The original story (published April 23, 2019) follows:
Mortal Kombat 11 is finally coming to PC and consoles today, and like many online multiplayer games, gamers are reporting server issues on launch day.
While some players experience a server lag, others cannot connect at all. We see a lot of these reports on social media platforms like Twitter. Here are some tweets:
It should be mentioned that not all gamers face these server issues. We haven’t found any official word on these issues so far, but we’re keeping an active eye on the situation and will update the story as soon as we have something of interest.
Until then, share your current Mortal Kombat 11 experience with us in our comments section below.
Update 1 (January 5, 2022)
8:55 am (IST): Many MK11 players are having trouble with the game again as online services appear to be down and not working at the moment.
This is why I hated Mortal Kombat 11. It requires internet connection for everything, even to earn rewards in single player modes. This means that if the servers are down, the game is unplayable. @NetherRealm, you better not make Mortal Kombat 12 an always online game. (Source)
Can anyone tell me how to fix this server problem it says “you are not connected to mortal kombat 11 servers. Please connect or try again later” (Source)
Besides Twitter, reports of the outage also poured into services such as Failure detector.
Fortunately, WB Games acknowledged the outage and confirmed that they are working on a fix for the issue.
We are aware that players are currently unable to access online services in Mortal Kombat 11. This is under investigation, and we will send another message when things are back up and running. Thank you for your patience. (Source)
Update 2 (January 6, 2022)
10:52 am (IST): WB Games took to Twitter to confirm that any servers that were not working recently are now back online.
All platforms are now back online. If players resume a previous MK11 session from a standby state on consoles, they may need to relaunch the game. We will continue to monitor any new reports that arrive, so please let us know if you have any issues. . Thank you! (Source)
