Warner Bros. Montreal have confirmed that their upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins title will not be launching on any of the two next-gen consoles. Ben Mattes, who’s the game’s senior producer revealed the news via his personal Twitter account.
He was responding to another tweet from a fan of the series wanting to know if the title would be making it’s way to the PS4 or Xbox One platforms. The tweet that he sent can be viewed below:
@plusch24 I can 100% confirm that Arkham Origins will only ship on the announced platforms. It is not coming to PS4 or Xbox One.

There’s not been any comment from Warner Bros on this revelation so far either, and it is puzzling as to why the new Batman game won’t be making it’s way to the next-generation consoles. Perhaps they’ve got a special edition lined up for the next-gen platforms in the future, we’ll keep you up to date anyhow.
More information is going to be produced at Gamescom 2013 regarding Origins, so keep your eyes peeled for that too.
Batman: Arkham Origins launches on the PlayStation 3, PC, Xbox 360 and Wii U on October 25th worldwide.
