Mortal Kombat in Mortal Kombat is no longer available for purchase on Steam.
According to the notification posted to Mortal Kombat: Mortal Edition On the store page, "at the publisher's request" delete the game.
Warner Bros. is the publisher of Mortal Kombat, and the reason for the withdrawal was unknown at press time.
On resetera, its removal may have something to do with Freddy Kruger's game as an invited combatant.
According to the Bloody Disgusting report, as early as September 2019, Wes Craven's residence was re-acquired in the United States against Freddy Kruger and the movie "Nightmare in Elm Street" copyright. Warner Bros. and its subsidiary, New Line Cinema, are behind the horror movie.
As a result, Warner Bros. is likely to lose its right to include DLC's Freddy in the game, or the company is working to re-authorize the role.
Again, this is only a temporary guess, as Warner has not announced an announcement that the game will be discontinued on Steam.
Mortal Kombat was released in 2011, and "Live Mortal Edition" was released in 2012. As of press time, you can still download Freddy as DLC in the Xbox Store for 360. "Live" is still available on the PS Store in the United States for PS3.
