Warner Bros. prioritizes Batman: Arkham Origins story DLC over patches

New, 39 comments

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment currently has no plans to release a Batman: Arkham Origins patch to address ongoing issues players have been encountering in the game, according to a post on the game's forums, focussing instead on the upcoming story DLC.

"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," reads the statement .

According to the post, developer WB Games Montreal will address progression blocking bugs experienced by players if it decides to proceed with a new patch. "Minor glitches" or issues that don't hinder a player's progression in the game "will unfortunately no longer be addressed.

WB Games Montreal stated in November that it was well aware of the issues experienced by players. It rolled out a patch across all platforms that prioritized three issues with the game, including an infinite free-fall; the disappearance of the option to continue the story from the main menu; and the FreeFlow Focus mode not unlocking when it's supposed to. The PC version also received a fix for a progression blocker that hindered players from accessing a vent in the Burnley Tower.

Warner Bros. teased the new story DLC last month by posting images illustrating an award statue encased in ice and another stating "You are cordially invited to the Humanitarian of the Year Awards at the Wayne Manor on New Year's Eve."

We have reached out to Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment about patch releases and will update accordingly.
