Warner cancels Batman: Arkham Origins DLC on Wii U

There will no longer be any DLC released for the Wii U version of Batman: Arkham Origins.

A Warner Bros spokesperson told VG247 that: “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.”

This very much suggests that sales of the game on Nintendo’s struggling system have fallen short of Warner’s estimates.

Customers in the US who have paid for a Season Pass for the game have been told that the eShop account will be credited.

“Thanks so much for your support of Batman: Arkham Origins on Wii U,” an email sent to customers by Nintendo posted by GoNintendo reads. “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.”
