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

Call of Duty: WW2 Dev

Sledgehammer launched a 2XP event for the weekend just gone, but players soon noticed the amount of XP they gained wasn't quite double.

On Activision's support site, it lists the PS4 version as having an "outage" with the message, "We're now experiencing connectivity issues".

Despite the first major patch for the game, players are still experiencing online connectivity issues and the Headquarters social space isn't working as intended. Once we know what's up, whether other platforms are affected, we'll be sure to update the post. Thankfully, Sledgehammer Games is pushing out a few updates which include temporarily disabling dedicated servers.

Call of Duty: WWII is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Today for instance, every match of competitive multiplayer or the game's co-op Nazi Zombies mode has booted my party before completion.

Despite these issues, Gfk Chart-Track - who track the UK's physical videogame sales - say Call of Duty: WWII is on course for the strongest second week of sales in the last two years. As a result, the developers migrated online play to peer-to-peer (P2P) servers in an effort to provide a more stable experience. "We're not there yet, and we won't rest until we are".

"While our previous Game Update which released early Friday solved several critical needs, unfortunately it also had an adverse effect on server performance", Sledgehammer explains. Our objective to return to dedicated servers is our highest priority. So hang in there while we address the most pressing concerns first.

Sledgehammer has released a blog post addressing various complaints that fans have about Call of Duty: WWII's server issues promising a return to normality.

PC players waiting for their first patch need to take a knee, as Sledgehammer won't be rolling that out until the problems plaguing the other patched console versions have been fixed. "We recognize that and we hear you", a statement said.

Call of Duty WW2 made $500 million in sales over the course of its opening weekend.
