Batman: Arkham Origins wasn’t exactly warmly received when it launched last year. Sure, I may have loved the look, story and voice talent behind the game, but the sheer amount of unpolished work on the game which resulted in a ton of bugs, ruined it for me. And don’t expect those bugs to be patched anytime soon.
Over on the Arkham Origins forum, community manager Mercury explained that Warner Bros. Montreal were working more on upcoming DLC, with zero efforts being directed to a new patch.
“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,”Mercury said. That doesn’t mean that Warner Bros Montreal isn’t aware of these issues. But they aren’t exactly working on fixing them up either:
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.
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.
I reviewed the game last year on PlayStation 3, and found numerous bugs that produced everything from strange effects, extreme ragdoll physics and game-crashes when I tried to fast-travel. Original Arkham developer Rocksteady however, has hinted that they’re working on something new for new-gen consoles.
My money is on a Suicide Squad game.
