Warner Bros. has officially cancelled Mortal Kombat X for the Xbox 360 and PS3, definite bad news for Mortal Kombat fans who only own a last-gen console.
In a press release
, the publisher said it came to the “regrettable conclusion that we cannot release Mortal Kombat X
for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360” because the team working on the game tried its best but couldn’t meet the quality standards of the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC versions.
Hardly anyone expected the exact same quality as the current-gen versions, but even the less loft quality standards couldn’t be met.
The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Mortal Kombat X
were slated to release in April 2015, around the same time as the Xbox One and PS4 version. However, it got delayed to summer before getting cancelled.
Warner Bros. is already on edge after the backlash their botched PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight received, so the company was in no position to take another public beating from gamers and critics.
Frankly, I don’t think it’s a big deal that a downgraded Mortal Kombat X
isn’t coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360. What do you think?
