Any hopes that fans had that Batman: Arkham Origins would make it over to next-gen consoles have been dashed, as senior producer Ben Mattes has made it clear that it is not going to happen.

Via his Twitter account, Mattes said: "I can 100% confirm that Arkham Origins will only ship on the announced platforms. It is not coming to PS4 or Xbox One."

The reason behind the decision to stick to the current console generation has yet to be revealed, but could a next-gen Batman game already be in the works over at Rocksteady?

In other Batman related news, a big announcement is being teased for this week on the Arkham Origins Twitter feed. When they reveal which additional character is set to appear in the game, we'll let you know.

The latest game in the series is set to for release on October 25, and will be available on PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U. We got hands-on with Arkham Origins' recently announced multiplayer, and you can read our early impressions of it here.
