New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on December 14, 2022) follows:

Developed by Activision, COD: Warzone Mobile is the upcoming installment in the Call of Duty series. It’s a fast-paced battle royale action game that throws 120 players on a map and asks them to fight it out.

Currently, the game is still under development and open for pre-registration. It is only available in Australia for limited Android and iOS devices.

But it seems several players have been facing crashing issues (1,2,3,4) with COD Warzone Mobile, even though their devices match or exceed the official requirements.


Whenever I hit the app to open it goes to the loading screen and then force closes I’ve tried it with a VPN on and off and it doesn’t make a difference

Yeah, it says call of duty warzone mobile isn’t compatible with my device, I have 4gb ram, and I extended it to seven with memory fusion, they said the requirements is 3gb ram.

As the crashing reports began to surge across the internet, Activision decided to increase the minimum RAM requirements needed to install Warzone Mobile.


Android devices will now require a minimum of 6GB of RAM and for iOS devices, a minimum of 4GB RAM is needed.

Players complain about memory requirements change

Warzone Mobile players with mid-range devices feel left out and annoyed because of the recent changes made by the developers. Many would now need to buy a new high-end device just to play the game.

Some cannot afford to get a premium device because of their financial constraints and even claim that this would result in a downfall of the game’s popularity.

@WarzoneMobile I’m very sad what they are doing with the game because of the requirements to run the game 6gb ram is unfair for players in regions with more financial and political problems, they should concentrate on this audience 4gb ram is valid but optimize for adreno 610

hi, good evening, about the ram memory requirements to play the game, it’s absurd 6 ram for android and 4 for ios sorry but even in brazil the middle class doesn’t have conditions to have expensive devices like that, that is, here the hype will end

But according to the game’s Reddit community manager, the company will be releasing a more optimized version of the game with lesser memory requirements as soon as it approaches the global release date in 2023.


The recent changes to the RAM requirements were made to address the current performance and optimization issues with Warzone Mobile.

Developers have also assured players that they’ll make the necessary changes with additional updates.

Although, it should be noted that an official ETA has not been released for the time being. We will keep tabs on this topic and update it as soon as we come across any new information.

Update 1 (January 18, 2023)

04:24 pm (IST): The next update of is said to bring optimizations and it may reduce RAM requirement on Android from 6GB to make it playable on more devices. However, there’s no information on the ETA as of now.
