After Activision and Infinity Ward shunned its dedicated servers for Modern Warfare 2, Treyarch have responded from the backlash and says that Call of Duty: Black Ops will be a “true PC title” and it “never wavered” when they decided to bring back dedicated servers for the upcoming FPS.
One of the many reasons they are bringing dedicated servers back is due to the fact that they value the PC platform very highly, as “we are a PC developer” Cesar Statsny, head of PC development for Treyarch said.
“We had dedicated servers in our last title, we had planned on dedicated servers for our subsequent title all along, so we haven’t actually wavered on that at all.
Statsny goes on to say that he believes the studio are making a “true PC title” and that it is “really important for the studio,” especially as they want to support the PC community as much as possible.
Stastny also said that mod-tools are undoubtedly going to play a major part post-release, a date which could not be confirmed at this time.
So good news all around for PC players, dedicated servers, mod-tools, and 110% commitment to the player base meaning that maybe the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions would be taking a back seat in this release, but i’m sure that they will be as popular if not more. Only time will tell.
Are you happy dedicated servers are making a comeback?
