Batman: Arkham Origins developer Warner Bros. Games Montreal has indicated that it is too busy working on the game’s upcoming DLC to fix ‘game breaking’ bugs reported by the community.
In an update on the game’s official forums, community manager Mercury explained that the “the team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans for releasing another patch to address the issues that have been reported on the forums.
“If we do move forward with creating a new patch, it will try to address the progression blocking bugs for players, not the minor glitches that do not prevent one from continuing to play. The issues that are not progression blockers will unfortunately no longer be addressed.”

Understandably the decision was met with criticism from fans, with one, Soulverlord, calling the developer “the biggest scum sucking bunch of monkey amateurs”.
“You basically ripped us all off with a broken product, and lied to the community about a patch you had no intention of releasing, and have the audacity to release more dlc,” they said. “Huge slap in the face to the whole community.”
Warner Montreal claims that “since the last patch, many of the major progression blockers in the game have been fixed,” but acknowledged that “in rare cases, players are still experiencing some bugs and glitches in the game.”
Amongst other glitches, the Xbox 360 version of Arkham Origins is still thought to suffer from a bug causing corrupt save files.
Warner Montreal added that it “apologizes for any inconvenience this has caused for some of you, and want to thank you for having been patient”.
