Today at Gamescom Activision confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will have dedicated servers for the PC version. This is part of an effort to show PC gamers that Activision is serious about the PC platform.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 did not have dedicated servers on PC, which caused some controversy a couple years ago. Generally, dedicated servers provide a smoother online experience and allow more players to join a match. PC cheaters are a definite concern for Activision. Representatives said it is actively working on solutions and won’t ship Modern Warfare 3 without being able to ensure a fair fight for players.
