Call of Duty: Ghosts will have dedicated servers across all platforms, it has been confirmed.

Infinity Ward head Mark Rubin revealed on Twitter that dedicated servers would be used on all current and next-gen consoles, as well as PC.

“In order to make sure that people have the best possible experience regardless of platform, location or connection, Ghosts will be using a hybrid system of dedicated servers and listen servers” he went on to say, “so no matter where you are the game will always be trying to give you the best online performance possible.

"There is also some great new tech in the matchmaking system that will place players in matches that have the best combined overall connectivity performance. Again these are just some of the things that are going into Call of Duty: Ghosts to give players a great online experience. Can’t wait to see you all online.”

Following the announcement, some of Rubin's sharper followers were quick to notice his failure to mention any of those consoles by name, particularly since dedicated Ghosts servers for the Xbox One were announced officially some time ago. This is almost certainly connected to the fact that publisher Activision has been in partnership with Microsoft since 2010 – when the publisher agreed to give Xbox 360 users first access to DLC – and the two companies' joint announcement that Ghosts would make use of the Xbox Live Cloud has been highlighted as an important aspect of Microsoft's next-gen console in the run up to the Xbox One's launch.

Twitter user Ahmet Yilmaz asked the producer if that indeed meant he could confirm there would be PlayStation 3 and 4 servers. Rubin responded “I can't call out other platforms by name but one might assume that from what I wrote.”

Earlier today we brought you news of NVIDIA's leaked Call of Duty: Ghosts system requirements and they certainly pack a punch.

Are you looking forward to the newest entry in the Call of Duty Franchise?

What do you think of Activision's agreement with Microsoft? Do partnerships like this have an impact on gamers?

Sweet, now I just need another rig to run a dedicated server 24/7 (as I did with CoD 4) :D

Didn't Cs:GO say they would have cross platform multiplayer?
