Emblem Editor Confirmed for Call of Duty: WWII but Won’t Be in the Beta
While responding to fans on social media platforms, Sledgehammer Games has confirmed more features inbound for Call of Duty: WWII later this year.
The Emblem Editor, which has been a core part of the popular military franchise, will return for the latest installment. It has gone through changes with every annual release in the past. For example, the last couple of Call of Duty installments made it so that new emblems could be unlocked through progress or the store. However, the developer is not ready to talk about details just yet.
According to co-founder Michael Condrey, the Emblem Editor will not be released during the beta testing and will only arrive alongside the full version in fall.
It will not. But it will be there on Nov 3.

It has also been confirmed that the Soviet-made PPSh-41 sub-machine gun will be part of the weaponry featured in Call of Duty: WWII. The cheap but reliable alternative to the PPD-40 has made appearances in several past installments, going back as far as the original Call of Duty.
The PPSh-41 was initially picked up by players as a profound option when it came to running-and-gunning. However, more recent installments scaled the weapon back in terms of impact by reducing the capacity of the magazine.
Last week, the developer released information about the five different divisions of the game that will serve as different multiplayer classes. They are all designed to offer unique play-styles depending on what the player likes.
Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled to host a beta event for PlayStation 4 on August 25. Later, on September 1, another beta wave will take place on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The final game will hit shelves on November 3 worldwide.
