What that means for Achievements is unknown as it means no logging into Live. Updates will also be delivered via other means. Will it hybrid with Steamworks?
It's unclear what the heck Warner Bros. is up to but we do know at least that the pesky Games for Windows Live client won’t be bothering Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham City when it releases. The Microsoft system just doesn't cut it and annoys more than anything.
"We've just received notice from Warner's that Batman is Games for Windows but NOT a Games for Windows 'Live' title!" online retailer Green Man Gaming.
"It means no logging in, that's right. I'm not sure how it handles achievements, but there isnt much point of GFW, you're right!" they . Why would Warner bother sticking with Games for Windows if they're not using Live? Will they turn to Valve's Steamworks?
Batman: Arkham City releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC October 21st.
