According to the developers of Call of Duty: Mobile, they have confirmed in the latest update that support for controllers is being worked on and that they do plan on eventually implementing it. The bad is that it doesn’t seem like it might be arriving anytime soon as they want to get it properly implemented and balanced first.
The post reads, “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.”
It is understandable that balance is an issue, after all, a physical controller would give players a bigger advantage over those who are playing using the on-screen controls. We’re not sure how long it would take for the developers to eventually balance the game, so don’t hold your breath just yet. In the meantime, it appears that even without controller support, the game has proven to be a huge hit, racking up $2 million in in-game revenue in a few days and hitting 100 million downloads in the first week.
