In the second quarter of 2020, Call of Duty Mobile had seen sequential quarterly growth in engagement and player investment, benefiting from both shelter-in-place and updates for seasonal content and gameplay improvements. The game released three seasons in Q2 and each generated more net bookings per day than the prior.
