As the third game in the series, and the first not developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham Origins is heading to Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on 25th October. And yet again, Nintendo fans get screwed over by another third-party.
Today, it was confirmed that the upcoming action game will boast a three-vs-three online mode, which is currently in the works externally at Splash Damage. However, the Wii U version will be missing this multiplayer content as Warner Bros. “is focusing development efforts on platforms with the largest MP audience”.
Perhaps Wii U doesn’t have the most active user-base at the moment, but how can third-parties expect the platform’s online community to grow when such high-profile releases are missing their online components on that platform?
And third-parties wonder why their games don’t sell on Nintendo platforms.
