In a recent interview with UK gaming mag PC Zone, Treyarch head Mark Lamia announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops
-- unlike the last Call of Duty
game on PC -- will feature dedicated servers for PC players. "I think dedicated servers are excellent. I don't see any reason not to see them unless ... well, I just don't see any reason not to," Lamia responded when asked about Black Ops
' PC iteration, reports CVG
Covering his bases (and likely not trying to insult Infinity Ward's reasoning
behind not supporting dedicated servers), Lamia added, "We do work very hard to reconcile the desire to manipulate and modify those dedicated servers with offering them the persistent experience and benefits that the console system provides ... so people can run dedicated servers and also participate in the communal experience the console players get to have, given they're all on first-party servers."
And with that, it would seem that Treyarch will give us a chance to officially leap through the air
while raining an unlimited supply of explosives on the ground below us when the game arrives this November
