Facebook Partners With Blizzard for Live Streaming

Category: Gaming
Posted: 02:57PM

Facebook and Blizzard have reached an agreement to integrate the Facebook Live API into Blizzard games, allowing for users to link their Facebook accounts to their Battle.net accounts. The simplest use case for this partnership is to allow logging in with your linked Facebook account, but long term goals include adding "even more social functionality to its games." Perhaps the most exciting possibility here is that Blizzard is working on adding a "Go Live" feature to its games which will stream your gameplay to your Facebook timeline. Blizzard executive VP of corporate operations Gio Hunt has revealed that, unsurprisingly, the company is "working closely with Facebook on this integration for Overwatch," it's most recent offering, adding that it is working on its other games as well.
