Mobile gaming has become a dominant part of the industry and many popular IPs like Call of Duty, Fortnite, PUBG, and others are having lots of success. Another popular First-Person Shooter might be joining the mobile gaming space as soon as this year.
According to Kurakasis, who has become a very reliable source on X (formerly Twitter), claims that Rust Mobile is in development with Level Infinite being involved as the publisher or collaborative partner. They are also the publisher of PUBG Mobile, Assassin’s Creed Jade, and Honor of Kings.
If this is true, Rust for mobile will be announced sometime this year.

Rust is a very popular game on Steam that averages around 100,000 players daily with an all-time peak of 244,394 (Thanks Steam Charts). Rust was first released in early access in December 2013 and received a full release in February 2018. You can play the game on Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Mac currently.
It is safe to say it would be a smart move for Facepunch Studios and Double Eleven to release their biggest hit on mobile devices.
