Sledgehammer Games, developer for the upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, has confirmed in a recent interview that the newest title in the long-running franchise will support dedicated servers.
The news has come from an interview with Stevivor
) earlier this month, where Sledgehammer Games’ Michael Condrey answered the question of whether or not dedicated servers will be supported by Advanced Warfare.
“We’ve got some announcements coming. Yes, we will be supporting dedicated servers and there will be announcements soon on which providers and platforms. I can’t answer just yet, but you can let your community know that it’s coming,” he said.
Dedicated servers are a long-time tradition for PC games, and with the recent rise in console gaming that factor has been slowly losing ground when it comes to large multi-platform games. It is arguably the best way to experience a multiplayer game, something AusGamers has discussed very heavily
in the past
. Using dedicated servers, players are able to experience an almost pristine connection, instead of relying on the flaky peer-to-peer approach console games are known for.
Previous Call of Duty titles have seen dedicated server support in one way or another, though of course there has been times where only peer-to-peer was offered. Hopefully we'll have more news on the service sooner rather than later.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is heading to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 4th.
