BioShock: The Collection Preventing Built-In Streaming on PS4/Xbox One; 2K Games Looking Into a Fix

on September 15, 2016 11:54 AM

Released earlier this week, many players are getting the change to dive back into Rapture or head up into Columbia with the release of BioShock: The Collection, though recent issues with the game have shown that those looking to stream their adventures with the acclaimed series are running into problems.

An update on the official 2K Games support game has shown that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of BioShock: The Collection are blocking players from using the built-in livestreaming functionality within the consoles to stream gameplay.

The post from 2K’s support team at this time explains that “Unfortunately, streaming BioShock: The Collection isn’t an option right now,” though the support team also added that updates will be provided “should this situation change.”

Some titles on PS4 and Xbox One will prevent streaming during key cutscenes or moments within their built-in streaming software to prevent potential spoilers from being seen by viewers, though this is one of the first reported incidents of a title being completely blocked from streaming by either Sony or Microsoft’s consoles for some reason. However, third-party solutions such as capture cards can still be used in the meantime until an official fix is provided by 2K Games.

BioShock: The Collection is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
