After a series of delays and reports of troubled development, Warner Bros. Interactive has finally decided to pull the plug on Mortal Kombat X for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The company cites not being able to live up to the standards it hoped for as its reasoning.
After months of development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has come to the regrettable conclusion that we cannot release Mortal Kombat X for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Please know our teams worked diligently to meet the quality standards set by the current-gen versions of the game. We were not able to get the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions to the quality expected of a Mortal Kombat game and are very sorry for not being able to deliver the products as originally planned.
If you pre-ordered Mortal Kombat X for PS3 or Xbox 360, please go to the retail location where you pre-ordered the game and you will receive a full refund.
It’s a shame if you were waiting for it, but the game has already become a huge success on the current-gen consoles, being one of the best selling games of the spring. If you were waiting to play it for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, don’t worry. There will be plenty of used copies waiting for you when you finally decide to upgrade.
