Infinity Ward on Dedicated Servers & PC MW3

After interviewing Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling at E3, GameFront posted what he had to say about PC support in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, as he describes sessions with PC gamers to discuss the direction of the upcoming military shooter sequel. His comments include the possibility of support for dedicated servers, which was not included in Modern Warfare 2, though he could not be pinned down when asked if dedicated servers were confirmed, saying: "We’re having those discussions now. I don’t want to confirm, but we’re looking to support that as much as possible." Here is a bit on their plans for PC support:

That stuff comes a little later. I can’t confirm anything yet, but right now we’re having conversations about dedicated servers, mod tools and post launch support. I can’t give you an answer yet on what will be included. In Modern Warfare 3 we added IWnet, which was all about matchmaking–with the plan to eventually add in dedicated servers. My ideal philosophy on the PC is to have matchmaking for the “mass.” Have matchmaking for the guys who just want to jump in, hit “play game” and start playing. But let’s not lose that dedicated core audience that wants the dedicated server experience. We’re looking at ways to on how to incorporate that into Modern Warfare 3. We’ve been listening a lot to our PC guys who have been very vocal since Modern Warfare 2 about what they want to see come back to our versions of the franchise.

Answer? Promise dedicated servers "sometime after launch" and then never actually release them. Worked for Black Ops' mod tools, didn't it?
