Infinity Ward appears to have dumped dedicated servers for the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 in favour of its own proprietary matchmaking service. According to IW's Robert Bowling, speaking about 1 hour 40 minutes into the BASH podcast thanks Kotaku , the new service will be called IWNet and is part of the developer's attempts to make the game "very equal on every platform". When asked to confirm that this meant no dedicated servers, Bowling replied, to stunned silence from the PC fans running the podcast, "Correct. Asked whether this meant each player's PC would have to host other players, he said: "As far as I know. But as far as getting down into the technicals of all IWNet, I'm hoping we can get some, you know, get some of the tech guys into some stuff later on to explain it in depth. Bowling was coy about other specifics. Asked about support for custom content and modifications, all he would say is that he wasn't certain about the future of IWNet. But for customising your game to playing how you want, you're going to have quite a few options in private match to do all the typical stuff you would do - remove things, or change things to make it more realistic, changing health variables, or damage variables and spawn, and all that stuff can be done via private match. One of the chaps on the BASH podcast then tried to pin Bowling down about the dedicated server issue, suggesting that perhaps a wily operator could buy another copy of the game, install a meaty graphics card in his dedicated server and still run the game for other people to connect to as if the server were a fellow client. But Bowling either didn't hear this properly or didn't reply to it directly, as he reiterated the previous point about graduating to IWNet for "accessibility" reasons.
