Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will receive an update soon that will introduce a number of polish items and fixes such as connectivity optimization, Sledgehammer Games studio head Michael Condrey recently revealed in a blogpost
A roll out window was not offered for the upcoming update which will include the following:
Prestige reset issues, including emblems and challenges.
Adjustment to the in-game chat names notifications placement.
Fix for weapon reloads counting as speed reloads in certain circumstances.
Fix for stats accumulating towards leaderboards after prestiging.
Adjustment to challenges to unlock Camos for weapons.
Fix for round-based game modes, affecting Win/Loss ratios.
Implemented ability to unlock eSports Rule options in Private Match.
Alongside the patch notes, Condrey also commented on the recent criticism with lack of dedicated servers for multiplayer sessions, a feature that was promised ahead of the game's launch last week.
“Also, we've been asked several times about the status of dedicated server support,” Condrey writes. “Activision shared this statement earlier this week: Advanced Warfare employs game servers hosted at data centers globally on all platforms and listen servers as part of our proprietary matchmaking system. Our goal is to ensure the best possible connection and greatest gameplay experience regardless of location and time of day.”
Take that how you will, but hopefully we'll have a more solid answer on where the promised dedicated servers are, and when exactly they'll be implemented.
