This morning, a video leaked of a third-person mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, thanks to early copies of the game being sold wherever. Although it was a given, Infinity Ward’s come right out and confirmed it. It’s limited, though.

“3rd Person is a new playlist mode in Multiplayer,” Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling said. “So you can play your favorite playlists [or] game types, like Team Deathmatch just standard, or in Hardcore mode ([with] limited HUD and increased bullet damage) or in the new 3rd Person mode, which means you and everyone in the game is in 3rd person.”

Third-person isn’t something you can toggle in and out of, Bowling explained. Everybody you play in third-person multiplayer with will also be playing in third-person.

“When you’re in a 3rd Person playlist you can’t toggle in and out, you’re always in 3rd person,” he says, adding “You can’t toggle 3rd person view on or off in a standard game type either, people in 3rd person can’t play with people in 1st person, they’re entirely different game modes. This is just another way to play the game.”

Thanks, Kotaku.
