Twitch game streaming on Xbox One still doesn’t have a launch date

Xbox One Twitch Streaming Delay 2014

Bad news for Xbox One owners hoping to stream their games in the near future — according to the Twitch Twitter account, the Direct Broadcasting feature still lacks a release date from Microsoft, and the Twitch team tells future streamers to “expect a few more months.” Just days before the system launch in November, Microsoft took to the Xbox Wire to announce the delay of game streaming on Xbox One, a surprising announcement considering that the PlayStation 4 Twitch integration had already rolled out without a hitch.

At the time, Microsoft stated that the streaming capabilities of the Twitch app would be delayed until “the first part of 2014,” but a few days into January, Twitch isn’t quite so optimistic. Microsoft shared the following statement with Polygon after the tweet was posted:

“We understand that the broadcasting component of Twitch is very important, and it is a major focus on our roadmap as we work to ensure it is seamlessly implemented into our Xbox One experience over the coming months.”
