Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Will Use Dedicated Servers For All Platforms
Cross-play is also coming to the multiplayer experience.
Infinity Ward seems to be working hard to cement Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as more than just a reboot. The developers are going all-in with revitalizing the game's multiplayer, offering new weapon customization tools, and more. Continuing on that trend, Modern Warfare will feature dedicated servers across all platforms.
The news comes from Game Informer's September cover story, which reports that, alongside cross-platform play, Modern Warfare will have "dedicated servers for everyone" when it launches on October 25 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Modern Warfare isn't the only game in the long-running franchise to feature dedicated servers, though. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare also had dedicated servers when it was released in 2007. So, too, did Ghosts, Black Ops, and World at War. Back in October 2018, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 received a silent server update that improved stability, increasing the tick rate in response to community backlash over slow server speed.
Also out of Gamer Informer, Modern Warfare will feature a cheeky throwback to the '90s in the form of Tamagunchis, virtual pets that need the same level of attention as the Tamagotchi but with a twist: These virtual pets feed off your kills instead of your constant love and adoration.
