Hello PC gamers. How are you today, on this lovely day? Are you still seething from the Modern Warfare 2 dedicated server debacle? If you’ve managed to calm down a bit, I’m afraid I may have some news that’ll get your tempers flaring again.
id’s John Carmack has incited gamer rage by saying that the company doesn’t have plans to support a dedicated servers for their upcoming game, the now aptly titled Rage. â€œIt’s not cast in stone yet, but at this point no, we don’t think we will have dedicated servers,â€ he says. â€œThe great thing.â€ he said, taking a stab at Activision, â€œis we won’t have to be a pioneer on thatâ€¦We’ll see how it works out for everyone else.â€
This is ,of course, a worrying trend for PC gamers. If developers keep moving towards console-centric means of play, what’s the point of even playing on a PC?
Thankfully DICE have pledged to continue supporting dedicated servers with their upcoming Battlefield Bad Company 2, so that’s something. I guess.
