Update:

In a new FAQ published by Supermassive Games, they explain that the Twitch issues are in the process of being resolved:

We are humbled by the community reception of the game and are excited to see fans sharing experiences on Twitch and YouTube.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will provide an update as soon as the issue has been resolved.

It also appears as though the pre-order issue where people couldn’t play Until Dawn for 128 days has been fixed. “The next time affected users log in, their data will automatically refresh and they will be able to boot the game,” they said.

While archiving is disabled when using the PS4’s Twitch app, those streaming and capturing Until Dawn footage through other methods appear to be unaffected.

You shouldn’t worry about the actual Twitch streams disappearing though, as developer Supermassive Games said earlier this week:

Have you been watching Until Dawn streams?
