inFAMOUS: Second Son Livestreams Officially “Under Embargo” until March 21st on Twitch

on March 18, 2014 7:30 PM

The number of copies of inFAMOUS: Second Son out in the wild is steadily increasing, and with them the number of broadcast leaking gameplay footage before release. That pushed Twitch to make an official policy statement on Twitter today.

UPDATE: inFAMOUS Second Son is under embargo until March 21. You risk a DMCA suspension if you broadcast the game before this date.

If you planned to boast about that new copy of the game you just brought home in video, you may want to think again, because it can cost you your account.

I’m sure I’m not the only one finding the use of the word “embargo” slightly awkward, considering that it’s normally applied to press that actually signs a non disclosure agreement and not to customers that legally purchased their copy of a game.

That said, no livestreams until the 21st. You’ve been warned.
