The last gen versions were delayed from their April release dates, whereas the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions released as intended. It was then said that the last gen versions would arrive later in the year, but that has since changed.
In the statement on the WB Games website, the confirmation of the cancellation came. “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.”
For those of you still gaming primarily on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that were holding out for this game, maybe it’s a sign that an upgrade is due. It’s not the first game that has failed to make it to the older systems, and being into the second year of the console cycle, it seems like this will only become more frequent in the future.
