Dedicated servers for Call of Duty: Black Ops

Posted By | On 14th, May. 2010

The studio head at Treyarch, Mark Lamia, has said that Call of Duty: Black Ops will contain dedicated servers.

Speaking to PC Gamer, Lamia expressed his huge support for dedicated servers, and rather to our bemusement, wondered why anyone would ever not include them (Don’t worry Activision, it’s all a learning process…..) .

“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,” he said.

“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.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops releases on November 9 for PS3, 360, PC and Wii.
