Confirmed: Ranked Dedicated Servers for #BlackOps2

For example, Modern Warfare 2 from Infinity Ward lacked dedicated server support, while Black Ops from Treyarch included it. Last year’s Modern Warfare 3 from Infinity Ward/Sledgehammer Games supported the feature, but the servers weren’t actually ranked (meaning leveling and unlocks weren’t available).
Regardless, Black Ops 2 will allow you to host your own dedicated servers (as silly of rules as they might have) starting November 13 this year when the game launches.
