Mortal Kombat X Delayed on Xbox 360 and PS3

Mortal Kombat X is set for release on April 14th 2015, at least for some.

If you're rocking a PS4 or Xbox One, then you can get ready to finish them on that date, but if you're on older hardware you won't be so lucky. Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment have just confirmed that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of MKX won't release until summertime, likely the end of June.

This won't be the last time that older gen versions of games are delayed, especially as the gulf between what the two console generations are capable of widens still further. Right now, there are more than enough Xbox 360s and PS3's out there in the wild to absolutely justify releasing major titles on the systems, but that won't always be the case. As is increasingly common, the old-gen version is being made by a different company - High Voltage Software, who most recently developed the superhero fighting title Injustice: Gods Among Us.

For long time fans of the series, any delay is less than welcome, especially when it might feel like you're being punished for not being able to upgrade to the pricier console. But the differences in the architecture means that essentially two different games have to be developed with the same feel, and that doesn't always work out as we saw with the release of Shadow of Mordor.

Mortal Kombat X comes to PS4 and Xbox One on the 14th of April 2015. It should arrive on PS3 and Xbox 360 by the end of June.
