Moreover, publisher Activision has addressed queries regarding Advanced Warfare’s supposed dedicated servers. “Advanced Warfare employs game servers hosted at data centers globally on all platforms and listen servers as part of our proprietary matchmaking system.

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare represents the eleventh primary installment in the Call of Duty series, and the first one developed primarily by Sledgehammer Games, after Neversoft was merged into Infinity Ward in May 3rd, 2014 and was officially made defunct on July 10th, 2014. In 2054, a terrorist organization known as the KVA initiates the first global terrorist attack in history by simultaneously destroying the nuclear reactors of developed countries around the globe, including the United States. As the result, Private Military Corporations (PMCs) have become the dominant armed forces for countless nations, and represent the first line of defense against this new enemy. You play as Jack Mitchell (voiced by Troy Baker) – a former U.S. marine who has joined one such PMC – called Atlas – who takes on different kinds of assignments across the globe from the company’s CEO – Jonathan Irons (voiced by Kevin Spacey) – as he begins his war as the promoter of democracy all over the world to change the global balance of power.
