Sledgehammer Addresses Call of Duty: WW2 Multiplayer Issues

Post-match disconnects, on the other hand, are also having a impact on players trying to complete in-game challenges.

Following news this weekend that Call of Duty: WWII dedicated servers have been turned off to fix the lingering connection issues with the shooter, Sledgehammer Games has given an update on the situation.

If you've been playing Call of Duty: WWII since it launched you may have noticed a sudden drop off in the amount of experience you've been earning.

Is Call of Duty: WWII your game?

With these connection issues, the developers will continue to create solo instances in the Headquarters social space.

Dedicated servers will be tested in the United States today. As a result, we moved to P2P (listen) servers. As a result, the developers switched the game to P2P servers which solved the issue, but brought the age-old "Host Migration" problem whenever the peer left the game.

Sledgehammer Games says that their first priority is returning to dedicated servers. But we get it, headquarters is best enjoyed with a thriving, fully populated social community interacting together. We have the next PC Title Update ready to go, but we believe we need to work through the issues noted above first - many of which also affect PC players.

For the time being, fixing Headquarters is low priority for Sledgehammer, and while it will get to fixing the social space, it is now focusing on "the most pressing concerns first". Stay tuned for Parts 2 and 3, which will debut tomorrow on our YouTube channel at 10 a.m. PT. Activision is committed to supporting our veterans and we invite fans to join our cause to help them find high-quality jobs through the Call of Duty Endowment.

On one hand, it's odd and unacceptable that a paid-for product and live service straight up isn't delivering on what it's suppose to - especially in a game that's mostly based on online play. They've been shattering records and serving millions online for well over a decade with Call of Duty releases.

Call of Duty WW2 may have its problems, but it doesn't appear to have affected sales.
