Warner Bros. Montreal, developer of Batman: Arkham Origins, has announced that they will not be utilizing the controversial service, Games for Windows Live for their game’s PC counter-part when it launches in late October.

Both of Arkham Origins‘ predecessors, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City utilized GFWL for tracking achievements. The integration of the service led to widespread installation and game-save issues. WB Montreal has opted to instead utilize Valve’s Steamworks service for multi-player matchmaking and other components that require it.

Batman: Arkham Origins is being developed by Warner Bros. Montreal and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on October 25th, 2013. A Vita/3DS version of the game, Batman: Arkham Origins – Blackgate, is also in development by Armature Studio and will be released on the same day.
