Midway: More Mortal Kombat on the Way

Hidden away within a press release regarding shipment figures for Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was the first official word that Midway is planning another series entry.

"We're already hard at work on our next version of Mortal Kombat, and look forward to being able to reveal more details in the future," said franchise co-creator Ed Boon.

While the publisher did not disclose how many copies of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe have actually been sold, it did note that "approximately 1.8 million units" of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 fighter have been shipped since its November 16 release.

Midway is currently $240 million in debt and facing possible bankruptcy in February.

    I expect if/when Midway goes under, somebody will snatch up the MK dev team/IP. Love or hate the games, its too big a name to let fall by the wayside.
