With the revelation from Infinity Ward that Modern Warfare 2 has dropkicked dedicated servers for PC versions, developer DICE has come out in favour of them to reassure fans.
DICE executive producer KM Troedsson says whatever "secures a better online experience" will be included in their games, and gives a huge 'FTW' thumbs up to dedicated servers.
It was Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling that dished the news of for Modern Warfare 2, leaving PC modders left in the cold. You'll be "completely reliant" on IWNet, a match hosting system they've put together. PC gamers have become upset.
"Dedicated servers FTW. What ever secures a better online experience is a given for us," Troedsson. DICE are busy working on Battlefield: Bad Company 2 which releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC next year on March 2nd, 2010. Obviously it supports dedicated.
This twittering jab comes at a bad time for developer Infinity Ward, who are now going to have to on the defensive about their decision to remove a long time PC tradition. A very similar ruckus kicked off over Blizzard's Diablo III news that you must connect with Battle.net.
Should Infinity Ward back peddle their 'no dedicated' decision, or stick with their guns?
