Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition Removed From Steam
Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition has been available for some time, allowing players to jump in and play as their favorite kombatants. However, in an interesting turn of events, the game has been removed from Steam.
According to the game’s Steam page, “At the request of the publisher, Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition is no longer available for sale on Steam.” This, of course, has left many wondering why exactly the title was pulled from the digital store. As it turns out, it just might have something to do with the Freddy Krueger DLC.
As reported by Bloody Disgusting back in September, Wes Craven’s estate reacquired the rights to both A Nightmare on Elm Street as well as Freddy Krueger himself. Now that Warner Bros. no longer own the rights to the character, it is possible that this is why they pulled Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition from Steam. This is purely speculation at this point, so we will have to wait until NetherRealm or Warner Bros. speak up about the decision.
