Destiny 2 won’t have Dedicated Servers, Dev Explains Why

Destiny 2 is the most anticipated video game of this year because of the phenomenal success of the first game when it comes to sales. Destiny 2’s PvP had issues with lag and other problems and fans were very interested in knowing the changes the developer has done in the game.

It has come to our attention that the game will not support dedicated servers. However, it is not all that bad because a Bungie dev has explained their thought processes behind this move.

Matt Segur, engineering lead says, “Every activity in Destiny 2 is hosted by one of our servers. That means you will never again suffer a host migration during your Raid attempt or Trials match. This differs from Destiny 1, where these hosting duties were performed by player consoles and only script and mission logic ran in the data center. In Destiny 2, both the Mission Host and Physics Host will run in our data centers.”

He added, “We’ve invested heavily in new server infrastructure for Destiny 2, including using cloud servers for gameplay for the first time. We really believe this is the best model for all of Destiny 2’s varied cooperative and competitive experiences. Engineering will always involve tradeoffs and cost-benefit analysis, but as a team we’ve got no regrets about the unique technology we’ve built for Destiny 2.”

It is quite better than Destiny 1 but not a complete PvP experience that many PC games offer. However, Bungie has a good netcode so Destiny 2 should provide a great gaming experience.

Here are the PC features for the game. It includes a lot of nice things for PC gamers.
