Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has told GamerZines that vehicles will not play a part in Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer.
"We never put vehicles in multiplayer," he told the site. "Our focus is on fast-paced infantry combat, where you're never reliant on transportation. What we do have is expanded Killstreak Rewards now, some of which are user-controlled.
"For example, where you previously could call in UAV, Airstrikes, and Helicopter Support but had no control on how helpful they were, there are many more options which allow you to take control of the gunner or control its success a bit more for a limited time. Such as the AC130 gunship where you can fire any of the three weapons on it during its limited time in the air."
More from this interview is expected to land on GamerZines tomorrow.
Modern Warfare 2 is out November 10.
