Batman: Arkham Origins DLC Cancelled on the Wii U

on January 31, 2014 5:45 AM

The Wii U version of Batman: Arkham Origins will not be recieving story DLC, Nintendo stated today in an email to owners of the Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass.

Those who bought the Pass will find that the full amount has been refunded to their account, and so will be able to buy additional digital content if they choose.

Nintendo states that the reason for the withdrawn DLC is a lack of demand for content, perhaps alluding to the subpar sales of the game on the Wii U console.

Check out the full email below:

Hello,

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.

Sincerely,
Nintendo of America Inc.
