Warner Bros. scrap plans for future Batman: Arkham Origins DLC on Wii U


Nintendo of America have begun notifying those who purchased the accompanying Season Pass for Batman: Arkham Origins that they will shortly be refunded the cost to their Nintendo eShop account.

The message, shared by All Games Beta, explains that publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment reasoned that there wasn’t enough demand for the “upcoming new story campaign” on Wii U. They previously shared that such content would “focus on one of the most key relationships in Batman canon,” which Nintendo fans will now miss out on.

“Thanks so much for your support of Batman: Arkham Origins on Wii U,” Nintendo of America’s message 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.”
