Treyarch teaming up with YouTube to offer live streaming in Black Ops II

Here’s some interesting and encouraging news for Call of Duty fans;  Black Ops II will allow gamers to stream their matches live on YouTube – a feature never seen before in a console game. This innovative feature should excite those active in the Call of Duty community by giving them more flexibility in the way they share content with others.

“From the beginning of development with Call of Duty: Black Ops II, the team has been pushing boundaries on every front to offer Call of Duty fans things that they haven’t been able to do before,” explained Mark Lamia, studio head of Treyarch.

Those who view live streams on YouTube will reportedly have the ability to view the streaming players game card so they can check out the stats of the player they are watching. Very cool.

“With our competitive play and eSports initiatives, we wanted to deliver live streaming capabilities built right into Call of Duty: Black Ops II, because Call of Duty is not only fun and exciting to play, but we believe it will be just as exciting to watch. By making the capability of live streaming as accessible as possible to our fans, straight from a player’s console without the need for any additional hardware or sophisticated setups, we are empowering our fans to share their multiplayer experiences,” said Lamia.

Keep in mind, you will need a Call of Duty Elite login to view Streams, as well as a YouTube account to stream content. Call of Duty: Black Ops II releases worldwide on November 13, 2012 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
