Ed Boon Teases Mortal Kombat X Evo News [Updated]

After a week of news making in Los Angeles for the unveiling of Injustice 2; Mortal Kombat X Creative Director Ed Boon is drawing eyes back to the home team with a hint of news upcoming!

Today's tweet promises Mortal Kombat X news with the unsubtle capitalization of three letters: EVO.

Fandom being what it is: the teaser will quickly prompt speculation over an announcement of new downloadable content for the annual July event. The fires of fantasy were stoked as recently as May, when Boon himself polled fans on NetherRealm's prospective next project. The MK-centric survey returned support for a third Kombat Pack, even though Mortal Kombat XL wrapped in March.

Expectations may be better served by anticipating news regarding the tournament major - rather than taking place at it.

An Injustice demonstration is relatively likely, presenting a reason for Boon to try to attract attention back to MKX with the tenuous practice of pre-hype hype. MKXL is already under fire from internal competition. A typically fickle fanbase is showing wavering signs of short attention spans amidst anticipation for the 2017 DC sequel.

NetherRealm Studios and Warner Brothers recently reaffirmed their dedication to the tournament scene with a $10,000 prize pot for next week [full story]. This follows a massive $500,000 put behind ESL Season 3 Finals. Competitive play of their games has been an on-going priority since re-establishing a foothold in 2011.

Update: True to form; Ed Boon has followed his initial tease just two hours later with confirmation that the studio and Warner Brothers will pitch in $50,000 to the Mortal Kombat XL 2016 Evo winnings.

So Ed still thinks that e- "sports" (LOL) competitions are "Exciting news".

F--- that to the darkest depths of hell. Who cares?

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

Didn't he do this before? Made some cryptic tweet and then it was just about the e-Sports side of things?

Feel like I'm having deja-vu.

Great news for the 1% of the game's players that play at that level.

Definitely not KP3, no way. Not sure anybody would want that, since they are all about the money and 2 guests will ruin it again. I'm sure it's something like an update, something improved within the game.

Yeah, I know. I don't get the hype and the following this kind of BS receives. SonicFox is the top player, but competitive gaming is not a career. It's not even sustainable beyond a couple of years - someone always comes along...ALWAYS...that is younger, better and has less of a life to worry about, so he can spend his time playing video games day in and day out and get better than SonicFox.

At that point, what happens to people like SonicFox is that they experience a bunch of losses and are never able to beat this newcomer, so they lose confidence and get even worse, then instead of blaming themselves, they start blaming the game for being "unbalanced" and the newcomer's choice character for being "overpowered" and the developers for making a "shitty game".

This is why i scoff at the concept of e- "sports". Competitive video game playing is not a sport. It's a measure of how long people with no lives can play video games to the point where they memorize button strings and try to out-perform each other with their memorized button strings. It's not a career. Five years form now, SonicFox will be bitching about all the games he used to play, wondering why he's not winning at competitions anymore, and after spending his entire life being unemployed, will hate his job answering phones for $9/hr.

And this is what pisses me off when Ed makes some sort of "big hype announcement" post. I don't give a flying f--- about video game contests. I don't even play competitive online if I can help it. I play games to have fun. To me, an "exciting announcement" is "we're releasing a HUGE update with new characters, arenas and features", not "we're giving this loser with nothing in his life but video games an extra $50,000 next time."

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

Let's be honest here. Competitive gamers are a niche crowd in a niche crowd. While I'm happy for the competitors out there this is a letdown for everybody else.

After Boon polled the community on what they wanted to see next you can't be too surprised that the majority of posters here were expecting this big announcement to be about KP3 [since it won that poll]

Why couldn't this ending have happened?

Aw, sorry...is that you SonicFox? And,is,your,spacebar,broken,or,something,?

What does a video game competition have to do with gameplay? So MKX is in tournament circuits now because MK has the best gameplay it has had in years. That's great.

Do I care? No.

I don't give a damn about competitive play for prizes. When a video game becomes nothing more but a chore that you have to practice day in and day out to memorize button strings so you can compete for money, it's not a game anymore. It's not fun. It loses its identity. But hey, if people want to do that, let them. I'll play the game the way I want to - for fun.

So no, I don't give a flying F about competitive gamers, their "skill" level or their prizes. I care about more content for a game that I love.

You have no fucking clue about tournaments or anything related to gameplay,loses its identity?it's not fun?,lol what a load of bullshit.

Save that link for you,you're the only butthurt fanboy here because you don't get what you want in a stupid videogame.

Sonicfox?,i have been in this forum and playing MK before that clown was even born.

Says the most butthurt dude in this thread. You seem to have some kinda crazy vendetta against skilled tournament players. Maybe take some deep breaths and step away from your key board. Sonic Fox, a 19 year old teenager happens to be very talented at his hobby, good for him. Calling him and players like him losers doesn't make you any cooler, it just makes you look sad. Sad and butthurt. You have no idea what their lives are like or where they're headed, you're just talking out of your ass ace ventura style. Its almost hard to take you serious.

And now you're just embarrassing yourself. Your posts reek of scrubbyness. MK1 gameplay does not cross over to MKX whatsoever. I can tell you have no idea how to play these games and get bodied over and over online and have to lash out at all the "no life neeeeerds" who just happen to be better than you. Let it go man. If you don't care about tournaments thats neato, good for you, move on with your life and stop trolling a thread dedicated to one.

I do hope we get more kontent for MKX, still loving the game.

Recent podcast with ED from E3 seems to imply it:

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2016/06/30/playstation-blogcast-episode-213-beards-among-us/

"We're very busy. Because Mortal Kombat X we've extended its support even further than all the other games. It's actually ...overlapping into our next game, Injustice 2 and I'm trying to tell myself it's a good thing, but it makes for a very busy schedule.."

Just heard about this, very interesting quote indeed. Definitely seems to imply there's something else coming.

RE: Ed Boon Teases Mortal Kombat X Evo News [Updated]

I have my doubts it will be a Kombat Pack 3, and I was ready to just say that the "reveal" was the prize money announcement he made right after, but if it is indeed a KP3, I really hope they give us a finale with Fujin and Rain to quell the people who requested both so much. I would really hate 2 MORE guest characters, so maybe they'll be done with that and the last 2 will be some other MK characters too.
