In the week of terrible Nintendo news, Warner Bros. has officially announced they have cancelled the DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins on the Wii U.
According to Go Nintendo, Nintendo is emailing subscribers of the season pass for Origins an apology and a full refund. The following email is being sent to subscribers:
Thanks so much for your support of Batman: Arkham Origins on Wii U.
We are contacting you today because you purchased the Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass for Wii U. We hope you’ve been enjoying the content that has been delivered thus far. Based on demand for Downloadable Content on the system, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has made the decision to remove its offering of the upcoming new story campaign for Wii U. As a result, we will be crediting the entire $19.99+tax cost of the Season Pass back to your Nintendo eShop account. You will still be able to enjoy the content already released thus far.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your support of the game.
Nintendo of America Inc.
Generally, a cancellation of DLC would only happen if the demand was slim to none. Spending thousands of dollars for *100 people would be bad business sense. It seems Nintendo's troubles and lack of 3rd party support continue.
*Not the actual number but probably rather close
