Infinity Ward and Activision have confirmed that the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not just have cross-platform support, but also come with dedicated game servers from launch.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released worldwide for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 25 for US$60.
