Monday, 18th June 2012 03:53 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Treyarch’s director of technology Cesar Stastny has confirmed the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will support dedicated servers.

Statsny broke the news quite quietly on Twitter.

Last time we heard from Treyarch in May, it was cautiously keen to support the eSports friendly setup but couldn’t commit.

The decision not to support dedicated servers with Modern Warfare 2 was a major sticking point for the Call of Duty series, and Treyarch won plenty of good will be supporting the tech with the original Black Ops.

Black Ops 2 is expected in November on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Thanks, GameInformer.

    So yet another Black Ops game that you can’t just jump right into.

    I think the goodwill they won was mostly with a vocal minority. People didn’t play Black Ops for very long on the PC. They went straight back to Modern Warfare 2 within a couple of months.

    And they’re still there. It currently has twice as many players.

    This is the first CoD i’m actually keeping an eye on since CoD 4. Will be interesting to see how well done this game is.
