More news today for Modern Warfare 2 from Infinity Ward that fans of the series did not want to hear. Infinity Ward’s Mackey McCandlish and Ryan Lastimosa had a online discussion with the Best Buy community.
First, the Infinity Ward developers answered fans on the matter of considering dedicated server in the near future:
“We feel the PC game is great in it’s current form. We put a lot of work into IWnet in an effort to make the PC experience better for our users. We believe MW2 is better than CoD4:MW. The reason iw.net exists is to improve the gameplay for our users. If there is a need for something more in the future we will address as needed. Our goal is to provide the best experience for our users, so nothing is ever “off the table”. We are always evaluating our options.”
Then they were asked on how Infinity Ward felt about the petition for the dedicated server:
“All I can say is that we changed it to make it a better and easier experience. Also, not all of the [178,000] names on that list are legit. 402 signed it 4 times I heard.”
Finally, the community asked about adding more players to the match instead of the normal 18 players, which surprisingly the developers said that the game will capped out at 18 players.
“Games cap out at 9v9. The software has great latency tolerance.”
These specification will be standard for all consoles and PC of course. With just a few more days till launch of probably the biggest FPS game of the year, What do you think about all this and will you be buying the game?
