Wait, Did Ed Boon Just Hint at a New Mortal Kombat Game?

Posted by Sammy Barker


Twitter troll Ed Boon is notorious for his online tricks and teases, but there has to be more to the Mortal Kombat maker’s latest 140 character message. In addition to an image of a car with an ‘MKX’ logo on the rear, the legendary developer wrote: “Hmmm... I wonder what the X stands for?” American outfit NetherRealm Studios is currently rumoured to be working on a tenth entry in its flagship fighting franchise, so we suspect that the luminary knows exactly what the letter means.

Last year, Warner Bros producer Lance Sloane hinted that the Illinois-based organisation was hard at work on a sequel to the series’ bloody reboot, which originally released on the PlayStation 3 back in 2011. However, there have also been rumours regarding an Injustice: Gods Among Us follow-up, which is supposedly due out next year. We suspect that one of the two will be officially announced at E3 next month. The question is: which would you prefer? Land an uppercut in the comments section below.

I've heard this was happening anyway, I look forward to this game, see where the story goes. Would love to play this game on PS4.

Definitely MK. Injustice just seemed like an inferior version of MK9.

I Predigten that x in my Mortal kombat Post in the Forum! All hail me lol!

I'm stoked for this.

My only question is how the hell are they approaching the story this time around. Almost everyone dies in the reboot.

And not only that, sub zero is now a cyborg.

Maybe they're paving the way for zombie liu kang with his , I don't know. I'm definitely looking forward to this.

Hopefully they'll be able to add more slice points with the next gen hardware. If you recall cyraxs net fatality where the net only slices the head, neck, arms, legs, etc when it shouldve cut the entire body into tiny little pieces. Let's see.....

I would much prefer a Mortal Kombat game, though this time I'd like to see the Predator as a cameo.

MK is a little too gorey for me, so I'd rather have another Injustice. It would also be interesting if they made another IP with a new license.



Chouzetsu said:

@Jaz007 I, on the other hand, agree completely. MK's fatalities have always made me sick to my stomach... Some people like that but to me it's just disgusting. @SecondServing and @KAPADO are just being intolerant fools



Tasuki said:


Knock it off guys, just because some people find MK to gory doen't make them a baby or wimp. Remember it takes all kinds of gamers with different tastes to make up the gaming community. If you don't have something nice to say don't comment especially if its to insult a fellow gamer/community member.



Tasuki said:

I personally would love to see a sequel to Injustice right now but that's cause I have been in a big DC/Marvel mood lately, that and I still have yet to play Mortal Kombat.



KAPADO said:

Oh snap the NFP is here no more bad behavior.
But seriously is this kindergarten? How offended can you be by someone calling you a baby?

And no flipping the kindergarten level name calling against me



Tasuki said:

@KAPADO: What you think is non offensive to you might be offensive to someone else. Also keep in mind that it is part of the community rules

"Please show respect for all members at Push Square."

You might be joking honestly I don't know but in print different things can be seen as different things unfortunately. What can be a harmless joke can turn into a big problem for the staff here and not only that can result in a ban for you from the site and you wouldn't want that and we wouldn't want to see you banned. Just be careful what you say to other users, that's all. Also try to keep the comments to the article at hand really calling someone a baby just cause they dont like MK has nothing to do with the article at hand.



Tasuki said:

@SecondServing: It's Ok. I am thinking that you and KAPADO were joking but as I said in my previous post things typed out can always look different then they are meant to be. We dont need to be upsetting other users over something as silly as what games they prefer or not prefer. As I said it takes all kinds of different gamers to make up the world.



MitchVogel said:

I don't think the x means 10 I think it means crossover. What if Injustice 2 and MK10 are the same thing?



MoleZandor said:

The X stands for X-Ray, the whole game will be in x-ray mode so you can constantly see bits of bone snapping as they are fighting.
