24 star Kiefer Sutherland confirms involvement in upcoming Mortal Kombat game

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • February 21, 2014 at 5:43 p.m. PST

IGN recently conducted an interview with actor Kiefer Sutherland, star of the hit television show 24, during which he confirmed having worked on an upcoming Mortal Kombat game.

While talking about his other video game role as Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Sutherland mentioned that he was also involved in an MK title. “I did Mortal Kombat, and that's such a huge game," Sutherland said, "but it’s so not like [MGS5]."

The actor noted that his work on this mysterious Mortal Kombat title is already complete, but did not divulge what his role was.

Hit the jump to continue reading.

Back in July of last year, Mortal Kombat Legacy series producer Lance Sloane stated that his team is aiming to release the MK Legacy feature film alongside "the game they’re working on now." It seems highly likely that NeatherRealm Studios currently has a new Mortal Kombat game in the works.

Curious, what could he be doing for the game other than voice work?

Maybe motion capture and scanning his head if they want a character to look exactly like him.

All I can imagine is all of Scorpion's dialogue being replaced with 100 different clips of "WHERE IS MY FAMILY?!".

Whatever part of the game he's involved in I'd prefer David Hayter.

So this means Shinnok (who I assume is going to be the main villain this time), is planning a terrorist attack on the U.S., hence Jack Bauer's involvement in all this. His play style will involve a lot of guns, similar to Stryker, and a heavy dose of yelling. His fatality will be some reckless torturing (of course doing it against CTU's orders and/or U.S. pathetic and retarded "moral code" where you can't torture someone who has killed, or is threatening to kill, hundreds if not thousands of innocent civilians). And if Hara-Kiris make a comeback, he's gonna go back to his old friend heroin. That being said, I'm really looking forward MKX (or whatever they decide to name it), and had it not been for the perfection we now know as Breaking Bad, 24 would arguably the best series I've seen.

And yes, I know this is most likely going to be Big Boss (aka the best character ever made from the best video game ever made). But I'm sorry, as much as I love Kiefer, there's only one Snake/Big Boss, and that's David Hayter.

I just hope it won't be exclusive to the PS4.

#17

Lol yea right WB is all about maximizing profits which means it will be multiplatform. The only exclusive PS4 has got so far is injustice which really isn't an exclusive because it was on previous consoles. Same with GG XRD it will also be released on PS3 and me personally I wish KI was also released on PS4 it's a great game.

I doubt Boon gives a sh!t because he has already confirmed MKX is in the works like 6 months ago. I wouldn't be surprise if they officially announce MKX around Evo2014.

I heard that Microsoft might be thinking of branching out some of their Xbox one games to PC. I hope it's true because I wouldn't mind for a KI PC Port.
