PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC gamers have been enjoying Mortal Kombat X for months, but the last gen version of the game wasn’t planned to launch until later this year. Unfortunately, that bad news just got worse, as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has just announced that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game have been cancelled.
Developer High Voltage Software was working to create a last gen port of the game, but they were unable to succeed in their goal of keeping the game’s quality in line with the current gen versions, so Warner Bros. opted to cancel the last gen version rather than release a sub-par product. Here’s the statement from the Community Admin of the game’s official forums:
“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.
“If you pre-ordered Mortal Kombat X for PS3 or Xbox 360, please go to the retail location where you pre-ordered the game and you will receive a full refund.”
