When it comes to multiplayer games, developers sometimes have to decide if they want to reply on a P2P connection or creating dedicated servers for their game. Clearly the latter is a bigger investment, which may or may not pay off depending on how many players play the game, but the benefits are obvious.

This is something that Sledgehammer Games is more than aware of, and the good news for those who bought Call of Duty: WWII is that the developer has announced that they are testing out dedicated servers for the game. At the moment the game relies on P2P, and according to Sledgehammer, “Overall, the game is stable, however we know that P2P brings things like Host Migrations and other issues that make for inconsistent gameplay experiences. Our objective to return to dedicated servers is our highest priority.”

This is why they have decided to launch dedicated servers, which are currently in testing. “This weekend we rolled out various test solutions in limited markets in order to fully analyze real-world conditions without risking disruption. This level of data and diagnostics is helping us work toward a permanent solution as quickly as possible.  We’ve begun to test dedicated servers today in the US. We’ll watch this test closely, and once we analyze the results we’ll look to expand.”

There is no word on when these dedicated servers will be rolled out in full, but gamers who are looking forward to a more stable experience when playing Call of Duty: WWII will want to keep an eye out for this.
