Mortal Kombat X PC support looks to be at an end.
The unhappy saga of Mortal Kombat X on PC continues today with a second batch of bad news.
Earlier today Warner Bros. announced a re-release of the NetherRealm fighter bundled with all DLC – for PS4 and Xbox One.
PC fans grumbled a bit but Game of the Year style re-releases make more sense on consoles, where digital content sales still aren’t as prevalent as on the Steam-dominated PC front. But now it turns out that the next DLC pack, Kombat Pack 2, isn’t coming to PC either.
That’s right: you can’t buy in to the new content. It just won’t be made available.
The news comes direct from Mortal Kombat community manager Tyler Lansdown, writing on the Test Your Might forums, and didn’t include any explanation of the decision – but as commenters in the thread pointed out, the PC user base is quite small.
The PC port has quite a troubled history so it’s not terribly surprising that the audience isn’t huge. It’s a shame Warner Bros. hasn’t seen fit to try and serve the PC crowd by making good with a polished-up re-release – but maybe it was too far gone to resurrect.
The good news is that after the whole Batman: Arkham Knight disaster, which came pretty hot on the heels of Mortal Kombat X’s PC port troubles, Warner Bros. said it would be reviewing its internal processes to try and prevent similar incidents in the future.
