A post on the Call of Duty Community Website outlines details on PC online security, matchmaking and servers in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Treyarch's upcoming military shooter sequel. Here's a handy summary of key points courtesy of One Of Swords, where there's also a discussion of some of the negative backlash this has inspired: All servers are dedicated servers, used for public matchmaking and league play. There will be servers located around the globe. You cant rent a dedicated server; theyre just free for your use. Anti-cheat is handled via VAC + Treyarchs own proprietary tech working in tandem. Treyarch has a full-time dedicated anti-cheat team to police the servers. Server files will not be made available to the public. Treyarch runs them. Mods will not be supported.
