Posted on November 1, 2013, Devin Connors Warner Bros. Apologizes for Buggy Arkham Origins Release
Batman: Arkham Origins? Pretty good, if scoundrel Mitchell Saltzman is to be believed. But the game’s launch has been a bit bumpy, to say the least — so much so that Warner Bros. addressed bug issues in a forum post yesterday.
We’d like to sincerely thank everyone who has joined us since the launch of the game. We appreciate the fan support and also want to thank all the people in the field who have sent us their saved games as they have been invaluable in helping us identify the problems.
It has come to our attention that there are issues that are negatively impacting the experience for some players. The team has been working around the clock to review, validate and pinpoint the problems that have been reported and we have identified three main issues which we are tackling first, and are listed below. For these issues, we expect the software update to be available within the next week. Rest assured, we are continuing to monitor all channels for other issues that players are experiencing and will release additional updates as they become available.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you all for your patience as we work to resolve the issues.
I haven’t played Origins on any platform yet, but issues including crashing and corrupted saves on the 360 and falling through the world on any platform have been widepsread enough for WB Games to specifically call them out. Fixes are on the way, as “addressing the issues…have become a top priority to the teams.”
Have you taken up as The Dark Knight in this latest Arkham chapter? If so, how’s the experience been so far? If you’ve been on the losing end of crashing and the like, let us know in the comments.
