Uproar Over Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Statement

Share |

I’m not ready to pen this in the books as fact yet but there’s a BashandSlash podcast where community manager Rob Bowling stated that there is no delay but there will be no dedicated server support or mods for the PC version of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2." If this is true, it is a major setback for PC gamers.

Here’s the full rundown of highlights from the podcast, which is from PlanetCallofDuty:

  • We’re doing a lot on the backend to make the game accessible for everyone.
  • There is no delay for the PC version of MW2
  • There’s prestige mode
  • Jason West at the MP event, said that he was dead on, on the matchmaking servers. We’ve been building a system on the backend called IW.NET.
  • You are completely reliant on IW.NET. There are no server lists. There are no dedicated servers.
  • You have private matches where you can customize the game
  • You cannot put MW2 on a dedicated server.
  • This is the first time we’ve ever done something like this and the team has huge plans for what IW.NET develops into.
  • Customizing your game…you have quite a few options in a private match
  • You’re getting same game (as in Console), plus matchmaking and private match.
  • Server admin point-of view, NO DEDICATED SERVERS

There’s a petition up with several thousand signatures at PetitionOnline.

    They're replacing it with IW.net, which is Infinity Ward's matching system. From the podcast, it sounds like it's just like the Xbox matching system.

    No! Bad Infinity Ward! Very bad!

    On the other hand I save $60…. I guess…

    I just got a very bad taste in my mouth. COD has a rich mod community for the pc user. No way am I spending $60 on this game if multiplayer suffers.
