What continuity errors are you referring to?
Not errors in the sense that it doesn't fit continuity with the other games, but I feel like it was a mistake that they introduced characters like Man-bat late in Batman's career and thus effectively dead-ended any further potential (within the Arkhamverse) for those characters. Heck, even Firefly- Didn't the dialogue indicate that Origins was the last time Firefly had been seen? The "timestamps" they put on the characters in the side-missions just sort of ruined any further development of those characters within the Arkhamverse continuity.
I agree. For me, that was the biggest and absolutely unforgivable mistake that Rocksteady had made. What they did with Firefly, Deathstroke, Man-Bat, Hush, Anarky and Dr. Phosphorus already robbed every future Arkham game set before AK of a lot of potential.
The timeline was always a bit wonky in the arkham series, that is why i really hope that if WBM does a origins sequel...it gets overall good reviews, has big sales numbers etc.
That way WBM could gain enough traction to start a new universe that gives them fresh, new timeline.
