The development team has been working incredibly hard since launch to continue improving the online experience, and making in-game tuning adjustments based on the enormous amount of match data we've collected,” said Sledgehammer.

We worked to redeploy our dedicated servers globally on all platforms last week, with stability and speed of connection (ping) being our top priorities. We were able to address a number of important things noted in previous blog posts, and we remain 100% committed to providing the best possible online game experience for the entire community.”

Finally, Sledgehammer has promised a new Call of Duty WW2 update next week, which will implement a number of key fixes and improvements to the UI.

We are currently play testing a reduced flinch over all weapon primaries, and will look to update once we verify the balance across all weapons remains. Stay tuned for more exciting news on changes coming, including new game modes launching during our Winter Siege event,” said the developer.
