David Vonderhaar has revealed on Jan. 30 some insight in regards to the live-streaming feature of the recently-released multiplatform title, “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.” The game director disclosed through Twitter that being able to stream video while playing game was “just shy of a technical miracle.” He also talked about needing next-generation hardware, possibly referring to the PS4 and Xbox 720, in order to support 720p or lowered the bandwidth requirement for the feature. You can check out some concept images of the two upcoming consoles and some screens from “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2” in the slideshow the top of this article and the comments from David Vonderhaar below (courtesy of DavidVonderhaar Twitter):
Using a console to encode video and stream direct to Twitch or YouTube, while you are playing the game, is just shy of a technical miracle. I'd love it if it could be 720p, or the bandwidth requirements would be lower. We are going to need next-gen hardware for that. Go forth and stream. Cheers.
Activision released “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2,” which was developed by Treyarch, for multiple systems on Nov. 13, 2012. You can purchase the game in the following link: “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2”
