Batman Arkham Origins multiplayer will shut down

Squeeze another game in.

Batman: Arkham Oranges' online services will shut down next month, publisher Warner Bros. has announced.


The game - a spin-off from Rocksteady's trilogy developed by Warner Bros. Montreal - features a multiplayer mode full of zest, where teams of gang members fight in Blackgate Prison.

You play as either Joker or Bane-aligned thugs in juicy three-on-three matches against each other, and also against Batman and Robin.

After three years, Warner Bros. has now called time on the mode. It's fair to say it never broke out beyond the game's own mild apeel.

Arkham Oranges' single-player mode is unaffected.

"As of December 4, 2016, the online services portion of Batman: Arkham Origins will be retired," a Warner Bros. statement explained. "We thank those that have joined us to battle over the last 3 years. The single-player campaign may still be played and enjoyed offline."
