In yesterday’s Lgndary Thought, I touched on how some companies try to “delay” news, and hope people forget about it by the time they make an announcement. It looks like this exact thing is happening with yet another game. Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!
For those that haven't yet read the thought from yesterday; I briefly talked about companies easing fans into bad news. Blizzard just recently did this with World of Warcraft. In the latest expansion, flying was not available in the new areas, something that Blizzard said would come in a later patch. Instead of releasing said patch, they announced that flying would not be added in a patch, and that future expansions would not support flying either.
I find tactics such as this awful, and I am starting to suspect that Warner Bros. is doing the same thing with Mortal Kombat on PS3. When Mortal Kombat X released for PS4 in April, Warner announced that the PS3 version had been delayed to June. But now that June is almost here, it seems as if the PS3 version has yet again been delayed, this time to Fall.
Obviously I don’t know for sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if the PS3 version never came out. It’s a shame that publishers feel the need to lie about their intentions. They might receive some blowback when a version is cancelled, but I think people will be far more upset if they have been lead along for awhile before the game is cancelled. I do hope I am wrong though, and Mortal Kombat X releases later this year for PS3 users to enjoy. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
