We’ll chalk it up to the developers not having the foresight to see this coming for now, but Call Of Duty: WWII‘s beta has already been overrun by hackers. There’s an entire Reddit thread that’s been building for the past 24 hours, but essentially, there’s more than just a handful of people who currently have access to the beta who are trying to see what they can get away with. And if you believe the stories, the hackers ratio compared to the regular players seems to be evenly split, with few people being able to get into a game without at least one person on either side.
Now that being said, it has been noted in the feed that many of the cheaters are getting caught and banned fairly quickly upon the report, but it doesn’t seem to be slowing down the epidemic that’s happening online. But those of you fearing more of the same when the game is released on November 3rd, fear not. The chances that it will become this widespread at launch are pretty slim as all the hackers are doing is giving developers time to see what programs they’re using, the tactics they employ, and how to ban them faster upon discovery. Which, in a sense, is part of what a beta should do. Hopefully they have enough time over the next month to quell these issues, but for now, those of you in the Call Of Duty: WWII beta will have to tough it out.
