I mean, he quit in Knightfall... which was very obviously a heavy influence on this film. So the fact that people keep on just pushing the possibility of him quitting in TDKR aside and saying "ALFRED WOULD NEVER QUIT!" is ridiculous. It's like all the people that are saying "BRUCE WOULD NEVER RETIRE FROM BEING BATMAN!"... HELLO! he retired in TDKReturns, which was also very obviously a huge influence on this film.
Alfred walks away from Bruce in Batman Venom as well, when it becomes apparent Bruce has lost himself to drug addiction and won't listen.
