Mortal Kombat X won’t bypass Microsoft and Sony’s premium online play requirements.

Reports that Mortal Kombat X wouldn’t require PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold started circling earlier this week thanks to a communications error.

Answering fan questions on Twitter, producer Shaun Himmerick accidentally gave the impression that premium console subs would not be required to play the fighter online.

Turns out he just meant that there would be no console exclusive content, but made an error when replying.

Himmerick has since deleted the original, misleading tweets. Hopefully nobody got so excited about this unlikely possibility that they slapped down a pre-order they don’t want after all.

Mortal Kombat X is coming to PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in April.
