One more piece of Batman: Arkham Origins DLC is still to come, a little story campaign, but it won't be coming to Wii U. Warner Bros. has confirmed that it's cancelled the Wii U release, as there's not enough interest. You know, the real Batman would stick up for the underdog.
"Based on demand for DLC content on the system, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has made the decision to remove its offering of the upcoming all-new story campaign for Wii U," a representative told Polygon today.
The confirmation comes after a report from GoNintendo that people who had bought the $20 DLC Season Pass were getting a refund. They'll get to keep the other DLC, though.
The Wii U version of Arkham Origins was always the least-loved, coming without multiplayer--though it was at least $10 cheaper. In a way it was surprising the game hit Wii U at all, given that most major cross-platform franchises are skipping Nintendo's latest console.
