For the most part, Call of Duty: WWII’s recent PC beta was a success for Sledgehammer Games, but the studio also conceded that there’s one area in which it clearly needs to step up its game: making sure cheaters and hackers can’t ruin the multiplayer experience for other players.
In a recent blog post on its website, Sledgehammer had this to say in regards to the rampant cheating and hacking that went on during the PC beta:
“Sadly, there are always those who aim to spoil the fun, even in a beta. We have yet to deploy the suite of anti-cheat/hacking technology we will use when the full PC game is live. We take a level playing field extremely serious and will monitor and react to this as a top priority on an ongoing basis.”
The above statement may not completely assuage the worries of Call of Duty: WWII PC players, especially those who participated in the beta, but it’s at least good to know that Sledgehammer is aware of the issue and plans to make sure it isn’t an issue when the full launch on November 3 arrives.
