Infinity Ward’s Mark Rubin has just giving clarification and confirmation via Twitter that dedicated servers will be coming to all current and next-gen consoles as well as PCs.

GHOSTS ONLINE CONNECTIVITY UPDATE: I wanted to give a quick update on some of the work that has been done to improve everyone’s online experience. We’ve already mentioned dedicated servers as part of the overall plan to improve connectivity. Dedicated servers will be used on current gen, next gen and PC with Ghosts. And, in order to make sure that people have the best possible experience regardless of platform, location or connection, Ghosts will be using a hybrid system of dedicated servers and listen servers. So no matter where you are the game will always be trying to give you the best online performance possible. There is also some great new tech in the matchmaking system that will place players in matches that have the best combined overall connectivity performance. Again these are just some of the things that are going into Call of Duty: Ghosts to give players a great online experience. Can’t wait to see you all online.

Mark Rubin further clarified that he is not allowed to mention any platform by name (presumbly due to the MSFT/ATVI contract), but that PS3/PS4 will be getting dedicated servers.

UPDATE: Candice Capen has tweeted confirming that the PS3 version will be getting dedicated servers, which leads us to say that all platforms are getting, even though Mark Rubin said he cannot mention each by name.

  1. Playing on PC during Black Ops 2 with this system (Match Making + Dedis) is so great. You never have to worry about a hacked host, or host migrations. The game just plays out regardless of how many people rage quit. I can also count the amount of bad connection games on one hand in over 18 days of play. Assuming it is as solid as the implementation on BO2 PC it’s going to be awesome.

    • Have you ever played CoD1 through CoD5 and BO1? They all had true dedicated servers and a server browser. It’s nothing to hope to turn out well.

      • I have played every PC release since CoD2. BO2 has been the best experience yet. Combines the good things about dedies (Solid connection with no player hosts) with the good things of match making (playing with friends in a party, no player admins). I have never had any connection issues in ANY CoD (MW2 and MW3 included) so I am never worried about that.

  2. if the pc version had fov slider, i could say that’s amazing but IW is not listening what the pc community wants, they could get more money if they add a simple fov slider

    • I asked them to confirmed 100%, but they keep on saying that they are not allowed to mention each platform by name. So, I guess Wii U is getting it.

  3. Also he said this to someone:
    ”…Hoping to add server browser and rent-able ranked server once we get through launch crunch. no info yet”.

  4. Was on the edge about getting X1 or PS4 because of Ghosts, now definitely getting PS4, because I was leaning to that in the first place, but now I’ve got that extra reassurance from IW with Ghosts.

  5. Praise the lord (if anyone can find the GIF and tell me how to upload it so I can use it for future comments)
    But I think this will do for now…

  6. Actually Sony is teaming up with rackspace to help deploy Sony’s openstack cloud so we will have dedicated servers probably just as good as XB1

  7. this is great news. a lot of ppl were getting xbone bcuz of the dedicated servers. glad all platforms will have this!

  8. For those PS4 guys and unconfirmed-dedicated-servers-on-PS4: I think it’s pretty probably that the PS4 is getting dedi. If the PS3 is, why won’t the PS4?

  9. I’m calling it right now guys right now even dedicated servers will be timed exclusive. Get it first on Xbox and 3 months later on Playstation.

  10. This will stop my anxiety of buying XBone at launch. Why buying a new console if Xbox 360 and PC will have dedi-servers such thing I wanted the most in CoD.

  11. Literally no reason to buy an Xbox Done.

    Unless you’re some sort of retard with a serious case of brand loyalty.

    • You mean except for the fact that it’s going to perform better for games then current gen xbox, multi-task, a ton of servers for games, easier start-up. It also has 200 gbs more memory. Along with early DLC on COD and BF. Plus I prefer the way the Xbox dashboard and etc. is setup. Lets not forget Titanfall either.

        • How bout the fact that more big clans play on Xbox than Playstation, or the fact that it is better for entertainment features too. Plus, I like the Xbox controller way more then PS controllers. Also, calling someone retarded over an opinion of a consoles makes you look like a real asshole, and yet I’m the one able to use proper grammar and spelling in my comments unlike your dumb ass.

          • xbox is full of shit ppl like u and thats why ppl play it bcus its easier
            u also have severe autism

          • Before you go around saying people have severe autism then learn to punctuate, type out, and capitalize shit. Your typing makes me think your an eight year old piece of shit.

          • Before you go around saying people have autism learn to actually type things with actual spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. Till then I’m going to have to say your probably some eight old kid, who is trying to act like he is some big shit, when in all reality he is just a piece of trash. Also, for your information I have mostly advanced courses and A’s or B’s in all of them.

          • All you put is real you dumb piece of shit. Learn to use actual GRAMMAR SO PEOPLE CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR TRYING TO TYPE. Damn do you know how fucking dumb you seem. Use actual English, like an adult. Oh wait, thats right your eight, now go hit puberty and grow the fuck up.

  12. Xbox One might be the only console that will have Dedicated Servers for CoD: Ghosts? I think I might just invest in an XBOX One… what’s that? All current/next gen consoles and the PC are going to have Dedicated Servers? Looks like I don’t have to get the XBOX One anymore! (<– ignorant gamer logic). Really guys? Because of one game? I feel like I'm losing brain cells reading half of these comments. I mean really, if you think about it, $100 bucks more is not that big a deal, not that much more money… that is… if you have a full time job. It's great that IW is doing this for us, but don't waste everyone's time typing the exact same thing in the comments that 500 other people have already said. You guys were most likely going to get the PS4 anyways whether or not it had Dedis for Ghost, you just felt the need to say something stupid like one game decides whether or not you buy a console. Grow up people, and enjoy the game.
