On PC Black Ops II

PC Gamer grills Mark Lamia about Call of Duty: Black Ops II, asking the studio head at Treyarch about the just-revealed first-person shooter sequel, focusing on questions about the PC edition. This doesn't yield a lot of concrete answers, as he effectively dodges the question about dedicated servers, saying "we havenít yet announced exactly what that setup is going to be." He does speak of how this uncertainty related to cheat prevention, and how their aggressive development cycle does not include time for beta testing, but also defers questions about LAN support, though he does speak of eSports support, which would obviously benefit from things like LAN support and dedicated servers.

They can't afford any delays because the games alternate year to year
and why is that our problem?
I wasn't trying to justify it. It was just an observation of their business model. However, as long as people keep buying it they have absolutely no incentive to change. BF3 was the only competitor but EA managed to fuck that up by boycotting Steam - still, they at least take their time and are a lot more progressive when it comes to pushing hardware, especially on PC.

I really wish Valve would increase the pace at which they put games out, especially FPS games. Even though they haven't pushed the graphical envelope since HL2 they still manage to achieve a lot with limited resources, as both TF2 and Portal 2 demonstrated.
