Midway today announced that Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe managed to sell 1.8 million copies worldwide. The figure is thought to be above initial expectations, because let's be honest, they wouldn't have announced it otherwise.
Industry veteran and Mortal Kombat co-founder Ed Boon, stated that "Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was the result of countless hours of hard work by many people, and seeing the game surpass the million-seller plateau makes it worth all the effort."
In closing in the press release, Boon continues to confirm that the next Mortal Kombat (I believe it's 9) is already in development. "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" says Boon.
Can we expect an out-and-out Mortal Kombat title rather than a cross franchise offspring? Our senses tell us yes, so expect blood ... lots and lots of blood.
