Fans won’t let Mortal Kombat X PS3, Xbox 360 die

Despite the fact that NetherRealm Studios put out a statement recently saying that Mortal Kombat X for PS3 and Xbox 360 had been cancelled, we can still see that some fans are refusing to let the game die.

New petitions are still being set up, asking NetherRealm to reverse their decision and find a way to bring the game back to life.

NetherRealm said in their initial statement that they ‘could not’ release Mortal Kombat X for PS3 and Xbox 360 as the team couldn’t meet the ‘quality expected for a Mortal Kombat game’.


That statement was on August 28, but almost two weeks later we still see fans begging for the game to come out. Even Ed Boon felt the need to comment on the desire, replying to a fan asking for the game by saying that he ‘wishes it was that simple’.

The reality is that the decision was probably a very difficult one given the previous promises to develop and more importantly, all of the pre-orders that Warner Bros now have to honor with refunds.

There are numerous petitions still alive, although truth be told there doesn’t appear to be much movement now that the dream has been shattered for most fans.


Some still argue that they shouldn’t have to be forced to upgrade to newer hardware, but do you believe that this argument is now redundant with many developers now focusing primarily on next-gen only and off-sourcing last-gen versions to other studios?

It happened with Batman Arkham Knight on PC and now it has happened with Mortal Kombat X. Give us your thoughts on the unfortunate fate of MKX for last-gen.
