He went on to list some of the features gamers can expect in the PC version of the game, launching on November 6, including 100% ranked dedicated servers and 2-player split screen.

In the post, Rafacz also re-stated Black Ops 3’s PC minimum specifications, which were shared earlier this year, adding that recommended specs are still being evaluated as the studio adds more optimizations and advanced graphics features. “Rest assured that our goal is to provide the best performance across the widest range of machines possible,” he said.
