MOR­TAL KOM­BAT X Scrapped on 360 and PS3

Starburst Magazine - - Pixel Juice -

Things just keep get­ting worse for High Volt­age Soft­ware. Af­ter mak­ing a bad start to their con­ver­sion run on the latest Mor­tal Kom­bat game with a PC ver­sion that was rid­dled with bugs and pretty damned aw­ful, it looks like they won’t be get­ting the chance to re­deem them­selves with the ver­sions they were work­ing on for the Xbox 360 and PS3 ei­ther.

Warner Broth­ers has an­nounced that it is pulling the plug on the con­ver­sions fol­low­ing a mul­ti­tude of de­lays. The games, which were meant to come out along­side ev­ery other ver­sion of the ti­tle, have clearly been hit with plenty of de­vel­op­ment trou­bles, with WB stat­ing that they sim­ply can’t get them out and any­body who has pre-or­dered will be get­ting a re­fund.

While they were diplo­matic in their state­ment in re­gards to High Volt­age, you have to be­lieve that this sig­nals the end for any work­ing re­la­tion­ship the two com­pa­nies had. Whether High Volt­age will be able to make it to the end of 2015 with their rep­u­ta­tion in­tact re­mains to be seen. Nintendo’s res­i­dent foxy pi­lot has never quite hit the heights he achieved back in the days of the SNES and N64, even though none of the sub­se­quent games have been aw­ful. This game is es­sen­tially a re­boot, rather than a di­rect se­quel, and will fea­ture the tra­di­tional Star Fox game­play as imag­ined by the won­der­ful minds at Plat­inum Games. If noth­ing else, that means that you can ex­pect qual­ity and per­haps a touch of quirk­i­ness from this latest in the se­ries, which is also the first to be re­leased in about nine years.
