You might recall last month that David Brickley, a Rebellion senior producer, was asked directly, three times, to confirm dedicated server support in Alien vs. Predator, and wouldn't say yes or no. The studio's chief now officially confirms its presence.

Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Jason Kingsley, the CEO, said:

"Despite rumours, Rebellion has always been planning to support dedicated servers for Aliens vs Predator PC and we can now officially confirm that this is the case. Rebellion has always appreciated fan support. We're really looking forward to the release of Aliens vs Predator as much as you guys are!"

I'm not sure the earlier report was "rumour" as much as it just left a question unanswered. Regardless, you can expect dedicated servers in this game if that's how you roll in multiplayer.

I am wondering, a little, if Rebellion waiting to see how much hell Infinity Ward would catch for its decision to drop dedicated servers in Modern Warfare 2, then DICE cashing in on the controversy by vowing dedicated server support, and decided the latter was their better marketing option.

A smart move.
After the crap Modern Warfare 2 got for ditching them just makes other games look even better when they promise it.

Dedicated servers are free to them anyway, so its something that should never be taken out and overall has been something PC games are usually expected to have.

So its a smart move to confirm it to avoid any dissapointed fans and to gain new ones through those dissapointed by the likes of Modern Warfare 2.
Doesn't change a whole lot, but those looking forward to the game have something to be happy about.

I think it just goes to show that if something isn't broken, don't throw it away.
