In the wake of the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops, Treyarch have announced that the game is very much a "true PC title" and the developer team has "never wavered" in regards to including dedicated servers, a little something the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 lacked.
"We never went away from dedicated servers," said Cesar Stastny, head of PC Development at Treyarch. "We had dedicated servers in our last title, we had planned on dedicated servers for our subsequent title all along, so we haven't actually wavered on that at all.
"We are a PC developer. I've been running a dedicated PC team since the beginning of this project. We had one last project. We are making a true PC title here and I think it's a really important platform for our studio, and I'm also really thrilled that we can support the PC community as much as we can."
Mod tools are also another commodity that will be made available after the launch of the game although Treyarch has yet to nail down a release date.
Call of Duty: Black Ops will be out for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, even the Wii, come November 9.
