Mortal Kombat X Launch “Biggest in History”, NetherRealm Working on Issues
Series co-creator reports “literally millions of players getting online”.
NetherRealm Studios’ Mortal Kombat X is finally available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and series co-creator Ed Boon is overwhelmed by the response the game has received. On Twitter, Boon stated that MKX has had the biggest launch in the franchise’s history, though number of units sold wasn’t specified.
“Thank you everyone for making Mortal Kombat X the biggest launch in MK history. You made the game FAR exceed our wildest expectations….!!”
However, one would think that day one sales are phenomenal since, as Boon noted, “The Mobile & console games have had literally millions of players getting online in a really short period of time, hitting our servers HARD!”
While critics have appreciated the new release, issues have arisen here and there. Boon reiterated that, “We love that so many players want to play MKX and are working (like mad) on all the issues some of you are experiencing! We WILL fix them!”
Mortal Kombat X will also be heading to Xbox 360 and PS3 in June. Stay tuned for more details on sales.
