Batman: Arkham Origins patch coming next week to address major bugs, WB apologizes

Apparently, many players have been experiencing serious bugs in Batman: Arkham Origins. Crucially, one bug affects the ability to actually play the game at all, with "Continue" no longer showing up in the game's main menu. Another bug has the Batman falling out of the world in an endless loop, making it impossible to complete certain missions and progress through the campaign.
"We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you all for your patience as we work to resolve the issues," the company said in a statement. And of course, a patch is in the works.
A patch will fix many--but not all--of the major bugs WB has identified. The title update will be available on platforms next week.
With regards to the infinite loop, the patch should push players back to their previous save, so they will no longer be stuck. Gamers that can't see the "Continue" option will see it restored. The "Shadow Vigilante" rank 3 bonus will properly unlock.
However, there are still issues that WB has identified but will need to "continue to investigate." Xbox 360 players are experiencing corrupted saves. "We believe we know what is causing this and need a few more days to validate before pushing a patch through," a rep said on the community forums (via Eurogamer).
In addition, the Xbox 360 version of the game has "recurring crashing and freezing." Once again, WB seems to know what is causing the issues, but will "need a few more days to validate before pushing this patch through." A quick fix is to avoid having your Xbox 360 connected to the internet in order to keep on playing.
It appears there's quite a lot to fix. And given your feedback on our review, it appears many of you have been affected by some of these bugs.
