After ditching dedicated servers for MW2 due to service quality concerns, it seems Activision is bringing them back for MW3. Which is nice.

Dedicated PC servers are a go for the third instalment in Activision’s slightly-popular Modern Warfare franchise, that’s according to an employee of Beachhead Studios – the company responsible for developing online stat-tracking service service, Call of Duty Elite.

Speaking to Eurogamer at gamescom, Noah Heller of Beachhead said of the decision:

“The big announcement today is that we’re supporting dedicated servers for PC, which is really cool.”

Cool, indeed.

Modern Warfare 3 launches for PC, 360 and PS3 on November 8.
