Twitch video game broadcasting is coming to the Xbox One next month, launching alongside the hotly anticipated Titanfall for the next-gen console.

Previously Twitch said that live streaming would come to the Xbox One sometime in 2014. It's currently possible to spectate Twitch streaming and upload recorded game clips, but not live streaming via the console.

Twitch CEO Emmett Shear told the Associated Press this morning that live streaming is finally on the way, and will debut on March 11 alongside Titanfall.

"It's complete integration," Shear says. "It's exciting because we've never had the ability to broadcast from a console like this with such a deep level of integration. The concept of being able to join a broadcasters' party is really cool, and it's another step in the direction of interacting more closely with broadcasters."

Notably, Twitch live streaming has been part of the PlayStation 4 since the Sony console's launch. However, the PS4's Twitch app was created by Sony with Twitch's help, and doesn't allow users to connect to other broadcasters' parties.

Twitch will no doubt be keen to see how launching for Xbox One affects its user numbers. Last month, the company said that nearly 20 percent of all Twitch livestreams come from a PS4.
