It has been confirmed that the PS4 Share feature has been disable for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
“Delivering a great gaming experience for fans is our top priority. We’re focused on launching Advanced Warfare and ensuring that people have a great time playing it, which our fans seem to be. Share Play is a new feature that was introduced as part of the recent PS4 firmware 2.00 update. Our engineers didn’t have access to it before it launched, so we haven’t had a chance to evaluate it to see how it will impact the experience across all modes of play. Of course we wouldn’t include a feature in our game without having the chance to test it. Once we’ve fully analyzed its performance, we’ll determine how to support it going forward.”
– Activision’s statement to Gamespot
Playstation Share Play allows an owner of a game to share it with a friend who hasn’t got the game. The owner is the host and can stream gameplay footage to a guest console. The host can relinquish control of the game to the guest too, letting the user play.
Sony have confirmed that publishers can disable this for any game.
Activision’s statement has suggested it will consider supporting it for the future but we wouldn’t hold our breath on this.
