Call of Duty: World War II is returning back to the series’ roots and doing a sea of changes. The latest major change confirmed is the complete removal of the unlimited sprint feature from the game.
This means you won’t be able to round around the map for an unlimited amount of time nor will you be able to do it while playing the single player campaign.
A simple ‘NO’ by one of the developers confirmed the news:

It is important to note that the last three entries into the franchise all featured unlimited sprint as a default feature in the game. Previous Call of Duty games have also offered it as a perk.
The developer didn’t reveal if the unlimited sprint feature is removed permanently or it can be obtained by unlocking a perk. However, this gels well with the fact that the game is based on a World War II setting and hence makes sense to have limited sprinting capabilities (no exosuits).
This is a major change nonetheless and will have a big impact on how the gameplay feels and some players might take some time getting used to it.
Call of Duty: WWII devs recently confirmed that players won’t be able to play as the Axis forces in the campaign mode. The game releases on November 3rd for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
