Mortal Kombat X Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions Canceled

Mortal Kombat X

After over four months of delays, WB gives up the fight for old consoles.

WB Games has cancelled the release of Mortal Kombat X for last gen consoles. In a brief statement on the game’s official forums, WB Games community admin Yorick cited quality as the motivating factor behind the decision, saying that the publisher was, “not able to get the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions to the quality expected of a Mortal Kombat game,” and apologizing to fans of the series.

Originally planned to release in April alongside PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC releases, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Mortal Kombat X were delayed about a month prior to launch. A second delay pushing the game to a Fall release on the older consoles was confirmed in May.

The ports were in development by High Voltage Software, also responsible for the PC release which experienced a troubled launch.

Customers who pre-ordered the game on Xbox 360 or PS3 are being encouraged to request a refund from the retailer where they made their purchase.
