Yesterday, GameSync.net reported on rumours that Modern Warfare 2 will have a third person mode, based on leaked gameplay footage. Infinity Ward has since confirmed this but said that the feature will be limited to the multiplayer mode only.
Infinity Ward’s creative strategist Robert Bowling told Kotaku that the third person mode is simply another game mode like Team Deathmatch. Third person mode players will only be able to play with third person mode users and there is no option to toggle in and out of the third person view.
