Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 PC is simultaneously developed with the console version; won’t be a port

E3 is just around the corner and we can – hopefully – expect more news about the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Although Treyarch has not revealed anything ground-breaking yet, despite the DX11 support, we are happy to report today that the PC version of Black Ops 2 won’t be a simple port from the console version, as a dedicated PC team is working on it.
When a fan asked whether PC gamers would be getting a console port of Black Ops 2, Treyarch’s director of technology, Cesar Stastny, responded and said that wasn’t the case:
“pc version is developed by a dedicated pc team simultaneously with the other platforms”
In addition, Stastny reassured fans that the game is built from the ground up to catch cheaters. It’s pretty obvious that Treyarch is trying to limit the amount of cheaters, something that plagued every COD and Battlefield game. And even though fans are not sure whether they should trust Treyarch or not, Stastny said that they are trying to improve their ability to detect and ban:
“Every popular pc title is hacked upon release. We are improving our ability to detect and ban based on lessons learned on blackops.”
As said, we might have some more news about the PC version of Black Ops 2 in the coming days, so stay tuned for more!
