerged an option for controller support would appear in the game’s setting.

But on launch day an update was pushed out which disabled this setting in Call of Duty Mobile.

In the aftermath one Call of Duty Mobile player asked the Activision Support Twitter if controller support was still a feature in COD Mobile.

They asked: “Controller support update!?”

And the Activision Support Twitter responded: “Hello there, thank you for contacting Spec Ops support.

“Unfortunately, this is no longer supported after the most recent update. I would be more than happy to help. Thank you.”

The feature was seemingly disabled during an update that launched on Call of Duty Mobile’s first day.

However, it’s emerged that the feature may be making a return – in dedicated lobbies.

Speaking to HYPEBEAST, Activision’s VP of mobile Chris Plummer said: “In terms of peripherals, we are looking at the possibility and have already been testing controller support with a portion of our live audience.

“It is very important to us that we maintain fair balance across the game.”

He added: “One example of this is we have separate lobbies in Battle Royale for first-person perspective and third-person perspective players since you have the option to choose either in Battle Royale.

“We may implement a similar solution for players using controllers if needed.”

If it does get introduced the move will come as welcome news to those fans that were left disappointed by its omission.

Earlier this week one user commented on the lack of controller support by pointing out: “Mobile gaming will never be taken seriously if they can’t get this right.

“It’s not comfortable to play hands only, and if you’re a big unit like me, with bear hands, too much of the screen is obscured, and carpal tunnel is going to kick in.”

While another added: “Completely agree, mobile games can be super fun but unfortunately the controls are clunky and awkward.

“I get a controller ‘defeats the purpose’ however there’s just some mobile games you want to play comfortably and some aren’t even on big consoles or PC.”
