Adding full cooperative play to the main storyline in Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 would have "ruined the experience," Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling says in an interview with games site VG247. Bowling says before developers created Spec Ops, the co-op mode with separate missions, the game allowed for multiple players to tackle the campaign together. However, Bowling tells VG247 it didn't fit Infinity Ward's plans for the story. "It really broke the cinematic experience, took the immersion out of it, out of the story and the pacing and everything we'd spent so long crafting," he says in the interview. The Spec Ops mode will feature missions that two players can fight together either online or in split-screen. As players complete the series of time trial and objective-based endeavours, they increase their rank to unlock additional missions. The game releases for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 10. Readers, do you like Spec Ops mode, or should co-op be incorporated into the campaign?

I don't agree with IW. Co-op is a good thing to have. And they are about to NOT add Dedicated Servers.

Should have an unlockable coop mode once the user has experienced & completed the single player campaign.

It's actually , they don't want to add things Treyarch thinks up. But I agree with them
