Mortal Kombat X cancelled on last-gen over quality concerns

Warner Bros. has advised that Mortal Kombat X won’t be released on last-gen.

The publisher said the cancellation was made over quality concerns.

“Please know our teams worked diligently to meet the quality standards set by the current-gen versions of the game,” Warner Bros. said.

“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.”

The last-gen ports of the game were in production by High Voltage Software.
