Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops will have dedicated servers for the PC version of the shooter.

Speaking with PC Gamer, he confirmed it will contain the feature in the game, unlike last year’s Call of Duty title, Modern Warfare 2.

“I think dedicated servers are excellent. I don’t see any reason not to see them unless… well, I just don’t see any reason not to.

“It seems people like them and we’re excited about what we’re doing right now.”

He also expressed his support of dedicated servers in games.

“We do work very hard to reconcile the desire to manipulate and modify those dedicated servers with offering them the persistent experience and benefits that the console system provides,” he said.

“We’re working very hard to marry those two things, so people can run dedicated servers and also participate in the communal experience the console players get to have, given they’re all on first-party servers”

Call of Duty: Black Ops releases on November 9 for PS3, 360, PC and Wii.
