How mobile game devs are evolving test and launch strategies
Call of Duty server matchmaking problems are causing long wait times for Modern Warfare and Warzone players. Call of Duty down reports have been on the rise all day today. However, it might be that Call of Duty is not ‘down’ in the typical sense, but there does appear to be problems with matchmaking, which has now been confirmed by Activision Support. Stay tuned for updates. However, this update was announced over 4 hours ago and there’s been no further word on what might be causing the issues.

Evolve is an asymmetrical multiplayer game where a team of hunters chase down a monster. It was made by the hugely talented Left 4 Dead developers over six years before being released early in , and I thought it was great. But publisher 2K, so convinced of the game’s quality, put in place various DLC packages and pre-order bonuses to milk what it expected to be an enormous community. The perception took hold that Evolve was ripping off players—who had to buy the “core” game first—and it failed to sell in anything like the numbers expected.
Now it’s dead. The tragedy is that Siege offers something new and unique in the stalest of genres, the mainstream FPS.
Multiplayer matchmaking might be doomed to suck

Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. Described as a ” hero shooter “, Overwatch assigns players into two teams of six, with each player selecting from a roster of over 30 characters , known as “heroes”, each with a unique style of play that is divided into three general roles that fit their purpose. Players on a team work together to secure and defend control points on a map or escort a payload across the map in a limited amount of time.
Players gain cosmetic rewards that do not affect gameplay, such as character skins and victory poses, as they play the game. The game was initially launched with only casual play, but a competitive ranked mode, various ‘arcade’ game modes, and a player-customizable server browser were added after release.
Launching a successful new mobile game is increasingly risky and expensive. Yet, despite significant industry changes in recent years, most developers continue to test and launch new games in largely the same way as they did three to four years ago. At Google Play I’ve had the chance to work with mobile developers on hundreds of game launches. I’ve seen first-hand how developers are evolving their development and go-to-market strategies in an effort to “de-risk” new launches and where they’re not, but probably should be.
I hope that by sharing some of these insights you’ll find ways to adapt and evolve your go-to-market playbook to make your next launch more successful. First, what do I mean when I say that most developers continue testing and launching new games as they did in years past? Many developers today follow what I call the “traditional launch playbook”. A more traditional launch playbook usually involves extensive internal testing in early development phases, followed by various stages of external testing prior to full launch e.
Most often, external testing consists of releasing a production version of a new game vs a beta version in specific geographies at various stages. For instance, many developers with a more traditional playbook do technical testing in the Philippines, retention testing in the Nordics, and monetization testing in Australia or Canada. While the countries may differ here or there, these new games are usually tested in no more than five to seven countries in total, with deployment limited to higher-end device types due to stability and rating concerns.

Evolve is only 11 days from going live in the wild. The fact that its a NEW IP is a huge draw and exactly what this new generation of console players need. Secondly EVOLVE is the first new game this year to throw its hat into the ever so finicky realm of competitive gaming. While not being heavy handed about this aspect of the gameplay, studio Turtle Rock has been quoted as saying that the game has a very competitive component to it and this is not something they have turned a blind eye to.
The game has been showcased to the public in several events wrapped around a tournament format. So many elements of the game screams competitive play but on the surface the 4V1 nature causes a lot of the E-Sport purists out there to hesitate.
