Call of Duty: Ghosts won’t feature the in-game live streaming feature like how Call of Duty: Black Ops II did. And in the same interview Daniel Suarez, vice president of production at Activision, confirmed that Theater mode is not returning either.
“We’re continuing the work that [Treyarch] did, eSports is a big initiative for us,” Daniel told me at the Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer reveal. He added that they’re going to continue supporting the community as much as they can with these features. That said, there is one big feature that won’t be included in Ghosts.
“So not all the feature sets that we had in Black Ops II will transfer over. So for example the streaming from the game feature we won’t actually be doing this year. The way that it worked inBlack Ops II is you had a certain resolution that you could output out. We didn’t really see the community adopting that so we’ve taken that feature out in Ghosts.” To that end, Theater Mode will also not be returning for Ghosts.
However, if you play on PS4 or Xbox One you will be able to live stream directly from the console – as the next-gen console has those features built in. And, they next gen consoles will also have the ability to record and share gameplay’s.
Ok, So Livestreaming I could care less about, plus it is built into the Next Gens for those who care.
Theater Mode... mixed feelings. It is a cool feature, but I rarely used it other than reporting cheaters or glitches I came across. I feel like it created a lot of lag in the game by recording the matches, and if it helps improve connectivity, I am fine with it going. Thoughts?
I always hate to see a feature removed from a game. This however was one I rarely used....I would sometimes use it to "scout" a player I thought played really well. Having said that it did seem MW3 performed noticeably better for me when it was turned off.
I don't see myself missing it, not sure when on jump on the new console train but, nice to know the feature will be built into the console.
I guess it's all for the better. The next gen consoles have the built-in ability to record gameplays and to live stream the games. The only downside is that we can no longer see the game through the eyes of others.
only reason they won't have this is because everyone uploads all the bullshit in the game, i mean just check youtube out foe like a hour and you can find bullets killing people that don't hit them knifes killing people when they are in a different room, makes the game look bad, but they would rather hide it than fix it
I'm dissapointed I loved the theater modes. The biggest reason for me is because you could make cool cinematic scenes (for montages) by looking at your player or others from above.
Does anyone know any other alternative to that? I'll probably buy a capture device, but I don't know how I'd be able to record the players or action itself (in other words, video other than First-person view)
