Mortal Kombat 11 has officially become the best selling Mortal Kombat game ever by selling over 12 million units worldwide, which has helped the total franchise video game sales surpass 73 million console units to date.
Warner Bros. shared the news in a press release where it also confirmed that Mortal Kombat Mobile has amassed 138 million installs worldwide.
“When Mortal Kombat launched nearly 30 years ago, I never dreamed it would grow into the franchise it is today with more than 73 million games sold,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios and Co-Creator of Mortal Kombat. “We have some of the most passionate fans in the world and we appreciate the support they have shown us over the years.”
This news follows NetherRealm’s announcement that it is now shifting its focus to its next project and that, “after more than two years of supporting Mortal Kombat 11, DLC for the game, including characters, has come to an end.”
Mortal Kombat 11 became the best-selling game in the franchise by passing Mortal Kombat X’s nearly 11 million units sold worldwide, as revealed during a Rapid-Fire interview with Game Informer.
