After reports that the new Share Play feature would work with all PS4 games, Sony has clarified that game developers can restrict the feature, as Activision has done in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
"Share Play is a system level feature enabled by System Software Update 2.00, making it available for all PS4 titles," a Sony representative said in a statement provided to Ars. "However the option is available to developers to disable the feature according to what they feel will best benefit the consumer experience."
The new statement contradicts an FAQ published by Gamespot last week, which cited a Sony representative as saying that Share Play would work across all PS4 games, with no option for publishers or developers to block support. However, Sony has always maintained that developers would be able to censor certain "spoiler" scenes during Share Play. It appears that Activision has used this bit of wiggle room to block every single scene in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare from being shared.
