Hackers and cheaters in games suck and it ruins the experience for all, which is why companies like Blizzard have adopted a no-nonsense policy with its latest game, Overwatch, where cheaters are immediately banned from the game when caught. It seems that Sledgehammer Games is taking a similar approach with the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII.
When the developer launched the PC open beta, it seems that the experience for gamers was ruined by cheaters and hackers, but the company has since confirmed that they will be addressing that problem by putting in anti-cheat and anti-hacking measures into place at the launch of the game itself, meaning that hopefully players won’t have their experiences ruined (possibly again) when the game is live.
According to the company, “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.”
Call of Duty: WWII is currently set for a release on the 3rd of November where it will be launched on the PS4, the Xbox One, and the PC.
