If they change it into FPS no one will play it. We want Rainbow six to stay the same!
Rainbow Six was originally FPS wasnt it?
^^ Er? Rainbow has always been a FPS. It has a TP cover mechanic and then they added the option to play it in total TPV later on in the series. It wasn't well realized though and was pretty detrimental to the overall quality of the gameplay.
Rainbow will probably lose more fans if it goes full TPV, just because that's not what it ever was.
I could go for it though, if it was done well. I mean, you get FPV anyway when you hold the aim switch (not sights/scope) in most. Can't imagine it would be hard to make an option to set that as the default view.
Gotta fully build around the TPV if it's going to be included though.

for the night is dark and full of terrors
However you're correct when it comes to the GR series, it originally started off as a FP Shooter only, until GR2 (console), Then PC keep the FP view and console kept the TP view.
Having the ability to use both or stick with which ever one you like, can only be a plus in my book. If they intend on going back to their roots, that would be the way to go.
The series started fading when Ubisoft bought RSE up and started changing everything that originally made it popular.

Check out this footage of my favourite mission in the original RS and you'll see at 1:21 in the video the player finally uses the TP view to retrive the data from the PC, just so he can keep an eye on the door!
I loved this game along with Rogue Spear, I had some fond memories playing pvp on MSZone. Those 2 games are my all time favorite games of all time!
