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.
