Mltiplyr is reporting that a recent twitter post from Treyarch’s David Vonderhaar has confirmed that the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be deferring from the usual matchmaking system of region, and instead be using a latency and ping method.

The twitter post in question has since been deleted, however if the change is true, it will most likely help those who in previous CoD games found the matchmaking was placing them in games with not-so-favourable hosts. It is not known whether this system will be in place for PC players, however currently Treyarch has confirmed that those on the computer will be given a ranked dedicated server model, which shouldn't make lag a problem.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be available for all platforms on November 13th.

as long as there is some sort an in game server browser, the title should be great. i enjoyed mw3 but finding decent matches became such a hassel with the release of the expansion packs - not being able to see whats out there and select which server you think will work best is a huge negative. imo its what killed max payne 3 multiplayer - and the most irrateting match-making music every made.

Why wasn't matchmaking always done this way though? I thought it'd just be common sense not to match people with games they have high pings to.

MW3 was plagued by hackers who ruined it long before the DLC got here.

Why was match making ever brought in at all? I thought it'd just be common sense to give out a dedicated server executable and let everyone who wants to, run their own server.

Oh that's right, because then games could go on forever and no one could shut down the match making servers to force you to buy the next version.
