Some fantastic news for PC gamers now, as it has been confirmed that the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops title will have support for dedicated servers, unlike the previous CoD title on PC.
As reported from MTV, Treyarch boss Mark Lamia confirmed the news in a recent interview with CVG. In a statement which is sure to delight PC owners, he had this to say:
“I don’t see any reason not to see them unless… well, I just don’t see any reason not to.”. He also continued to go into specifics on the dedicated servers by adding: “We do work very hard to reconcile the desire to manipulate and modify those dedicated servers with offering them the persistent experience and benefits that the console system provides. ”
It seems as if Treyarch doesn’t fancy a PC backlash like Infinity Ward received when they decided not to use dedicated servers for Modern Warfare 2. Smart move we think.
