Call of Duty: Ghosts to feature dedicated servers on all platforms

Call of Duty: Ghosts developer Infinity Ward will offer dedicated servers for all versions of the game, said executive producer Mark Rubin on Twitter today.

Until now, the studio had only confirmed during Gamescom that the Windows PC and Xbox One versions will feature dedicated servers.

"Dedicated servers will be used on current-gen, next-gen and PC with Ghosts," said Rubin. He clarified that the game will use both dedicated and listen servers, with the choice depending on a user's proximity to a dedicated server.

"No matter where you are, the game will always be trying to give you the best online performance possible," said Rubin. In addition, Ghosts' matchmaking technology will put players in matches with "the best combined overall connectivity performance."

Rubin said in follow-up tweets that Infinity Ward is hoping to add a server browser and the ability to rent ranked servers after launch, as well as mod tools for the PC version, although he could not promise those features because the studio hasn't started working on them yet.

Call of Duty: Ghosts launches Nov. 5 on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U, Nov. 15 on PlayStation 4 and Nov. 22 on Xbox One.
