When it comes to video games on consoles, most developers tend to release on the PlayStation and Xbox platforms, with Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U platform acting as an afterthought. For fans of Batman, you might have heard the good news in which Warner Bros confirmed that Batman: Arkham Origins will be released on all platforms – the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, the PC, and the Wii U. The bad news is that unfortunately the multiplayer mode for the game will not be released for the Wii U, instead multiplayer mode will be available only on the PS3, Xbox 360, and the PC.
According to a statement released by Warner Bros, “The team is focusing development efforts on platforms with the largest MP audience,” which while blunt is pretty accurate. The Wii U console is unfortunately not doing so hot right now and we’re sure excluding features from games will not be helping the console get back on its feet. Interestingly though Wii U gamers could end up paying the same amount for the game despite it lacking a pretty major feature, a move that we’re sure many gamers will not be too pleased about.
