Batman: Arkham Origins will not release on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, Warner Bros. Montreal has confirmed.

Senior producer Ben Mattes ruled out the potential for a next-gen port on Twitter earlier today, saying: "I can 100 per cent confirm that Arkham Origins will only ship on the announced platforms. It is not coming to PS4 or Xbox One."

The game is due to release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U on October 25, just days before next-gen consoles are expected to ship.

It isn't yet clear why Warner Bros. has chosen to skip a release on next-gen systems, particularly given how good the game looks on current-gen. Could Rocksteady be preparing a true next-gen Batman title for the future...?

More on Arkham Origins is expected to be revealed during Gamescom next week.

I forgot to add, part of that agreement was for warner/ montreal to not take arkham origins to next gen consoles cited as a conflict of interest

Its because rocksteady is releasing a new batman for next gen, rocksteady wanted to move forward with batman for next gen, warner brothers wanted to strike while the iron was hot anf get another arkham game out before next gen consoles are released, rocksteady and warner didnt see eye to eye so they came to an agreement for both companies to be happy, warner bros montreal could use rocksteady's engine and warner bros. Would allow rocksteady to move forward for next gen console batman, obviously if rocksteady released a next gen console batman game before warner/montreal released ps3 xbox 360 game, warner/montreal would be outdone by rocksteady. It was just an agreement by warner and rocksteady that worked for both companies, its just about money, next generation batman by rocksteady will be released late 2014
