‘Mortal Kombat XL’ Latest News & Update: What Does MKXLPC Stands For? Creator’s Tweet Confirmed Game Is Coming PC? More Details Revealed!

More than 10,000 players voted for "Mortal Kombat XL" to come to PC in a Twitter poll set up by co-creator himself, Ed Boon. When the poll finally closed in, Boon tweeted to acknowledge the 48% vote saying that he heard them. Does that mean that the second expansion, all-inclusive edition, already has thumbs up for PC?

Another tweet from the co-builder that raised the hopes of PC lover was, though quite out of topic, was "Maybe we should Karry eXtra Long People who Care?" It does not seem to make sense but when you take out all capitalized letters, you get MKXLPC which could only mean "Mortal Kombat XL" PC.

Truth of the matter, the clamor to bring "Mortal Kombat XL" to PC has started a petition in change.org with a title "Give PC Mortal Kombat X A Chance." Since January, the appeal has collected 11,273 signatures.  That is not surprising since the game has more than 500 thousand followers. That is not to say that all of them has positive reviews, but even just half of it could make their voices loud.

The petition could have started when NetherRealm Studios posted on Twitter last Jan that "Mortal Kombat XL" and "Kombat Pack 2" will only be available on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. It can be recalled that the PC port had its share of problems with the original game when it was released on April 2015. Though gamers were able to combat with Alien, Bo' Rai Cho, Leatherface and Triborg, PC gamers never got the taste of the second batch of characters.

If NetherRealm and Warner Bros. will heed the call of the petition, "Mortal Kombat XL" could soon be available to PC. But, some believe that the two companies have a lot of loose ends to tie as their previous game was so disastrous than one fan even called for a boycott. Stay tuned with GameNGuide for more updates on the latest news of "Mortal Kombat XL."
