After leaks came from the PC beta for Call of Duty: WWII, where players rummaged through data to find out more about the game, Sledgehammer Games’ Michael Condrey stepped forward in a move of transparency.
In Condrey’s statement published by CharlieIntel, he confirmed the legitimacy of the leaks and how some should be considered “spoilers”. There wasn’t any specificity regarding which leaks were true aside from the existence of Gridiron, WWII’s translation of Uplink, and London Docks. For now, questions of map count and microtransactions must remain until more details come from Sledgehammer.
London Docks has a blitz-time England setting that Condrey claims is “a studio favorite” for most game modes and one that he hopes is a standout for the competitive season. The picture provided for Gridiron merely shows the form of the game piece, which maintains the spherical shape from past Uplink objectives. In WWII, it’s a leather-bound football. More details of Gridiron have yet to come, but we can only assume it will at least be comparable to Uplink. Condrey himself thinks it’s better.
If more details come forth regarding the leaks, we’ll be sure to update. For now, Call of Duty: WWII releases for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One systems November 3.
