Report: Mortal Kombat X Delayed Again For Last-Gen Systems?

by Matthew Kato on May 27, 2015 at 05:13 AM

The last-gen versions of Mortal Kombat X for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 were delayed this spring, pushing their release into this summer. Now, there is some evidence that the game may be delayed once again.

Kotaku heard from GameStop employees last week that the title would be delayed [Full Disclosure: Game Informer is owned by GameStop], and this was seemingly confirmed on the retailer's online website, which now lists a December 31, 2015 release date for the fighter (click here for the PS3 entry).

High Voltage Software is porting the title for the last-gen systems.

We've contacted Warner Bros. Interactive to get some more info, and will update this story if we hear back.

All shots are from the current-gen version.

Our Take
The December 31 date appears to be placeholder, but either way, I imagine the end of 2015 would be the latest you could release this game given the state of last-gen gaming and the distance from the current-gen releases.
