Black Ops 2 FOV to be capped at 80
Treyarch have tweeted that Black Ops 2 is going to have a maximum FOV of 80 - the same as the original CODBLOPS's multiplayer mode - on the grounds that anything higher will break things. That's an unfortunate number, with unusual fields of view being one of the leading causes of in-game motion sickness. It seems unlikely that Black Ops 2 will be doing more than other shooters to justify this claim, but this close to release, don't expect to see any last minute reprieve for higher numbers.
And don't ask me to raise the FOV cap. Max is 80. Thankyouverymuch. <3, -pcdev-

@gnomecast It is the same cap as Blackops mp, but now you can adjust fov in sp and zm too. > 80 breaks too much stuff so we had to cap it.
