Modern Warfare 3 will again not offer dedicated servers

Written by David Stellmack

Actually, it really is that much of a surprise
Whispers over the last couple of days from the shadows seem to confirm what we already suspected: Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 will not be offering dedicated server support. The multiplayer support will apparently function pretty much the same as what we have already seen in Modern Warfare 2.

Many rumors were floating around that the MW3 server support would be closer to what we saw in call of Duty Black Ops, which offers at least some limited capacity dedicated server support. Apparently, this isn’t to be; and the Infinity Ward crew will not be adopting what Treyarch used in Black Ops.

The question of dedicated server support continues to plague a number of multiplayer FPS game releases. Most recently, developers at DICE and Kaos Studios both came out in favor of dedicated server support providing a better and more robust gaming experience. Kaos’s recent release Homefront offered dedicated server support, and DICE has always offered dedicated server support for the Battlefield franchise and intends to continue this trend going forward.

Oh my god... I mean common, why can't they learn from there mistakes? Now all were going to see is Hacked matches with boosting, hackers, lag and among many other things. It's like they take 1 steps back and 2 steps back again... well more like 1,000 steps back.

Bring on Battlefield 3 I say!

Aww...and here goes the little bit of hope that it could be a decent game, at least in MP.
Oh well.

You are going to have to start reporting on the games that actually include dedicated servers, because I currently can't really think of any modern game where you can download the dedicated server and run it on any PC you like.

^Even console ports like Crysis 2 have it...

They only look at sales/money. They have lots of those even on the PC, it was the most played game on steam with over 90k players (most of them hypocrites) for like 3-4 months, it took about 6+ months for it to get dethroned. To them the lack of dedicated servers and the problems that came with were not mistakes in their mind.

So I will join you in saying: BATTLEFIELD 3!!!!!

It was the most played game on Steam servers for a bit because other players were playing games on dedicated servers :)

Man, lots of whiners today!

Don't have a job? Get a server, install that MW3 software and ask for a monthly fee for clean matches.

MS offers you a way to start a business and none of you got the message.

I have a feeling that there will be more players on BF3 than MW3. 64 player maps and dedicated servers? I'll take it!

On a side note fed44 is spot on. Just because they say "dedicated servers" doesn't mean it's an open dedicated server install. Bl0bb3r totally misses the point. I have a rack at a colo with 63 IP's and a dedicated synchronous 50mb/s low latency pipe. Why would I PAY to rent a server when I could easily setup a server that would blow any rental out of the water?!

All i can say is if they keep FKing with the pc community they will pay. Thats why Battlefield 3 will rip them a new one they have no chance.

@ultrasparc, what point did I miss exactly? You weren't clear on that.

You got a server? Good. All I said was that MS gave guys like you a chance to turn those servers into profitable assets. Charge (= ask for) a small monthly fee (= profit) for access to clean matches and people won't say no in the absence of ms dedicated servers.
