The good news, though, is that this looks like a planned move from NetherRealm Studios. The servers might be down for a while, but you should have a new character to use when the game gets back online.

Is Mortal Kombat 1 down?

Yup, the servers for Mortal Kombat 1 are down at the moment. This is a planned maintenance for the game, though, as NetherRealm studios prepares to put Omni-Man from the series Invincible into the roster. Here is the timing for the full maintenance:

November 9 from 9 am to 10 pm EST.

Whenever a game is adding a new character, whether it's Mortal Kombat 1, Overwatch 2, or even Pokémon Unite, they usually have a long maintenance where the servers need to take a break. The DLC for Mortal Kombat 1 has been one of the most anticipated parts of the game, though, with other characters like Homelander and Peacemaker on their way. I can't wait to see Omni Man in action, personally.
