New Mortal Kombat game in the works, producer says

A follow-up to 2011's Mortal Kombat is in development, according to producer Lance Sloane. Sloane offhandedly mentioned a new game in the gorey fighter series when speaking with GamerHub about a new Mortal Kombat film.

"We've been in greenlight committee for a little while at the studio, and we've got a great script, and a great director with Kevin Tancharoen," Sloane said. "It's just figuring out the business side of it, and when we would do it, and how do we sync it up with the launch of the game that they're working on now, the next game. It's not 100 percent yet, but we're getting closer every day."

Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm Studios is still producing DLC for its most recent title, Injustice: Gods Among Us. But studio founder Ed Boon told CVG last year that he would like to wait for the next generation of consoles to arrive before creating another Mortal Kombat.

With both PS4 and Xbox One set to arrive before the end of 2013, kombatants might not have to wait too much longer to test their might.

    Very suspicious work here.

    I hope for a comeback of the konquest mode, maybe combined with a kreate-a-fighter system, where you action-RPG your way to your own unique fighter. I remember reading somewhere that Ed Boon wanted an MK RPG to happen some day.

    I just hope it doesn't turn out like Injustice, the most successful and overly-praised pile of shit of 2013. At least until the next CoD comes out.

    I dunno what you're talking about Injustice was a amazing. It was basically an updated & improved MK2011. Unlike SF4 which will just re-release the same game with 4 extra people and stamp a $40 price tag for it.

    Don't get me wrong, it's not like I run around hating everything. I REALLY wanted to like Injustice. I pre-ordered the fightstick and everything. I played it for like 3 hours ans wasn't having anywhere near as much fun as I did with MK. After spending loads of time getting good with my one character, I got shat on by a cheesy Superman and there was nothing I could do about it. It was not an improvement of MK; it was MK turned into King of Fighters, which I also hate. It took out all the fun and replaced it with juggling and bullshit combo-ing. On the note of SF, you can download the new version for $15, same as you pay for a season pass. Plus, they patch and balance the shit out it with every release.

    I see that someone's a 'Hardcore' gamer.
