Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: WWII has been off to a bit of a rocky start with the game servers being unable to handle the number of players. This has seen some features like the social HQ disabled until the servers can be stabalised. One thing that has been working is double XP which players have been getting since the game launched.
This past weekend, that got even better as players got 3XP for the weekend which was touted as 2XP.
According to a Reddit post by chief operating and development officer Michael Condrey, players have been getting the XP boosts above what they originally planned.
No sarcasm in my response. We launched with 2XP active, unintentionally. Everyone was getting 2XP since 11/3 and up until we made the playlist change late Thursday night, which effectively launched 3XP.
Now, the XP is back to what was intended with Condrey congratulating early players with
So early players, you got a huge head start.
Some players don’t believe the explanation and instead chose to believe that Sledgehammer Games saw that players were ranking up too quickly and instead chose to nerf the XP.
Call of Duty: WWII is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
