If you got BioShock: The Collection this week and tried to stream the game directly from your console, you might have been left scratching your head as to why the game does not allow you to do so.
Although Publisher 2K recently noted the fact that the game does not support streaming, it is yet to reveal any specific reasons for this dilemma. “Unfortunately, streaming BioShock: The Collection isn’t an option right now,” it said in a statement, adding that it would update if this situation changes.
While portions of some games are blocked from streaming, but blocking a whole game is pretty extreme. Players can find alternative methods to stream BioShock: The Collection like streaming directly off capture card software, but for the time being, it looks like using each console’s built-in streaming features is a dead end.
BioShock: The Collection, features remastered versions of Bioshock, BioShock 2, and BioShock: Infinite. It was released on September 13th for PS4 and Xbox One. The PC edition came out on September 15th.
The compilation was made by Blind Squirrel Games, who have also worked with Irrational Games in the past for Infinite.
BioShock designer Ken Levine revealed why he doesn’t want to make any more games in the series. “I think the natural expectation was that I would go and do the next bigger and better BioShock game,” he said. “And I felt, ‘I think I’ll fail if I do that. I think I’ll lose my mind, and my marriage.’ And so my solution was to quit.”
