Dude he's going to stab you

Mark Rubin, the Executive Producer of Call of Duty: Ghosts has forgotten how twitter works and has posted up a wall of text using one of those annoying twitlonger things… but I’m glad he did because he had some great news for us.

GHOSTS ONLINE CONNECTIVITY UPDATE: I wanted to give a quick update on some of the work that has been done to improve everyone’s online experience. We’ve already mentioned dedicated servers as part of the overall plan to improve connectivity. Dedicated servers will be used on current gen, next gen and PC with Ghosts. And, in order to make sure that people have the best possible experience regardless of platform, location or connection, Ghosts will be using a hybrid system of dedicated servers and listen servers. So no matter where you are the game will always be trying to give you the best online performance possible. There is also some great new tech in the matchmaking system that will place players in matches that have the best combined overall connectivity performance. Again these are just some of the things that are going into Call of Duty: Ghosts to give players a great online experience. Can’t wait to see you all online.”

He was asked further questions and apparently for some reason he cannot answer questions based on specific platforms but what he can say is that all version of Call of Duty: Ghosts will have dedicated servers. Now dedicated servers are great for PC gamers especially with local ISP’s like MWEB often hosting servers in our very own country but when it comes to consoles these servers often do not get hosted locally.

Which is why I’m hoping “listen servers” are what I think they are; basically servers that keep track of who is looking for a game and merging the guys in one region into a game even if no server exists.

But to be fair I really don’t know. Anyone else with some more knowledge around this care to share?

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

  • Admiral Chief of Rivia

    What about the Fish servers?

    • Downloadable content John

      I like mine served with chips

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Fish AI is the true innovation for next gen gaming!

    • SaintsRowNigri

      They’ll be okay. Just as long as you order some chips with that… And I am sure they thank you for your concern

    • Skyblue

      Like this?

  • MacDoodle

    I still want to have a manual way of choosing where I want to game, this has been a flaw since MW1, so many times I would search for local games and end up playing against a whole bunch of frogs 🙁

    • SaintsRowNigri

      Are frogs playing COD called Battletoads then?

      • MacDoodle

        Fucking gay battletoads whose mama’s…. err… yeah you get the picture

  • Meh

    Will there be one where my mom will be safe and I’m not gay?

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      Don’t be silly, such a world does not exist 😛

    • MacDoodle

      When you play CoD everyone is gay even your team mates

      • Unavengedavo (aka. Frik)

        Gay as in Happy, Merry, Cheerful, Jolly, Joyful?

        • MacDoodle

          If you happy and you know it clap your hands 😀

      • Downloadable content John

        Yes, but you are bestest

        • MacDoodle

          Dude you know it 😉

    • Otto_ki

      No Mother is save from COD.

      • SaintsRowNigri

        My mom thought Captain Price was sexy

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          Now I know your mom is gay… 🙁 Soap McTavish was the true hunk a love!

          • SaintsRowNigri

            Nope. It was the manly moustache…

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            A brovember worthy stache!

    • SaintsRowNigri

      Yes. It is called single player. 😛

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    Back in the day a dedicated server was a server that had no one playing on it and a listen server was a server that was run by someone on their own machine and also playing the game.

    So listen servers are probably going to be player created sessions from their own machines.

    • Ah okay, so basically I’ll be able to host local games if we have no local dedicated..

      That’s the best way for us locals I think

      • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

        That’s what I am reading from it anyway.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Is that a tweet? Hell’s bells 140 characters be damned… that’s a damn blog post. I can only hope that for nextgen…. Call of Duty finally dies (never to be resurrected). Enough is enough! The cloud is a lie. Xboned!

    • Downloadable content John

      Hear hear

  • Mark Treloar

    So still with the matchmaking nonsense.

  • RobertjG60

    Dedicated servers was an outright lie, they still have the matchmaking system

  • Thanks for your insight! I have tried the VPS in Australia and having a VPS really is beneficial. Am using dedicated server at Palcom Online. It works 24×7 instant support.
