32-player MP in Modern Warfare 3 - report

Bomb Mode also spotted.

At least some of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer modes will support 32 players, according to leaked gameplay footage.

As reported by SFX-360, a clip of an anonymous user cycling through the game's multiplayer menus popped up on YouTube yesterday. It's since been removed but not before someone took notes.

Though there could of course be more in the finished game, 13 maps were sighted: Carbon, Coast, Dome, Exchange, Hardhat, Interchange, Lambeth, Meteora, Mogadishu, Paris, Plaza, Radar and Seatown.

Some matches will apparently support 32 players, up from 18 in Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2.

Finally, the as-yet unannounced Bomb Mode was also sighted in the 25 second clip, though it's unclear what exactly that entails.

Activision issued a standard "no comment on rumour and speculation" response. Maybe we'll find out more at the Call of Duty XP event taking place in Los Angeles later this week.
