Warner Bros. Cancel Wii U Arkham Origins DLC

by on January 31, 2014

Another week, another developer cancels content for the poor Wii U. This time around, Warner Bros. Interactive have decided to cancel all future DLC for the Wii U edition of Arkham Origins.

AllGamesBeta received the following message from Nintendo of America’s Customer Suppoer Team:


Thanks so much for your support of Batman: Arkham Origins on Wii U.

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.

Nintendo of America Inc.

Kudos to Nintendo for taking the initiative in refunding those who purchased the Season Pass for the game, but it shouldn’t have to be this way. There would be more demand for DLC if developers actually bothered to release content worth demanding. It’s another worrying sign for the console’s dwindling third-party support.
