NetherRealm Studios has announced that the PC version of Mortal Kombat 11 will not receive any cross-play support. This basically means that PC gamers won’t be able to play with their console friends, even if they purchase the new upcoming Ultimate Edition.
As NetherRealm Studios stated:
“Krossplay is currently supported for PS4 and Xbox One. PS5 and Xbox Series X|S support will be available on Nov. 17, in conjunction with the Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate release.”
Krossplay in Mortal Kombat 11 will put PlayStation and Xbox players into the same matchmaking pool for Online Kasual game modes. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will also have the option of manually joining the same designated Krossplay Online Rooms to play against each other.
This is truly disheartening as cross-play is a feature that most games should support on all platforms. We’ve seen a lot of games supporting it on the PC. Hell, Street Fighter 5 was among the first that offered cross-play support between PS4 and PC. And, to be honest, I don’t expect NetherRealm to add cross-play via a future update on the PC.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
