Activision Defends Modern Warfare 2 PC

With the news that the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 would lack dedicated servers, console commands, lean, and among many other features that were available in the first Modern Warfare, many PC gamers are unhappy with the 'dumbing down' of the sequel.

In fact, many of you have commented that you have cancelled your preorders in response to the design decisions made by Infinity Ward. But Activision, publisher of what will be one of the largest titles of the year, doesn't seem all that worried about the backlash from PC gamers.

"We're, of course, watching this very carefully and paying attention to it," Activision president Mike Griffith said in response to a financial analyst, as noted by Kotaku. "But we're not overly concerned about it."

"One of the problems with our PC SKUs in the past is that it has not been as friendly a consumer experience in terms of matchmaking and online play as the consoles have allowed it to be," he added. "Our solution here improves that consumer experience overall by a significant margin. And so we think that the benefits we will see are going to far outweigh any negatives that seem to be surfacing."

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be launching on November 11. Check out the launch trailer below.
