This has been the number one request from the community and we are excited to finally be able to make this announcement,

We are also happy to announce that our team of programmers has already done a first successful internal test back in November. We still have a long way to go before fully migrating to dedicated servers and will keep you posted on our milestones as we progress.
The dedicated servers are announced to come out summer of next year. So expect it at around June – September.
