The mobile gaming industry has its own trends, its own success stories, and there is no guarantee that an IP and outstanding offering on consoles and PCs will experience the same on Android or iOS. In recent years, the success of Pokémon GO and the possibilities of providing an immersive experience through GPS and augmented reality have motivated different proposals that follow that line and apparently Activision could bet on that.
Activision could bet on an augmented reality title for mobiles
Activision Blizzard is no stranger to the mobile sector, in fact they own King, a successful company responsible for Candy Crush. However, soon the story of the huge American video game company could account for a more direct proposal and its origin could be in a newly registered patent. According to information from GameRant, yesterday February 11, 2021, Activision Blizzard registered the patent “Gps Seed For Game Play”, a proposal that is based on the use of GPS to establish coordinates and trigger events in particular according to the position of the user.
According to the description of the patent, this system would work like a germinating seed does, that is, when starting the game, the GPS would come into operation to locate the player and users within a radius. Right at that moment, the system would initiate one or more events that could be experienced and enjoyed by users who are right at or near those coordinates.
Of course, like all patents, the one registered by Activision Blizzard can remain as such and never be seen in action, but the opposite can also happen and lead to the creation of a game that takes advantage of technological advances, both in mobile hardware and speeds. connection and 5G.
