If you were eagerly waiting for the PS3 or Xbox 360 versions of Mortal Kombat X, you may want to either make that jump to the next generation, or seek a different mean to beat virtual characters to a pulp, because they aren’t coming anymore, as announced today on the official forums.
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.
While this is regrettable, I can’t really say we didn’t see this coming.
