Nothing like a good scandal to start Monday off and this week’s comes courtesy of Warner Brothers, specifically the Arkham Community Manager on the official WB Games forums.
A number of players asked if game breaking bugs were to be fixed in the near future and this was the response:
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.
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.
So just to be clear, Warner Bros are saying thatthe “progression blocking bugs” that stop you from playing the game may not be fixed until after the next batch of paid-for DLC, and any other glitches will not be patched at all.
It makes a nice change for a developer to be honest and upfront but this probably was not the news purchasers of Batman: Arkham Origins were hoping for.
