Call of Duty: Ghosts will have Dedicated Servers for all Platforms
Infinity Ward have confirmed that dedicated servers will be available for Call of Duty: Ghosts on all platforms. It had previously only been confirmed that the Xbox One would receive the service, but every platform will now benefit from it.
Infinity Ward’s Mark Rubin stated on Twitter:
“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. “
This move means that Call of Duty will no longer be using the peer-to-peer system it previously used. By moving to dedicated servers, it should make for a much better overall multiplayer experience by reducing lag time for example.
