New Mortal Kombat Game in the Works

A new Mortal Kombat game is in development and it may tie-in in some way to the upcoming 2015 movie, Mortal Kombat: Legacy.

That’s according to legacy producer Lance Sloane, who let slip a reference to the game in an interview with GamerhubTV

"Well, we've been in greenlight committee for a while at the studio,” he said. “We've got a great script. And 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 they're working on now. It's not 100% yet, but we're getting closer every day."

And that’s the bit. "Sync up with the launch of the game they’re working on now."

Now, developer NetherRealm hasn’t announced a new game at all, let alone suggested that it may tie-in with the movie. But regardless, it looks like Tancharoen may have let the cat out of the bag early.

@2: Street Fighter: The Movie was great you utter heathen.

Written and directed by the same guy who wrote action comedy Commando yet it's judged like people were expecting The Godfather.

Would be cool if the characters looked like they do on the Movies, some of them could really use a face lift.

I was unaware they were doing another movie based on MK. First one was good, didn't care too much for the second. If the movie does tie-in with an upcoming MK game and does it well, then I'm all for it :)

A new MK game being linked to the new movie sounds a bit of a bad move considering the film's a reboot of the original film and we already have the rebooted game on console.

Number #3 sum it up perfectly.

MK9 had its flaws but it was playable, Injustice was just a pain in the arse, especially online.

My whole thing is, how would they do MK10? MK9 had the original trilogy in one game, which were the only good MK games. Now that the first three tournaments are over with Shao Kahn's defeat in MK9, what's next for MK10? Anything after UMK3 was terrible.

In MK10 Lui Kang is a bad guy and Shang Tsung is a good guy. No joke. MK10 will be truly amazing!

Is it not Lance Sloane that "let the cat out of the bag early"? He appears to be the one who is quoted originally but then you mention Kevin T at the end?

I hope they let whoever did mortal kombat : rebirth do the new movie. That was awesome and exactly what needs to be done in a movie version of the game

I think this is all getting blown out of proportion...they never said it was going to be a game based off of the's very likely that this is the Mortal Kombat 10 we've been seems like he's trying to say that they're going to try to sync up release dates so the game comes out around the same time as the movie or vice versa

For all you stupids out there that obviously don't know jack about the MK story and what's canon and before you oh-so-stupidly ALREADY start referring to this new game as "MK10". It is NOT. Nor was MK 2011 'MK9'.

But then again some of you stupids don't give a jack about the MK story and didn't follow the game from the very start and didn't sacrifice your soul to Boon and Tobias out of complete respect and dedication like I did as the hugest fan of the series in every aspect. So before you all defile the franchise with your lackluster and stupidity in title correctness, I shall refresh all your tiny brains in what is canon in the franchise.

1.) Mortal Kombat
2.) Mortal Kombat II
3.) Mortal Kombat 3
*Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (revamp of MK3 with more characters)
*Mortal Kombat Trilogy (UMK3 +characters from MK2 that were left out, and including boss characters, basically everyone from the first 3 games but still MK3 afterall)
4.) Mortal Kombat 4
*Mortal Kombat Gold (MK4 +more characters)
5.) Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance (aka MK5)
6.) Mortal Kombat: Deception (aka MK6)
7.) Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (aka MK7 - was like a new MK Trilogy but actually has new story after MK: Deception, so it is MK7)
~Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (non-canon mashup game featuring MK and DC characters; this is like a side-game and is not considered in the MK nor the DC universe. IT IS NOT, I REPEAT NOT MK8)
8.) Mortal Kombat (aka MK8, new game continuing the franchise from the end of MK: Armageddon but forcing Raiden to use magic to go back in time to retry the events of the first MK; this game leads to a new alternate but canon story of the original MK Trilogy)
9.) new Mortal Kombat game (unconfirmed so far but if it continues from MK 2011 it will be MK9; if it is a pure movie collaboration spinoff then it may not even be MK9 and we might not even see an MK9 for years to come)

MK vs DCU is where you all are going wrong. It is similar to a side-game and is not considered in the MK nor the DC universe. IT IS NOT, I REPEAT NOT MK8. If any of you would have noticed if you watched the intro from the story of MK 2011, the game carries off from the end of MK: Armageddon (MK7) and shows Raiden's new try at the MK tournaments, thus effectively carrying on the story and making it MK8. And of course I left out plenty of MK games like Sub-Zero Mythologies, Shaolin Monks and Special Forces. Those are all side games and backstory I am not placing them into the same pile of non-canon like MK vs. DCU just because I excluded them, but I am simply so sick of this referring to MK 2011 as 'MK9' and soon to be sick of the new game being referred to as 'MK10' retardation.

Please people, cease your excessive brain-deadery and come back to the land of the living. :)
