Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Confirmed For Dedicated Servers on PC
Treyarch also confirms ranked matches for multiplayer mode.
The PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops III will get dedicated servers, developer Treyarch has confirmed. Posting on Twitter, Treyarch director of development Cesar ‘pcdev' Stastny said that the PC version of the game will "use 100% dedicated servers for all ranked matches."
This should come as little surprise, given that that Treyarch brought dedicated servers in for 2010's Call of Duty: Black Ops, as well as for the sequel Black Ops 2. Dedicated servers were also brought in for Call of Duty: Ghosts on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the last-generation consoles. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 also had dedicated servers, but they were unranked, which meant that the server administrator controlled all unlocks.

Stastny also confirmed that the game will ship with an adjustable field of view slider, as has been the case with previous Black Ops titles.
