New Mortal Kombat title possibly in development - MK Legacy producer: We want to release the movie along side the game they're working on now GamerHubStudios recently conducted an interview with Warner Bros. producer of the Mortal Kombat Legacy series, Lance Sloane, to discuss the upcoming Mortal Kombat feature film. During the interview, Sloane let a small but very juicy bit of information out stating that a new MK title may currently be in development.

Sloane says that the team is currently analyzing many factors for the movie and mentions that they are looking to release the movie alongside the "game they're (presumably NetherRealm Studios) is working on now."

Check out the quote below.

GamerHub.TV: What is the current status when it comes to a Mortal Kombat movie?

Lance Sloane: Well, we’ve been in greenlight committee for a while at the studio. 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.

Back in 1995, the original Mortal Kombat movie and Mortal Kombat 3 were released around the same time, to coincide with one another. It is possible that Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios may be aiming to do the same with these future projects.

As long the net code is a lot better than MK9. Then I can't wait.

As long as it doesn't feel like a fighting game underwater.

MK isnt bad, but I'm more hype for that GGX story.

Mortal Kombat (2011) was a retelling of MK 1-3. I'm guessing this one will take place during MK 4, and maybe Deadly Alliance?

I'm guessing is for the new consoles. Cool stuff keeping MK fresh.

With a MK movie in production it's pretty obvious MK10 would be released along side it

With real video game franchises, The movie is an expensive ad for the game.

They should call next game MKX for Mortal Kombat Xtreme (and X being the Roman numeral for 10).

And this car should be repainted with the MK Dragon logo and given away as a promo prize in a sweepstakes:

I can easily be a top paid business exec with these great ideas.

You're missing the point by a bit man. The game isn't going to be based on the movie, it just so happens that they'll come out around the same time.

And for the record I know what you're referencing, it just doesn't fit with this context.

BlackHart said on July 26, 2013 at 2:03 p.m.

#6 i agree, i've played every MK that has come out, but now its time for them to evolve, NO MORE stiff animations and janky awkward movements.

This is exciting news. I really hope they keep some of the mechanics they used in Injustice. I've always felt that the block button was a hassle to use and I would love to see traits make their debut in MK. That's probably my favorite feature about Injustice. Very creative and original on NRS's part. Either way, I'm getting hype.

#17
Rahavic said on July 26, 2013 at 2:15 p.m.

@15 Agreed, they gotta work on the damn physics already. Mk9 and IGAU make it hard to get passed their animations. I still like MK9 though over Injustice, so I'm hyped for a 10.

hope it's for next gen

Im game but that net code has to improve or no buy for me.

#20
euphoria12 said on July 26, 2013 at 2:36 p.m.

If there is improved netcode, and upped the game speed to about where injustice is, day one buy from me for sure

#21
AnaboliChris said on July 26, 2013 at 2:47 p.m.

Injustice netcode was an improvement compared to MK9 so that itself will tell you that the netcode will be better than MK9.

Dont forget that Injustice was made by NRS/Warner Bros.

#22
badjab326 said on July 26, 2013 at 2:51 p.m.

Ehh, the MK9 roster was perfect. idk how MK10 could be better with all the chars they killed off in MK9.

#23
Pachendrix said on July 26, 2013 at 2:57 p.m.

As long as the movie follows the steps of the first one, instead of the second movie, everything is OK. As for the game, MK9 was amazing, Injustice, is amazing, so there's no reason to think MK10 won't be amazing.

misdaa said on July 26, 2013 at 3:09 p.m.

Can you please make the game not slow and clunky as hell? The hits don't even feel like they're actually touching, and the frame count on moves is ridiculous.

#25
qOcOp said on July 26, 2013 at 3:24 p.m.

Very creative and groundbreaking by nrs. pushing back to block.

lulz.

#26
GreedyMcGurgleburg said on July 26, 2013 at 3:26 p.m.

Only if they have double helix produce the game.

#27
Chunners said on July 26, 2013 at 3:45 p.m.

Based on how popular MK9 was and now Injustice, it was a no-brainer that they would be making MK10 for next gen.

The real question is, where do they take the story from here? Obviously being an anniversary number they're going to want to bring all the characters back, but how can they? How many "everyone is dead but magically return to life" story arcs can they throw at us?

The return of Zombie Lui Kang and friends is one possibility.

maxi2099 said on July 26, 2013 at 4:11 p.m.

The story and roster probably will start with Mythologies Sub-Zero and change back to MK4/Gold (after 2011), with new things because of the plot change from the remake.
I highly doubt they will take elements from MK5 now.

Protip: Having the best netcode doesn't mean anything when either one (or both) player's internet connection is bad and/or are situated on opposite ends of the world.

I hate to burst your bubble, but until the entire world 'upgrades' to gigabit speeds internet (Which won't happen in our lifetimes due to the staggeringly high cost), there will always be lag. Lag is here to stay.

Another MK, great *ResidentSleeper*

#32
AriesWarlock said on July 26, 2013 at 4:35 p.m.

I was thinking they should work on a "Ultra" MK9.

#33
brasssmunkye said on July 26, 2013 at 4:43 p.m.

there is def. a NEW MK in the works, most likely for xbone/ps4
NRS isn't very good at keeping things super tight lipped, and that's okay.

#34
SummerUndercover said on July 26, 2013 at 7:33 p.m.

@26 I was referring to traits. I thought that was pretty clear.

Ashrah, please!

still waiting for the NRS Horror fighting game with Freddy, Jason, Pinhead, Mike, etc Scorpion would be a guest star again
