Activision Leeds, the newly-founded UK studio that will develop Call of Duty mobile games, is to first launch a revamp of '80s classic Pitfall.

Team 17 co-founder and Activision signee Martyn Brown has played down reports the studio would simply be a Call of Duty factory.

"The first game we are making is in fact Pitfall, which is 30 years old this year," Brown told MCV.

"Being able to call upon a wide portfolio of properties is really good for us and we are looking forward to finally showing Pitfall to more people."

Pitfall, Activision's first major game, launched in 1982.

"We've been working on Pitfall since earlier in the year when we set up and it has been really good to revisit that and bring it to a modern audience," Brown added.

Activision Leeds will work on all mobile Call of Duty games, a report last week claimed. The team will share development tools with the franchise's console teams at Treyarch and Infinity Ward.
