Batman: Arkham Origins Not Releasing On Next Gen Consoles
by Smoky Grey
A few days ago a tweet from Batman: Arkham Origins Senior Producer confirmed that the upcoming game will not be developed for the next gen consoles, so the Playstation 4 and Xbox One are out of luck. Despite the fact that this game will not see play in next gen consoles, this sequel is awaited by many fans and I don't think they will be too disappointed to hold on to their current gen consoles in order to play it.
The Batman series has been a hit since the release of Batman: Arkham Asylum. It was a fresh take on what a Batman game should be. Batman: Arkham City kept the legacy going by taking what Arkham Asylum did a step further. Now Batman: Arkham Origins promises to keep the momentum, being the first of the series to feature a multiplayer mode.
@plusch24 I can 100% confirm that Arkham Origins will only ship on the announced platforms. It is not coming to PS4 or Xbox One.

Though it will not be coming to the next gen consoles Batman: Arkham Origins will be released for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii U, and the PC on October 25th. There is also a spin-off game titled Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate which is set to release the same time as the main game for the Nintendo 3DS and the Playstation Vita.
