Activision announces its new upcoming mobile title codenamed Project Aurora, which will be a battle royale game. Activision states that through Project Aurora, they want to bring friends, families, and people around the world together in a global community of diverse players with a fast-paced, precise, and high-quality Battle Royale action experience that delivers a fresh new way to play.


Project Aurora has been circulating online for quite some time now. You may have heard snippets of it through Reddit or YouTube but Activision still haven’t revealed anything official about it. What’s known is that Project Aurora is currently being developed and in the midst of its first Closed Alpha gameplay test. The closed alpha test is limited and developers only aim to start improving the tuning, stress test matches, identify and fix bugs, as well as collect feedback and insights on all aspects of the game as new features are being introduced.
