Call of Duty: WWII has a lot of issues when it launched, making it difficult for gamers to access the game’s multiplayer modes. In a blog post, Sledgehammer announced that they plan to update the game with new updates to resolve the issues.

The update will address:

Online Connectivity – While our previous Game Update which released early Friday solved several critical needs, unfortunately it also had an adverse effect on server performance.  As a result, we moved to P2P (listen) servers.  Overall, the game is stable, however we know that P2P brings things like Host Migrations and other issues that make for inconsistent gameplay experiences. Our objective to return to dedicated servers is our highest priority.

Dedicated Servers – This weekend we rolled out various test solutions in limited markets in order to fully analyze real-world conditions without risking disruption. This level of data and diagnostics is helping us work toward a permanent solution as quickly as possible.  We’ve begun to test dedicated servers today in the US. We’ll watch this test closely, and once we analyze the results we’ll look to expand.

Game Disconnects From Server – After much testing, our engineering teams identified the root cause of this issue, which can also result in lost stats and post match lobby freezes.  Later tonight, we plan to deploy a patch across both consoles worldwide. We’ll monitor the results, and keep everyone updated.

Headquarters – As we focus on the return to dedicated servers as our highest priority, we will continue to utilize a solo-HQ experience.  Players can still invite friends, which we encourage everyone to try.  But we get it, HQ is best enjoyed with a thriving, fully populated social community interacting together. So hang in there while we address the most pressing concerns first.

Sledgehammer explained that they plan to roll out a new update for the PS4 and Xbox One that fixes the root cause players have been facing that disconnects them from the server. A new PC update is now available but Sledgehammer delayed it for more development time.

Sledgehammer wants the community to continue talking about them for any issues regarding the game and thanked everyone for their continued support.

Call of Duty: WWII is now available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
