As long as it's not "We got High Voltage back in to port the rest of the content to PC" when they mention it is coming.

He specifically acknowledged a tweet saying it sold 500k on PC, referencing his earlier tweet, "500,000"? He also confirmed the MAC version afterwards.

Yeah, pretty much a no brainer that it's Kombat Pack 2/XL with the new netcode for PC. Felt really sorry for the PC-only folk being left out of KP2 and importantly the new netcode. Imagine crossplay between all platforms. PS4+X1+PC+MAC+Linux and NX joining the party later in the year. TBH it would be good for the PC players if developers could implement crossplay with consoles in all available FG's today so the scene doesn't die sooner on PC.

If its MKXL for PC I'd only be interested if High Voltage Studios was gone and it was being handled in house.

I had to stop playing around the Jason release on PC. It just never worked for Radeon users after all their patching. Some even made it worse. I'll just buy a PS4 sometime this fall at this rate.

I hope it's a PC KP2/XL anouncement. We'll now be able to talk about the game without a PC complaint every other post (yes dropping the PC version was a massive shitty move, but the constant complaints everywhere are so annoying).

"Hey everyone! We want to remind everyone that we don't give a shit about the PC Version, despite how poorly HVS ported our game on your favorite platform. Please buy a console to experience the komplete edition of MKX. Thank you." - Ed Boon

You have like 1 post in the MK OT.

This news is not bad, just hope for existing purchasers of X they get the full game and update and patch and whatever for absolutely nothing.

Me, I would love to see an MK game with the new engine that plays exactly like MK3 (or 2). But pipe dreams.

Why would you want to go backwards gameplay wise? MK has never played better.

This was my guess too. PlayStation plus games are likely to be announced tomorrow.

They wouldn't put XL (which is in the teaser image) on Plus, probably just the base game if they did it to get people to buy DLC. So it's likely not that.

Actually just a Trojan Horse for a new Def Jam fighting game.

damage has already been done on PC

and honestly after playing the PC version of KI all afternoon... I have zero desire to go back to MKX.

Well, that is what the PC version of the game sold.

Netcode
which is apparently still ass if friends are to be believed
update coming to PC to finally soothe the hurt they caused PC owners?

Even if it is indeed a PC port of XL, damage is done. PC community is dead for that game unless you have some cross-play with the other consoles.

The PC community is completely dead, it's just far too late. They'd fuck it up anyway.

If it's coming to PC, it's probably more damage control then an actual apology.
They want some good will if they are going to bring Injustice 2 to PC.

But even if the new port is pristine, I would still be afraid of buying a new NRS game on PC day and date.
