COD Advanced Warfare live stream angers developer

By Alan Ng - Oct 27, 2014

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare does not launch until November 4, but as we told you earlier this week some people have once again managed to get the game one week early. As a result, COD Advanced Warfare live streams have gone live and developers Sledgehammer Games have taken to Twitter to reveal their sadness over it.

We always knew this was going to happen, as it always does each year with such a high profile release. Sledgehammer are still not happy about it though, even going as far to say that some people have ‘stolen’ copies of the game.

We know one live stream in question that was broadcasting hours ago, which has subsequently been taken down after Activision took action. That is obviously only one though, since there’s nothing stopping others from secretly recording and giving the stream an ‘undetectable’ title.


While Sledgehammer are not going into details on what they meant by ‘stolen’, we can however move onto good news about one official COD Advanced Warfare live stream that everyone will be able to watch without problem.

On Tuesday afternoon at 3pm Eastern Time, OpTic Gaming are going to be live streaming COD Advanced multiplayer with the blessing of Activision. During this stream, COD Caster Mode will be revealed and much more – you can watch the action as it happens live here.

We have a feeling that the main reason Sledgehammer is upset, is that the DNA Bomb 30-kill reward was revealed early and also the fact that some streamers were showing cut-scenes from the COD Advanced Warfare campaign – which is obviously understandable in that aspect.

Have you been tempted to watch any live streams of the game early, or are you saving yourself for the Day Zero edition next week?

    What is the official stream time on twitch? maybe you could add that to your post presuming YT will be the same mine are pre-recorded already but no idea the allowance time

  • Some advice

    Why don’t you two just shut your immature mouths.

  • Killing The Goose

    These guys sure have Sledgehammered the CoD brand with this sci-fi crud.
    I really hope that Treyarch are sticking to the formula we all love – a realistic (albeit arcadey) game set in the present or past. This series was created with past REAL wars in mind and that is when the franchise shines. Even MW1 & 2 were based in reality (you know terrorism etc). This is just a cop out. Why destroy the franchise that was so valuable? If Sledgehammer wanted to have a sci-fi laser shooty, shooty, then they could have just created a new IP. I know that would not hand them a whole bunch of free sales on the back of the CoD brand, but it is decisions like this that will kill the brand. CoD is not lasers and invisibility cloaks. Carzy. Talk about killing the goose that lays the golden eggs….

  • Sharks With Frickin Lasers

    It took them three years to make this turdfest? What? How long can it take to shoehorn lasers, invisibility and double jumps into the game to completely ruin the CoD experience? All with a *massive* 5 hr campaign.
    Seriously, Activision, you need to dump Sledgehammer. I have bought every CoD since WaW, but there is no way I am buying this sad little Titanfail/Halo/Crysis rip off. I want my CoD back!!!

    • Doesn’t make any sense

      It can’t be a ripoff of those games realistically ecause the studios of those games like titanfall wouldn’t just be like “Oh hey sledgehammer i hear you are making a cod you should make some thing similar to ours that we’re making.” The studios didn’t know what each other was producing. So therefore it can’t be a ripoff.
