A streamer’s live broadcast was shut down by Twitch after he was streaming gameplay of the upcoming Fallout 76 game.
Streamer ‘Time2Purge’ was stress testing the newest title in the popular Fallout series when his Twitch channel was struck down due to infringing upon the game’s content embargo.
Although Fallout 76 is due to release on November 14, a pre-order beta offers players to get early access to a preliminary version of the game and try it out.
However, according to the FAQ page for the beta, players can share game-related content starting from the day the beta releases, which is October 23 on Xbox One and October 30 on Playstation 4 and PC.
According to Time2Purge, the stream was shut down because one of the viewers had reported him and his channel to Twitch.
“Due to powers beyond my command, and some dickwad reporting me, I’ve just been told I’m being shut down,” the streamer said. “Thanks for watching everyone! And to that dickwad: go suck a dick! You just ruined it for everyone.”
Interestingly enough, it seems as though the stream would not have been shut down if it wasn’t for one of the viewers reporting it to Twitch.
Prior to that, the broadcast had been live for nearly 40 minutes, during which a variety of gameplay and in-game content was shown.
For the time being, the entirety of the rebroadcast is still available on Twitch, and can be viewed below:
