Battlefield 3 To Have Dedicated Servers

DICE has confirmed that their upcoming shooter title, Battlefield 3, will indeed have dedicated servers.

Speaking with Game Informer, DICE's Patrick Bach stated why there would not be any mod tools released for the game.
”We will not deliver mod tools in the way that we delivered them for Battlefield 2,” he said.

“Creating mod tools today — dumbing them down — takes a lot of energy and what we are discussing more every day is, ‘Where do we put our focus?’

“Right now our focus is to create the best possible multiplayer, single-player, and co-op game — the core game of Battlefield 3. We’re still discussing how we handle modifications of any kind.”
DICE announced earlier this week that the PC will be the lead platform for the game. Bach stated DICE
“won’t make it for console and port it to PC — that’s not how we do things.

“We’re focusing on PC first, and then we fiddle with it to fit it onto consoles.”
Battlefield 3 is out on the PC, 360, and PS3 in the fall.
