According to publisher Warner Bros. Games, the iconic Mortal Kombat franchise has sold more than 73 million games since worldwide, while the latest game in the series, Mortal Kombat 11 sold over 12 million copies.

The reboot of the iconic fighting franchise Mortal Kombat was probably one of the best decisions that Warner Bros. ever made when it comes to their gaming department. Ever since the publisher released Mortal Kombat back in 2012, the franchise has been nothing but success both in terms of sales and player reception.

Today, Warner Bros. shared some numbers behind the Mortal Kombat franchise. The publisher revealed that Mortal Kombat 11, the latest instalment in the series has sold over 12 million copies globally on all platforms.

Additionally, the franchise has sold more than 73 million games worldwide, which is certainly a huge achievement. Of course, the Mortal Kombat franchise still can't come close to games like Call of Duty or FIFA, which are annual releases but the game is not trying to compete with these and its main rivals from the same genre like Tekken, Soulcalibur and Street Fighter are way behind Scorpion, Sub Zero and the crew.

Mortal Kombat 11 is still going strong with a huge player base but unfortunately, NetherRealm have announced that the DLC support for the game is ending, meaning there won't be any new fighters coming in the future. The developer will be focusing on their new project going forward.

Mortal Kombat 11 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Switch.
