Any and all bugs that don’t hinder progression in Warner Bros. Montreal’s Batman: Arkham Origins are likely to go unpatched. The reasoning? Too much focus on creating new DLC.
Fans dubbed the needed patch as “patch 1.06,” but the idea was shot down by a representative on the game’s official forum.
“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.”
Anything that is detrimental to the experience might see a patch in the future, but the reported minor glitches and bugs don’t rank too high on Warner Bros. Montreal’s priority list.
“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.”
Needless to say, the news was not greeted with open arms by the online community. They bought a broken game, and instead of seeing it fixed, its studio is looking to make a quick buck and move on to something else. It does sound a lot more like a publisher decision though than a developer decision.
The news follows another minor controversy in which Warner Bros. Montreal pulled the Wii U DLC out of development, forcing Nintendo to send refunds to those who purchased the season pass.
Oh, Rocksteady. Where are you in these cold times?
