Great news for all you PC gamers out there, Treyarch’s studio head Mark Lamia has confirmed in an article in PC Zone magazine that we will be seeing dedicated servers for PC in Call of Duty: Black Ops
“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.”
He explains further: “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.”
