I posted about this earlier in another thread. Just to be clear: Pig refused to criticise NRS, and he chose his words very carefully as he is an active tournament player and didn't want to jeopardize his relationship with NRS. He said that we should be grateful that NRS keeps supporting the game and spends supposedly millions on GGPO and they stripped down their own code just to implement GGPO and overhaul the whole online code of the game. Pig also never said anything about that NRS chose GGPO over PC support but...
If you do the math: NRS realised early on that the online play in MKX is not good enough. They wanted to do something about it and apparently they have been working on it behind the scenes for months. Online play needed a a complete overhaul and cost a lot of money. In the meantime PC version turned out to be $h*t, needed constant patching and whatnot and it was still flawed after about 20 patches. So NRS needed money for GGPO, PC port took money away from them because of the need of patches. WB looked at the numbers, 500 000 fans were not enough for them to keep supporting the platform. GGPO took a lot of work and they had to strip down the code and rewrite it. And to implement it in the PC version, they should have done it ONCE MORE after it is done on consoles.
So there was no chance we could have the GGPO at the same time as the consoles. KP2 is another story but who knows? So it's possible that WB had plans about releasing an upgraded PC version of MKXL later but the whole situation was handled so badly that their reputation is beyond irreparable. But if they make enough money from the console versions of KP2 and MKXL to call it a success then what will make them to invest money into PC again?
I think pretty much everyone had that thought cross their mind. Yeah there is chance for PC to get MKXL as well. But let's look at the situation.
They will need weeks, maybe even months, to fully optimize GGPO on consoles after it's release. After that being done, MKX on PC will be pretty much dead. We will have SFV and KI. People will still remember that middle finger from WB/NRS. I don't know how many people will be still willing to spend money on MKXL PC version to begin with. I know die hard fans will do, some casuals. But again. MKXL would have to compete with FREE. How many people will choose to pay another crap load of money over free content? The only way they could get back at least some trust from people on PC community is if their released GGPO update on MKX for free. And that is not happening. So, for MKXL to come to PC, it is a super low chance. Very close to nonexistent.
