If this is true I will be one very happy person. Here's the exact words from a Raven Dev. From an Ausgamers interview,
AusGamers: Is there ever a conversation to just dump aim-assist?
Eric: [laughs] There’s always conversations like that. One of the things we’ve done is that quick-scoping is not in the game. And that was a conscious choice, it’s something that we’ve removed, and I think that will make a lot of people happy. I know that’s something that always gets brought up as a questionable thing that always comes back to aim-assist.
But yeah, there’s things we try throughout the whole development, and it really comes down to iterating and playtesting, and just getting feedback and keep going with that. So there’s always a question about things.
It depends on what people consider quickscoping. Is black scoping gone or is the ADS completely ruined again like in BO? I understand that they are at the beta stage but I don't think the game will change much from Gamescom to release in terms of quickscoping. At Gamescom at least it looked harder than the past IW games, but at least feasible compared to BO, which was a disaster for the sniper class.
i just hope they dont make it like BO1 with the random bullet bulls.h.i.t. even though i still quickscoped in that game too once i adapted. if it turns out like BO2 with aim assist turned off then ill be happy. i snipe in BO2 with AIm Assist turned off anyways. i find it has more negative effects with my quickscoping. on the other hand not using aimassist on AR/SMG with 14 sensitivity is just crazy talk.
