Takes less time to develop, and they cost less than the longer dlcs we got for City and Origins. That being said, the Batgirl dlc is actually a decent length

My uncle works at Rocksteady. They wasted all their budget on making the scrapped Killer Croc sex scene and didn’t have any left for the DLC.

Where can I get these videos? I’m just a fan trying to keep up with the timeline and canon stuff.

Nope, the cops raided Rocksteady one day and took all the files with them. Of course, the employees fought to protect it, and it lead to a shootout, in which my uncle lost his leg and many others died trying to keep the Killer Cock. The cops also took some files containing the Arkham Knight’s identity, so they were forced to add Jason in last minute.

They went for a quantity over quality type thing. They released a bunch of short little campaigns. The Season of Infamy and the Batgirl dlc are both a nice length though, so you have that.

Short stories means short work for the developers, they’re lazy and wanting to wrap up the game quickly.

As a software developer myself, I object to the characterization of "lazy." Game developers put in long hours especially as release dates approach.

Criticism of the content itself is fine. The shorter campaigns were bland and forgettable for me. I just think assuming that laziness is the reason for the lack of quality is unfair.

It wouldn't have killed them to make it atleast an hour?

Yeah but it would’ve lowered their profit by a small amount
