One of the things that has plagued the Wii U release of Black Ops 2 is the fact that there are no dedicated servers. Matchmaking is done by relying on local hosts and shoddy internet connections, which can lead to a frustrating time playing the game online. It looks like executive producer Mark Rubin wants to clear that up for users, as he revealed on Twitter that all platforms will have dedicated servers for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Previously it was rumored that the Xbox One version of the game would be the only one with dedicated servers.
“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.”
This should please those of you who complained about the terrible matchmaking in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and it should solve several of the issues people had with the game. Will you be picking up this installment of Call of Duty? Let us know in the comments below.
