The MK Franchise Has Reached New Sales Milestones [UPDATE]

Post by Roy Arkon »

<!--Tags: mkx, mkxl, mk11--> Right before Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate has been released, Ed Boon confirmed that the previous game in the Mortal Kombat series, Mortal Kombat XL, has sold nearly 11 million copies, making it the best selling game in the history of the series. In October last year, Ed Boon also confirmed just before the Ultimate update for MK11U came out, that MK11U has sold 8 million copies worldwide.

Now it has been confirmed by Warner Bros. Games, as reported via GamePress, that MK11U not only surpassed it's previous sales number, but even MKXL's sales number, by hitting over 12 Million copies sold worldwide in less than two years and a quarter. On top of that, thanks to this gigantic milestone, the overall Mortal Kombat series has reached the astonishing amount of 73 million sales overall, making it the best selling fighting game franchise of all time. Also ,the Mortal Kombat Mobile app has reached 138 million downloads. And finally, the press release from WB Games also confirmed that millions of players still actively play MK games on both consoles and mobile platforms.

Ed Boon also gave his word on these incredible news:

“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. We have some of the most passionate fans in the world and we appreciate the support they have shown us over the years”.

And then Boon came in to Twitter to send a huge thanks to all of the MK fans who have supported over the years.
UPDATE:
Ed Boon came to Twitter once again to clarify an important detail, and that is despite the huge milestone of MK11U reaching 12 million copies sold, it's still not the best selling game in the series yet, which means that MKXL, as of this moment, is still the best selling MK ever, although exact current sales numbers for MKXL are yet to be given. Boon however did state that MK11U is on it's way to be the best selling MK game ever.
These are undeniably fantastic news for the Mortal Kombat franchise, which only keeps growing more and more over time. We will see what the future has in store for the series, but for now, let us all enjoy these gigantic milestones for the series.
