Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will not release Batman: Arkham Origins' upcoming story campaign DLC to the Wii U "based on demand" for the DLC on the console, the company confirmed with Polygon today.
"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 Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment spokesperson told Polygon.
According to an email obtained by Go Nintendo, Wii U users who bought a DLC season pass for Batman: Arkham Origins are being refunded with a $19.99 Nintendo eShop credit. The full email follows:
Thanks so much for your support of Batman: Arkham Origins on Wii U.
We are contacting you today because you purchased the Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass for Wii U. We hope you've been enjoying the content that has been delivered thus far. Based on demand for Downloadable Content on the system, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has made the decision to remove its offering of the upcoming new story campaign for Wii U. As a result, we will be crediting the entire $19.99+tax cost of the Season Pass back to your Nintendo eShop account. You will still be able to enjoy the content already released thus far.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your support of the game.
Nintendo of America Inc.
The Arkham Origins season pass was available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Wii U. It included three skin packs, the Initiation DLC that features Bruce Wayne before he became the Dark Knight, and the new story campaign.
Following lower-than-expected holiday sales caused by missed Wii U sales targets, Iwata said Nintendo plans to double-down on the Wii U GamePad to strengthen the console's market share. It aims to do this by developing software that takes advantage of its features.
Polygon reached out to Nintendo and Warner Bros. for comment.
