The last Mortal Kombat managed to reinvigorate the franchise by returning it to its roots, and that decision to bring back buckets of blood and assorted viscera made the game a huge success. I’m not a fan of fighting games — mostly because I’m dreadful at them — but that didn’t keep me from sinking an inordinate amount of time in it.
With the success of the game, the Legacy web series and the upcoming film, the Mortal Kombat franchise is bigger than ever. It should probably come as no surprise that there’s another game in the works. Details after the break.
In an interview with GamerHub.tv at Comic-Con earlier this month, Mortal Kombat Legacy producer Lance Sloane hinted that there’s another game that’s currently in development. Nothing’s been confirmed, but Sloan said the game is planned to release alongside the next film, which was recently green-lit.
“We’ve been in greenlight committee for a while at the studio and we’ve got a great script,” Sloane told GamerHub.tv. “We’ve got a great director with Kevin Tancharoen, who is on board.”
“It’s just figuring out the business side of it and when we would do it and when we would launch it and how do we sync up with the launch of the game that they’re working on now. It’s not 100 percent yet, but we’re getting closer every day.”
