Mortal Kombat X launched this week and it's off to a franchise-best start, according to series co-creator Ed Boon. He writes on Twitter that Mortal Kombat X enjoyed the "biggest launch" in the history of Mortal Kombat, though he didn't say if this was in terms of units sold or some other measurement. We've reached out to Warner Bros. for clarification.
Thank you everyone for making Mortal Kombat X the biggest launch in MK history. You made the game FAR exceed our wildest expectations....!!— Ed Boon (@noobde) April 16, 2015

Mortal Kombat X's release on Tuesday, however, did not go entirely smoothly. Boon thanked fans for their patience as developer NetherRealm works through some unspecified issues.
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!— Ed Boon (@noobde) April 16, 2015
Just wanted to let you know we are ABSOLUTELY listening to you, reading all your tweets & appreciate your patience! pic.twitter.com/VAUckT3idq— Ed Boon (@noobde) April 16, 2015
The entire Mortal Kombat franchise, which debuted in the early '90s, has sold more than 35 million copies to date. This number doesn't include sales of Mortal Kombat X.
