Back when it was first released in 2007, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was one of the hottest-selling titles anywhere, not only for its more cinematic story but also for its multiplayer, which finally was able to kickstart the rivalry between Call of Duty and Battlefield. Many have beein wondering that will the dedicated servers support of Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered be returning? Well the Answer is yes.
According to Activision’s Modern Warfare Remastered FAQ, the answer to whether the game will have dedicated servers is a simple “Yes, it will.”
Previously, various console releases of the Modern Warfare games lacked dedicated servers, though PC players that had Modern Warfare 3 did eventually get them when it came out on that platform.
Dedicated servers are servers specifically dedicated to running a certain thing, such as the multiplayer of a game. This can cut down on traffic and therefore lag, which will allow the play to be faster and more seamless, and thus decrease the likelihood of unfair deaths (such as being shot through a wall or emptying a magazine into another player only to have them live and kill you because of lag.)
Now, with Call of Duty Infinite Warfare releasing on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Windows, dedicated servers appear to be a thing for all three platforms, which will help with the multiplayer experience in the game.
It will, however, take out the possibility of modding on player-run servers, so you’ll have to be playing the vanilla game. On the upside, player-run servers normally were also slow as a person also had to host the game and run the server, and the game would end if the host was suddenly dropped.
Modern Warfare Remastered will be released alongside Infinite Warfare when it releases on November 4 of this year on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Windows PC. If you pre-order the Legacy or Deluxe editions of Infinite Warfare, you will also get Modern Warfare Remastered for free.
