Batman: Arkham Origins unlikely to be patched, dev busy with DLC

Sunday, 9th February 2014 22:12 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Batman: Arkham Origins bugs that don’t actively hinder story progression will remain unresolved, a community representative for developer Warner Bros. Montreal has said, with some doubt cast on the chances of a patch for quite major issues.


Responding to complaints about bugs on the game’s forum, community manager Mercury said Warner Bros. Montreal isn’t working on an update which fans dubbed “patch 1.06″.

“The team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans for releasing another patch to address the issues that have been reported on the forums,” the representative said.

Mercury went on to acknowledge quite important issues remaining in the current build of the game, while not promising that they will be addressed.

“If we do move forward with creating a new patch, it will try to address the progression blocking bugs for players, not the minor glitches that do not prevent one from continuing to play,” they said.

“The issues that are not progression blockers will unfortunately no longer be addressed. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused for some of you, and want to thank you for having been patient.”

Batman: Arkham Origins released on PC, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360 in October last year. Although DLC support continues, Warner Bros. recently cancelled Wii U release plans for additional content.

The Arkham series has been popular enough that an animated movie is on the way. Origjnal developer Rocksteady seems to be working on a new project – maybe a next-gen Batman game?

Thanks, Joystiq.

    This kind of shit right here destroys my faith in that developer and the publisher. They should be boycotted for shameful shit like this.

    So that’s it? Just a “Hey sorry but as long as you can play the campaign without bricking your console fuck the rest”?

    Just because glitches aren’t preventing people from completing the campaign doesn’t mean there aren’t still game breaking bugs.

    I guess once they get their cut of the $60 you drop at the game shop the customer service ends there.

    That is an absolutely shitty thing to say. I know most publishers are enforcing this as a rule (Unless their games are as broken as Battlefield 4) but saying it out load is like saying “Yeah, we know part of our game are broken but instead of fixing them, we’re gonna find more ways to charge you”.

    Rocksteady did the same fucking thing and nobody gave a shit. They only released 2 patches or so and the second one took about 6 months and didn’t fix jackshit.
