Mortal Kombat X has sold more copies faster than any other game in the franchise's storied history.
In a series of tweets, series creator Ed Boon said there are "literally millions of players getting online".
“Thank you everyone for making Mortal Kombat X the biggest launch in MK history,” he said. “You made the game FAR exceed our wildest expectations. The mobile and console games have had literally millions of players getting online in a really short period of time, hitting our servers hard.
“We love that so many players want to play MKX and are working (like mad) on all the issues some of you are experiencing! We WILL fix them!”
Mortal Kombat X is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be out on last-gen consoles later this year.
CD Projekt's highly anticipated RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has finally gone gold, meaning there will be no more delays.
“We worked so damn hard over the past three years to bring you this game,” said CD Projekt boss Adam Badowski. “From the corrupt nobles in Novigrad to ancient monsters lurking in deep forests, to the bustling cities, colorful ports and breathtaking vistas; all the people, all the places.
“We literally spent tens of thousands of hours to turn all that into an adventure that will kick your ass and make you want to come for more. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has gone gold and will soon be yours.”
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood will have more of a pulp B-movie vibe than The New Order, Bethesda says.

“There’s more stuff about Da’at Yichud technology, even though we don’t necessarily call it that,” said senior producer John Jennings.
EA is pulling the plug on four of its free-to-play games.

Players will be able to ghost their way through the entirety of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Eidos Montreal has confirmed.

2K Australia, the developer of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and BioShock 2, has shut down.
