- Creator Ed Boone has hinted that Mortal Kombat XL is coming to PC
- This comes eight months after publisher Warner Bros said it would not
- It contains all downloadable content as well as the base game
A few days ago, Ed Boone, creator of the Mortal Kombat series hinted at bringing Mortal Kombat XL to PC.
In addition to Ed Boone’s tweets, updates to SteamDB – a third party site that tracks Steam listings, show a particular app renamed to MKXL Enhanced Online Beta.There hasn’t been an official announcement from publisher Warner Bros just yet.
Considering that Shadow of Mordor 2 was a no-show at E3 2016 and the Batman remasters are still a way off, bringing Mortal Kombat XL to PC might seem like a peace offering to PC gamers but could just very well be the only other major release the company has this year. Well, aside from Lego Star Wars.
This version of the game contains Mortal Kombat X and all its downloadable content (DLC). It was limited to the PS4 and Xbox One, much to the ire of a rather vocal PC fanbase. At the time a studio representative took to popular Mortal Kombat forum, TestYourMight.com to confirm that the Mortal Kombat XL would not be making it to PC.
In the same discussion, fans realised that it sold nearly half a million units on Steam. The data wasdiscovered on Steam Spy, a third-party service that tracks sales on Steam. It’s known for its fairly accurate sales estimates. Around 500,000 units sold is not too bad considering how poorly it was received at launch, forcing users to download most of the game even if they did buy it on disc.
