Command & Conquer 4 lead designer Sam Bass has said that the latest game in the long-running real-time strategy series won't support dedicated servers.
Speaking to Destructoid, Bass said this was because of a progression system that relied on centralised internet storage.
"So if you go to another machine - friend's house, internet café - whatever, you can login with your profile and all the stuff you've unlocked is accessible to you there. It all lives on a server so you can't really do dedicated servers with that," he said.
Destructoid said that also went for LAN (local area network) games.
