    Activision is so *pissed off* that they blocked PS4′s Share Play for COD:AW. Why?, because they won’t include something that they don’t *fully tested* and so on.
    They blamed 2.00 update for PS4 among several not so gullible excuses. Maybe they can allow PS4 share play later, but..who knows?.

    To quote:

    Since it was discovered that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare blocked Share Play on PS4, publisher Activision has received a ton of flack. Things got even worse when Sony confirmed that Share Play is a feature available to all games, but ultimately enabled or disabled by the developer or publisher as they see fit.

    Before we crucify Activision for not letting us play Advanced Warfare with a buddy through Share Play, it’s only fair we give them a chance to respond. Turns out, there’s a reason for why Share Play is blocked.

    “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,” Activision told us.

    “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.”

    So while Activision chose not to allow Share Play at launch, it sounds as though they are still open to the idea of it in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. I don’t know about you, but I’d certainly prefer they’d take the time to test out the new feature — especially given the problems with PS4 firmware update 2.00.

      The irony when u can share play ghost but not cod AW.

      This is just bull**** whatever they are saying. Share play is OS functionality, this has nothing to do with the game.
      The only thing they can do is block some spoilers and they used this to block the whole game
      and what about dedicated servers, they will still say the "not enough time" thingy.
      After they released ghosts i stopped eating fish,i just hate fish so much now, i just now eat chicken.
      You have to believe that Activision are greedy developers. if they could charge money for share play they will make the game compatible with it in a second.
      and this just will not end here. The DLC is coming. we have to face that too. they will never say "Not enough time" thingy for this.
