Sony Disables Until Dawn Twitch Archiving When Using PS4 Share (Update)
In a new FAQ published by Supermassive Games, they explain that the Twitch issues are in the process of being resolved:
We are currently working on a fix that will enable archiving of Until Dawn Twitch streams, as this feature was unintentionally disabled.
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.
Possibly in an attempt to keep spoilers to a minimum, Sony has decided to disable Until Dawn Twitch stream archiving when using your PlayStation 4:
Using PS4 Share to broadcast “Until Dawn”? The publisher has disabled archiving for this game. We’re reaching out to hopefully enable. ^JM

Sony has yet to explain why they disabled archiving, and Twitch hasn’t offered an update on whether they’ll be able to enable it again.
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:
All of you asking if you can stream #UntilDawn – Go for it. We made it for you to enjoy and share…
