It has been confirmed today that the next installment in the Call Of Duty series named Black OPS will have the ability for users to create their own dedicated servers for the PC.
When Modern Warfare 2 was releaed the ability to create dedicated servers for the PC was removed and caused up-raw within the PC gaming community.
While Modern Warfare 2 was developed by Infinity Ward, the next Call of Duty, CoD: Black Ops, is being developed by Activision’s “B” CoD team, Treyarch, and will now definitely feature dedicated servers.
In a recent interview Treyarch head Mark Lamia said:
I think dedicated servers are excellent. I don’t see any reason not to see them unless… well, I just don’t see any reason not to. It seems people like them and we’re excited about what we’re doing right now. […] 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. We’re working very hard to marry those two things, so people can run dedicated servers and also participate in the communal experience the console players get to have, given they’re all on first-party servers
