Mortal Kombat


 

Usually, game reveals are delayed due to needing more developer time. This week, a planned Mortal Kombat 11 reveal has been delayed for a completely different reason: inclement weather.

Mortal Kombat 11 developer NetherRealm Studios is based in Chicago, part of the country that’s being most severely affected by the current polar vortex. Temperatures there are expected to drop as low as -60 Fahrenheit, emergency conditions that experts warn can cause frostbite within minutes.

While the game’s next reveal stream, dubbed the Kombat Kast, was originally scheduled to air this week, NetherRealm Studios isn’t risking the safety of the developers, guests, and other streamers who would have appeared at the presentation.

“Everything will be fine,” community manager Tyler Lansdown said on Twitter. “Just best to take precautions. I want the stream to be the best it can be, and if someone can’t get there, well, that’s not as fun!”

The Kombat Kast will now take place on Tuesday, February 5th, at noon Pacific Time. If you’re in the area affected by the polar vortex, remember to stay safe and warm yourself.
