Mortal Kombat for PS4 is not going to happen, sorry. Currently, it is only listed for the PS5, Xbox Series X, PC, and, strangely, Switch. With the exception of the Switch edition, this means the game is virtually entirely a current-gen release.
That’s unlikely to alter, with a clear shift away from last-gen consoles in recent months, owing to several early cross-gen releases. So, if you were expecting better news, here’s all we know so far regarding Mortal Kombat PS4’s release date.
Mortal Kombat 1 Ps4 Release Date
There are currently no plans for a Mortal Kombat 1 PS4 release. The game was revealed in mid-May, with a clear platform lineup of PS5, Xbox Series X, PC, and Switch, which can be seen when pre-ordering the game.
That Mortal Kombat 1 pre-order information is essentially confirmation. Mortal Kombat 11 was undoubtedly published on PS4 because it was released immediately before PS5, which it did finally release.
However, the favor was not returned this time, with the sequel exclusively available on the PlayStation 5. With the latest PlayStation 5 out for a while now, cross-platform releases are dwindling as developers focus on the benefits of current technology and abandon older devices.
While Netherrealm Studios has not commented on the lack of a PS4 release for Mortal Kombat 1, likely that the company does not want to be held up by releasing a cross-platform game.
Obviously, the PS4 is still a viable device with a large user base. Still, the latest Mortal Kombat 1 gameplay is certainly leveraging all the rib cage-breaking ick tech it can from current tech, making a lower-spec PS4 version doubtful.

Mortal Kombat 1 Storyline
By the end of Mortal Kombat 11 and its Aftermath expansion, reality had been reset thanks to a newly empowered Liu Kang and Kronika’s Hourglass mechanism. This timeline, known as the New Era, is guarded by Kang and features recognizable individuals in redesigned positions.
Some things, however, never change, and as seen in the reveal video, legendary antagonists like Shang Tsung are still up to no good even after being offered a second chance at peace.
In previous trailers and gameplay, we’ve seen Raiden reborn as a mortal who eventually becomes chosen to represent Earthrealm in the Mortal Kombat tournament, Kung Lao joins the fight in search of glory, and a Reptile transitions from villainous lackey to outcast mutant seeking meaning in life. Shao Khan was demoted from Outworld emperor to bloodthirsty general under Queen Sindel’s watchful gaze.
This is only the tip of the iceberg, as Mortal Kombat 1’s reset history includes all-new beginnings and roles for the game’s entire cast.
