The main focus of Black Ops 2 has been on the Xbox and PS3 versions, which has left a lot of PC version related questions unanswered. Luckily Treyarch has just released new information on the PC versions online security, matchmaking and dedicated servers:. Black Ops 2 PC is going to "feature" both matchmaking and dedicated servers, but not like in Modern Warfare 3. Last year's MW3's matchmaking was the only way to gain levels, but it was completely P2P Peer 2 Peer based, while the dedicated servers were unranked. The BO2 PC version is taking a step in the right direction, but it's still a bit of a hit and miss: there won't be dedicated servers available, but the matchmaking system will use them - this should in theory prevent majority of the hacks that are used in P2P matches.
