Mortal Kombat X Delayed on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
Warner Bros. has confirmed that the last-gen versions of Mortal Kombat X have been delayed and will now arrive in summer.
“Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today confirmed that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Mortal Kombat X being developed by High Voltage Software will release this summer,” revealed the publisher to VideoGamer.com. “The Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC versions will be available April 14.”
No reason was cited for this delay. Look back though, High Voltage Software’s last year’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor was also pushed back on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, releasing almost two months after the game debuted on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Rumors of the delay started floating earlier today when Amazon updated the game’s listing to include a new June 30 release date, seven weeks after its release on the next-gen platforms. Additionally, logos for the two platforms were also missing for a trailer released earlier this week.
The next-gen versions are being handled by NetherRealm Studios.
In other news, Jason Voorhees was confirmed today as a guest character for the game. The fallen Elder God Shinnok was already revealed to be returning to Mortal Kombat X, but a new trailer this week also confirmed the return of Kenshi as well.
You can pre-order Mortal Kombat X now to gain access to Goro as a playable character on day-one.
