Call of Duty: WW2 Dev "Working Around The Clock" To Address Issues

No Caption Provided

The next wave of Call of Duty WW2 updates will attempt to fix online connectivity.

Call of Duty: WWII was meant to be a return to form for publisher Activision's flagship game franchise but its launch has been marred with errors and rampant server issues. In response to this, Sledgehammer dropped the dedicated servers and switched to a P2P setup. However, we also know we've had issues, there's frustration. Dedicated servers are preferred, and fans may be happy to know that Sledgehammer aims to bring them back in due course; doing so is the studio's "highest priority".

Developers have already begun to test dedicated servers in the United States but one wonders if these "tests" were better suited ahead of the game's release. In addition, the Sledgehammer engineering team believes it found the issue behind disconnects resulting in lost game stats.

How are you liking Call of Duty WW2 Multiplayer so far? Players can still invite friends, which we encourage everyone to try.

On dedicated servers, the post continues: "This weekend we rolled out various test solutions in limited markets in order to fully analyze real-world conditions without risking disruption".

OPEC head says oil cuts 'only viable option' to stabilize market
Global production cuts are the "only viable option" to restore stability in the oil market, Barkindo said. Stockpiles have declined by more than 180 million barrels this year alone, he said.

The developer also confirmed that the game's social hub, Headquarters, is still not working correctly, and has for the time being been turned into a solo experience. "This level of data and diagnostics is helping us work toward a permanent solution as quickly as possible", Sledgehammer said.

COD:WWII got a patch on Friday last week, which resolved a number of launch issues, but it also introduced some new ones. "We'll watch this test closely, and once we analyse the results we'll look to expand". So hang in there while we address the most pressing concerns first. We won't rest until we resolve everything we can for the community.

As technical foulups go, there's one more that has been received more positively. Regardless, the move seems to have paid off, as WWII reportedly broke $500 million in sales in its first three days on shelves.

But perhaps even more impressive is that it has doubled the sales of Infinite Warfare for the same period.
