Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling says that post-release support “major focus” for the team once Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is released on November 8. Gamerzines spotted Bowling’s comments on Twitter, where he said that players can expect “exceptional post-launch support” and “constant patches” for Modern Warfare 3′s multiplayer.

Bowling says that fan feedback on Modern Warfare 2′s multiplayer has motivated the team to provide better support for the sequel. Modern Warfare 2′s multiplayer suffered numerous hacks and cheats when it came out in 2009, and Infinity Ward were criticised for taking too long to patch up new exploits. Hopefully Modern Warfare 3′s multiplayer will be more secure. For more on the next Call of Duty game, check out last week’s huge Modern Warfare 3 info-leak. There’s also a shiny new Modern Warfare 3 site, which contains the four teaser trailers Activision released over the weekend.

They're so called still in talks about it according to Bowling. Fact is if they offer the PC customers the same as console customers then there is gonna be a lot of pissed PC customers.

Here is a list of features from the PC version that i would like to see, without these the game will be a no buy from me....

Dedicated servers from GSP of choice, mod tools as close to launch as possible, effective anticheat, console with full CVAR control with the obvious ones being locked, prone, lean, fully laid out multiplayer maps instead of parts of SP being used, the COD elite service actually offering something worth paying for, independance from Steam and a less than £40 price tag.

Either Infinity Ward is simply putting up a "smoke and mirrors" cover to get more sales, or they're legitimately scared of what BF3 could do to the PC FPS market.

Good. I like a little competition. :)

thats because we are gonna get another unfinished beta of a port... they will have to patch it for months just like Black Ops to get it running decent for us. I'm tired of PC ports that blow chunks. They can claim they will give "exceptional post-launch support", but I'm tired of the BS and can't believe anything these retarded devs say anymore.

What year do you think this is? 2007? Last game that had all that was COD4...

Not quite, kotaku claimed it wasn't having dedicated servers. Robert Bowling has said directly a few times on twitter and through articles that they haven't decided yet. In the link below he says the plan for IWNET was to add dedicated eventually but get matchmaking first.

I'm holding onto the slim chance they are coming.

Read above post.....

seriously if you believe about that "eventually" part...you really deserve to have your money stolen from you.

They said if the IWNET p2p system is not good, they will add dedicated servers.....
Black Ops - Mod support?...How long that take? Is it even out yet?.

Look how long they even took time to patch the game...

Do you honestly really believe that bull****?

Support a dev team that actually supports the community...

What post? The one dated 2nd of June or my link dated 8th of June?

No money stolen, I'm not buying it unless they 100% confirm dedicated servers. Just saying it hasn't been flat out denied yet.

I actually preferred the IWNet system with MW2 because I could actually play on the same team as my friends. Black ops dedicated server support was garbage, on ranked servers you had no control over team assignments and the server browser often didn't even function. Not to mention most of the servers I have a good ping to are "24/7 nuketown" crap.

I wanted to play MW2 again but I haven't been able to connect to any matches in months. Is the community for MW2 gone by now? I may just go back to playing Counterstrike. :p
