Batman: Arkham Origins DLC will not be released on Wii U, Warner. Bros has confirmed.

“Based on demand for DLC content on the system, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has made the decision to remove its offering of the upcoming all-new story campaign for Wii U,” a PR representative for Warner. Bros told VG247.

We fired off a query after AllGamesBeta posted an email allegedly from Nintendo of America’s customer support, offering refunds on the game’s season pass.

Wii U fans have been uncertain about the prospect of the DLC’s release for some time; announcements failed to mention a Wii U release for DLC as early as June 2013.

This won’t be the first time the Wii U has gone neglected when it came to DLC; Injustice DLC was very late, and Ubisoft elected not to bring Assassin’s Creed DLC over at all.

    I got a feeling that no one is shocked.

    Nintendo this generation is in a bad place… If they drop Wii U and release a new system, they will loose consumer confidence. But Sticking with the current system is not working for them.

    Basically, the Wii U is Nintendo’s Sega Saturn.

    Nintendo is still sitting high on the Wii’s sales and shovel-ware licensing sales, I want Nintendo to drop out of hardware and become a monster software developer & publisher.

    Nintendo didn’t understood loads of non gaming people bought the Wii just because it was the newest fad.
    The best hope for a Nintendo hardware is to sell 20 millions pieces, IF they have decent 3rd party support and they don’t fuck up, which won’t ever happen.
    That’s why I was and still am so pissed about Bayonetta 2 on WiiU.

    People want Nintendo games, NOT Nintendo consoles.

    It makes sense why they’re heading towards mobile gaming.

    Nintendo has the potential to truly make the mobile ecosystem compatible with quality games at legitimate prices.

    Man, for Warner to abandon Wii U is big news, seeing as the Batman games were held up as AAA ones that were avilable on Wii U.

    When the platform’s getting denied content; when publishers are leaving inferior selections, that’s no good time for those consumers.

    First of all. I´m not much of a fan of the DLC phenomenon. It should in my opinion be included in the original game or in the next. I Have Arkhams City and Origins but havent had the time to play them through. Something I wonder is, why does the Dlc need to come out so soon after release?
    Second: Nintendo should not leave the hardware business because real fans wan´t the hardware to. Sony obviously has software and operating systems problem and Microsoft have hardware problems. Nintendo does Everything with good quality. Maybe not as good hardware specs as Sony or Microsoft but I prefer quality over specs. I have never had any problems with Wii or Wii U. But I have 2 360´s that is just scrap now because of hardware problems. Many games works better on 360 than Ps3 and those problems keep on coming on their new hardware to.
