Warner Bros community administrator, Yorick, has finally announced that Mortal Kombat X will be axed from the pipeline due to some quality issues. Based on the official statement, it says that after months of development, they are finally nixing the project, and the entire organization was sorry about the unpopular decision.

In addition, the team said that they have worked diligently with the project to meet the bar that was set by the current generation version of the game, but they fell short. The Mortal Kombat X's cancelation is somewhat expected due to its prior push backs with regards to the game's formal launch. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release of the game was pressed back to summer and was again moved to fall, driving the speculation of the game's nixing.

Another angle that lead into halting the production of the Mortal Kombat X game on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 would be the issues that he PC production had during the development period. Mortal Kombat X was initially released for the iOS, Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One platform on April 7, this year. The Android platform came next when it was released on the 21st of the same month.

During its release, game review authority, GameRankings and Metacritic gave the game an impressive score, most especially the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases. However, its PC version, which was hounded by tons of issues, received a very low score. Mortal Kombat's development kicked off in 2012. Due to the commercial success of previous versions, future plans were laid down until the conception of the 10th generation this year.

Warner Bros and Yarick confirmed that a full refund will be awarded to those who had pre-ordered the game.
