Massive COD:WWII Leak Forces Developers To Issue Statement

The hugely anticipated Call of Duty: World War 2 is just around the corner and the team behind it has been trying very hard to keep the amount of information available about the game under control, but a recent leak that showed off a ton of content that was supposed to stay under wraps has kind of forced their hand.

The leaks include information about zombie modes, multiplayer, and even some spoilers for the game. Michael Condrey, the co-head of Sledgehammer, has issues a statement in response to the leaks:

“Call of Duty: WWII has been in development for nearly three years, and we’re now less than a month before launch. We can’t wait for fans to experience it on November 3rd.  With Betas, there’s always the risk that some people will try and spoil that experience for others. We have had a couple things leak recently across multiplayer and zombies. It’s disappointing for everyone involved in creating the game. But, in the spirit of transparency, we want to be up front about it. Some of the details were inaccurate, early, or still subject to change. Others we would consider spoilers. We never plan for leaks, but we also understand that it’s hard for fans not to read the news when it’s about something they are so excited to learn more about.”

If you want to avoid any spoilers, and are patient enough to wait just a little bit longer, it’s probabally going to be worth the wait. Also, keep in mind that they’re saying some of the info that leaked isn’t accurate, or that it’s outdated, so you don’t want to get your hopes up for something that ends up not even being a part of the final game.

One of the leaks was the new take on Uplink in Gridiron mode. After these leaks, they’ve released a few new tidbits of their own, not to be outdone by the leakers in the newscycle.

“We are super proud of the game and cannot wait to play it with the community, so please hang on for a bit as November 3rd is almost here. In the meantime, here’s a first look at our London map in multiplayer. It’s a studio favorite for domination, hardpoint, and TDM, and we think it could be a standout for the competitive season ahead.  Also, it’s a lot of fun for the new Gridiron game mode coming at launch, here’s a taste.”

Here’s a look at the upcoming London map that the developers are very excited about:

If you’ve been following this game’s progress, the leaks might not be any huge revelation, and chances are we’ll see more before the game is officially released. Call of Duty: World War II is dropping on November 3rd for all the big platforms, however Switch is absent from that list.
