Ed Boon Twitter Countdown Leading to June Reveal?

Anticipation for the next game from NetherRealm Studios has already been high, but it's about to reach fever pitch as we scramble for clues in the race to this year's E3!

Always on hand to add fuel to the fire: Creative Director Ed Boon has begun what appears to be a thinly veiled countdown that hits zero on June 2nd! This puts the mystery a week ahead of the June 10-12 Electronic Entertainment Expo.

Update(s): 27, 26, 25, 24/24, 23/23, [22], 21, 20, 19. [3122], 11, 9, 8?, 7, 6/6, 5, 4/4?/4, 3. [Follow along on the forums.]

An announcement would certainly fit current Warner Brothers/NetherRealm modus operandi. Mortal Kombat [original story] and Injustice: Gods Among Us [original story] both received launch trailers 5 days before E3. The question remains: What game will we see when the countdown ends?

Kiefer Sutherland and Karen Strassman have both claimed Mortal Kombat working credits: the latter referring to "Mortal Kombat 2" in her résumé.

Ed Boon again prompted rumors when he discussed a Mortal Kombat II: Director's Cut HD remake at GDC. [Related Article: Cancelled Mortal Kombat HD Behind-the-Scenes Photos] Then there are those lingering claims an Injustice sequel was announced during a DC All Access panel at Wondercon [full story].

What ever's coming - it seems the answers will be here in June! Register to follow the countdown and share your theories on the forums!

Countdown to June 2

Ed Boon appears to be counting down to June 2 on his Twitter account.

Yesterday, he randomly and mysteriously tweeted, "Square root of 841."
https://twitter.com/noobde/status/463068831292739584

Today, he tweeted "Question: How many days in (non-leap-year) February?"
https://twitter.com/noobde/status/463360095435247616

With answers being 29 and 28, Ed appears to be counting down to June 2, 2014.

We've all been speculating that NetherRealm is in the lab creating Mortal Kombat 10, and we are in the thick of "announcement season" with E3 around the corner, so this countdown assumption is far from a stretch.

Besides being a week before E3, June 2 is around the same timeframe that Mortal Kombat 9 and Injustice: Gods Among Us were announced.

Let the countdown begin!

Yup, looks like something big is gonna happen on June 2nd.

June 2nd will be on a Monday, exactly a week before E3. Much like MK9's trailer was revealed a week before E3 in 2010.

This is it guys, MK10 is upon us.

They have the potential to make him a serious badass. I just hope and pray the ridiculous move set and fatalities are gone.

Fingers crossed!

I hope for a bit of story in the trailer, just so I can be excited for the story too.

But still, I'm considering this news an early birthday present, June 2nd can't come any faster!

Christmas...the only time of year that the Bonne's would be giving, instead of getting.

I agree with the ridiculous move set and fatalities. I actually like when MK at least pretends to take itself seriously.

Same here. Also if they show Kai I'll squeal with glee.

Of all the newer ones that came during MK4, I am curious to see Kai. The guy had SERIOUS potential as an ally to Liu Kang, but was just meh...

RE: Countdown to June 2

I'm just hoping it's MK at all... after that "Injustice 2" blurb, I've been very lately.

But those two voice acting leaks (especially the Keifer one), give me more hope. Hard to believe it's been three years since the last MK, and four years since said MK's announcement trailer. Definitely the second longest gap between MKs after MK4 and Deadly Alliance.

But at least this means it's not rushed.

I feel like the Injustice 2 blurb just meant that the game is in NetherRealm's 5 year roadmap. All that was said was "prepare for the return of Injustice" or something to that effect. The guy who said that was just excited that it's officially in the pipeline for sometime after 2015.

Good point. I certainly don't mind another Injustice, but another MK first

I certainly hope all this hype wasn't for nothing. That would be tragic.

RE: Countdown to June 2

Boon has trolled all of us for years. He's had count downs before, and nothing happened.

I'm sure he's trolling again, and everyone is getting their hopes sky high.

Come June 2, the only thing we're all going to get is a Boon tweet with him out eating at a bar and a picture of his E3 badge on the table.
