Activision earlier today confirmed their release of Call of Duty: Strike Team as a timed exclusive for iOS devices including the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. This represents the first mobile title from Activision’s new mobile development studio, The Blast Furnace, lead by developers Mark Washbrook from Rockstar London and Rockstar Leeds’ Gordon Hall.
Call of Duty: Strike Team has reportedly been optimized for mobile devices, offering a choice of how to play: as players control a squad of up to four highly trained Strike Team members, each with customizable skills and loadouts, the in-game view can be seamlessly switched from classic first-person action, to a top-down, third-person perspective providing a full range of both action combat and tactical decision making.

By giving fans the option to play in either first-person or third-person views, and to switch between them on the fly, we’ve really opened the doors for gamers to have a fun and entertaining gameplay experience with Call of Duty: Strike Team, because they can play the game the way they want.
Call of Duty: Strike Team is now available from the App Store at a price of $7.49, with a release on Android devices to follow later this year.
