Mortal Kombat 2011 Sells Close to 3 Million Copies!

08/17/2011 :: Posted at 02:16 PM by queve

Gamespot has posted an article reporting Mortal Kombat's (2011) huge financial success.

The gaming website states that Nether Realm Studio's latest installment has now sold "close to" 3 million copies all around the world. From their article:


"…the success of the game has already paid for WBIE's costs acquiring the Mortal Kombat series' bankrupt original publisher, Midway. WBIE picked up the bulk of Midway's operations and intellectual property in 2009 for a final cost of $49 million"


Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president, Martin Tremblay, spoke in an interview with MCV about Mortal Kombat's success. From the interview:


"We are pleased with the success of Mortal Kombat so far. With the launch of Mortal Kombat, we have already paid for the acquisition of the Midway assists, and we are just beginning to leverage this acquisition with much more to come"


Another positive note that is worth to remember: Mortal Kombat has also made the NPD Group's monthly US retail best sellers chart for four months running.

This is wonderful news for all the Mortal Kombat fans around the world. We would like to congratulate NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. for their well deserved success!
