During the recent Call of Duty: WWII PC beta, one Redditor was able to access hidden menus that revealed a number of new details about the game, including the fact that it will have a boots on the ground version of the Uplink game mode called Gridiron. Now, game director Michael Condrey has gone ahead and confirmed Gridiron’s existence.
Speaking in a recent statement, Condrey had this to say in regards to the beta leaks:
“Call of Duty: WWII has been in development for nearly three years, and we’re now less than a month before launch. We can’t wait for fans to experience it on November 3rd. With Betas, there’s always the risk that some people will try and spoil that experience for others. We have had a couple things leak recently across multiplayer and zombies. It’s disappointing for everyone involved in creating the game. But, in the spirit of transparency, we want to be up front about it. Some of the details were inaccurate, early, or still subject to change. Others we would consider spoilers. We never plan for leaks, but we also understand that it’s hard for fans not to read the news when it’s about something they are so excited to learn more about.”
Later on in the statement, Condrey specifically mentioned Gridiron while also unveiling a new multiplayer map for Call of Duty: WWII which will be set in the city of London:
“We are super proud of the game and cannot wait to play it with the community, so please hang on for a bit as November 3rd is almost here. In the meantime, here’s a first look at our London map in multiplayer. It’s a studio favorite for domination, hardpoint, and TDM, and we think it could be a standout for the competitive season ahead. Also, it’s a lot of fun for the new Gridiron game mode coming at launch, here’s a taste.”
