The promised Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection patch is due out around Tuesday 6th December, Ed Boon has said.
The game was blighted by performance issues that made it unplayable for some online. A patch was promised in early September. It looks like it will arrive three months later.
What's taken so long? "Testing, submitting & approvals is a LONG process," Boon Tweeted.
"We have been made aware of the issues with the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection and are currently working on a patch to address them for all systems," Warner told Eurogamer in October.
"Our goal is to ensure the best gaming experience possible for anyone playing a Mortal Kombat game and aim to get things fixed asap. Please stay tuned for updates on when a patch will be released."
The downloadable fighter launched on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade on 31st August in the US.
In Europe it launched on Xbox only - and remains absent from the European PlayStation Store.
In October Sony's Andy Stewart blamed the game's failure to launch in Europe on PS3 on a "technical issue".
That might have meant Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, which acts independently from other SCE regions, decided the game wasn't up to scratch during the certification process.
MKAK is the first time the original Mortal Kombat arcade trilogy has been re-released in one package. Fighting fans get 2D classics Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 2 and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 in one bundle.
It was developed by Other Ocean in conjunction with main Mortal Kombat maker NetherRealm Studios.
