Future Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe Sequel Unlikely

NetherRealm Studios are back in the world of DC Comics, hard at work developing superhero sequel: Injustice 2. If you're thinking the 2017 fighting game may be the first step towards another crossover with Mortal Kombat -- think again!

Ed Boon shot down the chances of a future sequel to Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe, describing it via Twitter as "Not likely". The remark was a reply to a fan, who included an image featuring series icons Batman and Scorpion.

Boon notably shot down plans for a sequel back in 2012 [full story], telling an interviewer: "... we loved how our last Mortal Kombat game was strictly Mortal Kombat." He further elaborated, "With Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, there's two pretty different audiences; one which wants to see violence and blood, and there's another that wants to see grand superhero moments."

Although the MK/DC crossover has pretty much been persona non grata since the collapse of Midway Entertainment, it holds an important place in the Mortal Kombat gaming canon.

Released this time in 2008; [MKvsDC] was the first time MK game development had the heavy involvement of present owners: Warner Brothers. It also pioneered the basic format of Mortal Kombat X and Injustice: Gods Among Us, restoring the fight to a restricted 2D plane after years of 3D motion. It was also the first time NetherRealm introduced a chapter based Story Mode featuring prominent voice acting talent and cinematic interstitials.

Despite it's role in evolving Kombat; the 2008 crossover struggled to impress with its limited character line-up, and minimal content. Plans for the game's first foray into DLC were aborted as the game struggled under the conditions of Midway's impending collapse. It was also ultimately doomed to be unfavorably compared to pioneering rival series Marvel vs Capcom -- rumored to be heading to a fourth instalment in 2017.

Of course, while there may be no plan for another dedicated video game sequel -- the Mortal Kombat and DC Universe properties have and will continue to crossover.

Scorpion featured prominently in Injustice: Gods Among Us post-release support, appearing as the highest selling downloadable character. A follow-up was alluded to by Boon, who has since asked followers to pick their favourite Kombat Guest from four options. MK Online recently ranked our Top 10 Kombat Guests.

RE: Future Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe Sequel Unlikely

Before we got the MK reboot and Injustice I really wanted them to do a Blackest Night MK vs DCU game. With how many died in the MK series there was no shortage of characters that could have become Black Lanterns.

:( There is a big part of me that would love to see a MK vs DCU 2, carrying on from the last game.

Shao Kahn leading Zod, Ursa and Non towards Earth to lay the smackdown on the Justice League and Darksied turning Outworld into Apokolips, With a new set of Furies (Sheeva, Sindel, Skarlet, Tanya, Mileena and Jade) to fight for him. The Alliance of Quan Chi and Lex Luthor. Green Lantern Sonya Blade (Hell, Red Lantern Scorpion and Yellow Lantern Noob Saibot as well?). The envitable Mileena and Harley chapter.

But im the only one who wants this.

So glad Boon has the brains to not do another MK vs. DC.

If anything WB and DC should just make a running comic series of MK vs DCU and test some waters. I'd be down for a sequel to be honest.

Shao Kahn did nothing wrong

I'd like a sequel, but it's not urgent, imo. I'd rather they work on a horror-themed fighting game, if they're at all serious about making one.

Considering MKvsDCU just made both franchises worse I'd say this is a good thing. There's just no way to work MK's level of violence into the DCU that'd make WB comfortable.

To be honest, wouldn't mind a comic series. Play around with somethings. Wonder Woman goes to the wrong hell and instead of Hades down there its Shinnok.

I gotta stop, I'm selling myself on something that will never happen.

I would not mind seeing another sequel I thought the first game's storyline was far better then nk8 and mk9 storyline together

I never agreed with all the salt this game received. The combat was clunky and the finishers were on the lamer side. But it had playable Shao Kahn and playable Darkseid. That alone makes me come back and pick it up every once in a while.
