Rebellion mum on dedicated servers for Aliens vs. Predator

Wednesday, 28th October 2009 15:59 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Rebellion’s David Brickley’s keeping his lip zipped regarding whether or not the PC version of Aliens vs. Predator will have dedicated servers or not.

Speaking with CVG, the game’s producer was repeatedly asked whether dedicated servers would be used for the game, but he dodged the question each time.

“The one thing we can say is obviously running an operation like that is monumentally expensive,” said Brickley. “For the period the original was up, people who played that game got an incredible experience.

“You know what the internet’s like. We’re obviously used to getting things for free over the years. I guess on our side the thing we’re focusing on is whatever your set-up at home, you get the best possible experience from it. We’re just trying to use our time and resources wisely.

“The game is still quite a way from release so I guess there are other things to be determined during that time.”

Maybe it just hasn’t been decided yet.

    I predict that AvP will be a half arsed console port with limited visual options and shitty match-making.
