DLC cancelled for WII U batman Arkham origins

Publisher Warner Bros has scrapped plans to develop downloadable content for the Wii U edition of Batman: Arkham Origins.

Platform holder Nintendo cited low demand for the downloadable content as the primary reason for calling off the content. Wii U owners who purchased a season pass for the Arkham Origins DLC will be refunded in full with eShop credit, Nintendo said.

The full message, posted below, first surfaced on the news website GoNintendo

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.
