Warner Bros Has No Plans To Fix The Numerous Bugs Plaguing ‘Arkham Origins’

ArkhamOrigins

Yikes. If a progression blocking bug has kept you from dusting off your copy of Batman: Arkham Origins, I have some bad news for you. In an effort to shovel out the DLC that was promised to season pass holders as quickly as possible, Warner Bros is ignoring the many game-breaking bugs that still plague the game. “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,” wrote Arkham’s community manager.

Choosing not to fix a game that’s still broken for many so you can make money off DLC is a supremely shitty thing to do.

“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,” they continued.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused for some of you, and want to thank you for having been patient.”

This is disappointing, and it shows a total lack of respect for the fans who spent $60 on a game that was very obviously rushed out. If you’re planning on giving this a rental — I wouldn’t suggest buying it unless they tackle the remaining critical bugs — I’d suggest taking a look at our review first.

    I pre-ordered the game, we didn’t have many problems until I went to go beat it in I am the Knight mode, we went to go beat deathstroke and it just totally froze, I freaked out thinking my xbox broke. I’m pissed that they won’t fix the bugs that stopped me from finishing the mode. complete disrespect to the fans.

      Oh but remember! To WB this isn’t a progression issue! This is a minor issue!

      Right? O_o

      • Nurse Derpusheen

        exactly, that’s what kinda pissed me off. They made it seem like such a big thing, then to find out it wasn’t counted as one, it was confusing and ridiculous.

        • Giomanach

          I had the same fucking issue with Deathstroke! Honestly with you girl, I am glad I wasn’t the only one with this issue. I agree with ya complete and utter disrespect to the fans.

          • Nurse Derpusheen

            yeah, I was worried something was wrong with my xbox until I read that deathstroke had a lot of complaints. Im glad we’re not the only ones.

        • Giomanach

          yea, I thought similar to that. I did get pissed off to the extent I through my controller up in the air (glad it didn’t break). Gave a middle finger to the tv and said loudly, “Fuck you!” I was trying to get it working for months and checking to see if my game was scratched or something when I chilled out.

            a month*

            threw* fuck I’m tired

    I’m a big fan of the series and really want to play it but I am a thrift monger. I have been waiting till the GOTY or whatever bundle it will be called with all the DLC.

    I say supremely lame that they are not fixing game breaking bugs. Really strange because arkham asylum prompted a red ring on my 360. I typically just buy these games PC now and plug in my ps3 controller. For the most part I am done with consoles for that reason.

    When you treat paying customers like this, you have no right to complain when they download your next game off the Pirate Bay.

    • Nurse Derpusheen

      True that.

  • spaulding187

    Only froze once when retrying on deathstroke… Other then that finished the game with no problems.

  • Evil_Flip

    lol, I actually had a glitch that helped my progression. Bane had broken my spine and yet for some reason the story continued anyway xD

    • Nurse Derpusheen

      that’s sweet.
