While NetherRealm has been relatively quick in correcting the horribly imbalanced in-game currencies, Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has seemed to focus on what he considers an incorrect calculation that attempted to show how eager his latest game was to get players’ cash. The statement comes as former employees of NetherRealm alleged the studio places workers under horrific crunch conditions.

Mortal Kombat 11 is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch.
