Devs want Call of Duty: WWII to excel on PC, but hackers are already ruining it

Call of Duty on Pc has, for many years, felt like a bit of an afterthought. From the original games, right up until Modern Warfare, the series felt right at home on PC, but it’s since felt like the platform’s been neglected. Call of Duty has been an overtly console-focused series. Perhaps it’s the rampant cheating, perhaps it’s the lack of servers, but Call of Duty on PC has long lost its lustre.

With its back to its roots focus, this year’s Call of Duty hopes to re-emerge as a PC game worth playing. That’s according to the developer of the PC version, Raven soft. They’re the same folks who did a stellar job in remastering Modern Warfare.

“The World War II setting, and this game in particular I think, is very well suited for the PC community, in the way some of the recent releases haven’t [been],” said Raven CTO Dwight Luetscher to PC Gamer.

“We’re really trying to focus on the PC, and more importantly focus on the PC community, and deliver a title that really matches their expectations for what Call of Duty is and should be, and make sure that we respond to what they want as a player. I think this year there’s a renewed energy around the PC, throughout this entire title, both at Sledgehammer and Raven. We really believe this is the year where the PC is going to excel. This is the year that we’re going to give it our best shot to win the hearts and minds of the PC community.”

The PC open beta’s coming to a close, but it seems it’s already falling prey to hackers and cheaters ruining the experience for other people. According to numerous people on Reddit, hackers have implemented aimbots and wallhacks already, which is obviously infuriating for those who’re just trying to have a good time.

Hopefully the open beta serves as a way to find those hack and stomp them out before release, or Call of Duty on PC’s doomed to continue to stagnate. did you try the open beta on PC – and most importantly, did you play the fantastic War Mode?

    Sadly, I don’t see any way to stop them.

    Tried it on Friday, not impressed especially with the Peer 2 Peer thing, laggy stuff everywhere.

      They’re too cheap for proper servers unfortunately. Lagfest of note.

        they dont even host the servers, its ridiculous.
        CoD4 was hosted locally by local providers.
        Battlefield is hosted by local providers.
        Dota 2 is hosted by mweb.

        its dumb.

      Cannot believe theyr still going with Peer 2 Peer.
      It has been the most constant complaint since MW2.
      The complaint meme is even older than the ones about CoD being copy paste games.

    Being an afterthought hurts.

    looking back at their older games, CoD4 and MW2, they had some of the biggest and most involved communities Ive seen.
    CoD4 ran for years and years and years, with the competitive scene being super crazy high level on PC and the video editing scene for games as we know it, was pretty much founded on CoD4.
    Even MW2, even if it could be summarised as 360noscope#420MLGswaglife, was a really long lived community by online modern gaming standards.

    Console CoD is basically just a bunch of prepubescent teens shouting at each other promoting this culture of recycled gaming.
    And they get priority over PC because money…

    I wanted to Download the beta, then I had flashbacks of previous CoDs and just gave it a skip.

    we need to change the word ” hackers ” to ” princesses” , the more we make them believe they are real hackers the more they will keep on doing it. a hacker is usually a well studied person on “X” field. not these pu…ies, just searching online for software made by a real hacker. sorry im old and tired of cheaters since the quake 1 era
