COD Mobile origin: Which country made the game?

The initial plans for COD Mobile were drawn by Activision, more than a year after their acquisition of the Swedish developers, ‘KING’, in 2017. For those who do not know, Activision is a very popular American video game company. 
In December 2018, the game was soft-launched in Australia under the title Call of Duty: Legends of War. In March 2019, it was announced that TiMi Studios, a subsidiary of Tencent Games, was to lead the development, and the game would be titled COD Mobile.
COD Mobile was then finally launched worldwide on 1st October 2019. The game was a huge success and gathered a massive total of 35 million downloads in just three days post release. 

Why was Call Of Duty not banned? Or will it be Banned?

In case you are not aware, both the games have been developed and published by the same Chinese developer, Tencent Games. Due to this, many would be wondering if COD: Mobile also ended up getting banned in India or not. The simple answer for the question is – No, Call of Duty: Mobile is not banned in India yet.

The initial plans for COD Mobile were drawn by Activision. COD Mobile is developed by TiMi, and is published in most countries by Activision, a subsidiary of Activision Blizzard. After the Season 9 update, the logo of TiMi Studios and Tencent Games was removed from the loading screen.

However, Tencent holdings still has a 5% stake in Activision Blizzard, and hence, COD Mobile is developed by a Chinese company, but the publishers are American.

It may be that Activision sought to curb the deal with Tencent Games as a result it wasn’t slaughtered.
