Mortal Kombat X abandoning PC support

Mortal Combat X has decided that the PC is not worth supporting and that only console players matter.

Mortal Combat X Pack 2

Mortal Kombat X's upcoming DLC will not be coming to the PC and will be Xbox One and PS4 only. This news was told to the community via Twitter by NetherRealms community manager Tyler Landsdown.

"Mortal Kombat XL and Kombat Pack 2 will available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only."

No explanation was given by the community manager so PC gamers are understandably confused and angry at this news. The matter of fact way it was told with no hint at further information has made many people feel that NetherRealms are just not bothered with their customers on PC.

Mortal Kombat X did sell worse on Steam than on both of the consoles but sales figures on steam spy have shown it has sold half a million copies so the numbers aren't small enough to justify that there will be a loss by porting the DLC to PC.

Although plenty will say, quite correctly, that the number players still playing the game on a regular basis on Steam are small but I am confident in saying that it isn't that the players don't get the game, or some other rubbish developers like saying when their game is panned for some reason. It is due to the fact that the PC port was generally bad with the dodgy download system the game used for installation on a system, and the poor quality with matchmaking for online play with long times waiting for finding a partner to fight and bad connection when an opponent was actually found. 

It does just seem that the developers have decided that PC is beneath them as the player drop off will be due their shoddy launch product, and that the Mortal Kombat XL DLC has a function to improve online connectivity shows they don't care for improving their product. A product which PC gamers PAID for and paid the same as console and that they a far worse experience with.  

It is quite frankly lazy and downright rude to those who paid and played this game on PC.
