Mortal Kombat 9 is now officially underway as Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe ships 1.8 million units
Mortal Kombat 9 is now officially underway says Ed Boon, co-creator of the Mortal Kombat series and the mastermind behind all the core titles in the franchise including the most recent MK8 or Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe as it was officially named.
“We’re already hard at work on our next version of Mortal Kombat, and look forward to being able to reveal more details in the future,” Boon said in a press release announcing that MK vs DCU had shipped (not sold) 1.8 million copies.
As the game has not even been “officially” announced there are obviously no solid details on the new MK game at this point but it is highly likely that the game will go in a much more violent direction than Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe due to several comments that Ed Boon had made even previous to that game’s release when people found out that the game would be rated Teen and thus less violent than previous MK titles.
Of course, this is just speculation, for all we know the next game is in fact Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe 2!
