Warner has told fans not to expect any further patches for Batman: Arkham Origins.
Instead, Warner Bros Montreal is focusing its development resources on 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,” a community mod said on the game’s forums.
“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.”
The statement unsurprisingly engendered a fairly hostile reaction on the forums, particularly owing to the fact the Arkham Origins has been heavily criticized for the number of bugs present in the shipped product.
“So it is like ‘We are currently working on something else for this bug-ridden game to drain you dumb lot of even more money instead of working on fixing the **bleep** thing as per the proper QA would require’,” the first replay read.
“Then here's a little piece of advice for all of us who bought this bug-fest. ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY DO NOT PURCHASE ANY CURRENT OR FUTURE DLC FOR THIS GAME UNTIL IT IS PROPERLY FIXED. No fix? No more purchases.”
