Sledgehammer Games is continuing its fantastic communication initiative with Call of Duty: WWII, and PC gamers aren’t being left out in the dark. Over on Steam, the studio talked a bit about the missing Winter Bribes, and even the rampant cheating going on for the PC version of the game.
While the studio acknowledged the PC Winter Bribe issue just a few weeks ago, a new update has been posted, and while the outcome isn’t a good one, at least the studio is communicating, right? The tl;dr version is this: Sledgehammer hasn’t come up with a good solution to fix the missing Winter Bribes, but they are making sure it doesn’t happen again.
We have a couple community updates for you. As you know, there was an issue with the Winter Bribes missing for PC during our Winter Siege event. During the event, we looked into the issue and were not able to find a way to fix this before the event ended. In the days since the event has ended, we have been trying to find a way to retroactively make this right, and we haven’t been able to find a good solution in the short term. We know this is disappointing, and we apologize that this is the case. What we can tell you is that we have worked and coordinated with all teams to make sure this doesn’t happen again for future events. We know this might not be what you wanted to hear, but that’s the update on the situation.
Some good news regarding the cheaters and hackers in the game: As some of you have begun to notice, we have increased our efforts and escalated cases to the appropriate groups in situations where enforcement on hacking/cheating behavior are beyond our reach. We have also been taking extra measures to prevent hackers/cheaters from bypassing some of our previous enforcement measures. We hope this will improve the overall game experience for the PC community.
Thanks, everyone, and please stay tuned for more PC updates coming soon.
Well, there’s that. And at least they are working on making sure the cheaters are kept in their place, right? If you spot a cheater on PC, make sure to report it to the dedicated Twitter account created just for it.
Disappointed by the news? How would you go about making it up for PC players if it was up to you?
