Glitches will remain unfixed on Batman: Arkham Origins, WB Games says

arkham origins2Batman: Arkham Origins released to mixed reviews last year, and many reported having various problems with game glitches that included corrupted save files on the Xbox 360. I myself encountered one glitch after completing the main storyline where the game wouldn’t allow you to interrogate suspects (this was remedied by the game’s last patch). For those still encountering distracting glitches, you’re out of luck if you’re hoping that another patch will be forthcoming. Warner Bros. Games has released a statement through a community manager on the Batman: Arkham Origins forum saying no new patches for the game will be issued.

The statement reads: “The team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans fro releasing another patch.” It was added that the possibility did exist for a future patch, but only for issues that would impede a player’s progress. “The issues that are not progression blockers will unfortunately no longer be addressed.” PC users may get relief on some issues involving Deathstroke. A statement from another forum thread reads: “The teams will be looking into addressing the issue of Deathstroke’s Quick Fire Neural Pellets and Quick Fire Proximity Bomb not working with PC mouse/keyboard.”

This doesn’t bode too well for the game, and I’d expect WB Games to get some backlash for this from fans. Those who purchased the Wii U version have already been disappointed by the fact the upcoming story DLC will not be coming to Nintendo’s console. It was probably only a small consolation that Wii U users who bought the Season Pass were given a refund. The DLC is said to center around Mr. Freeze and will be released this year for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
