NetherRealm Studios, the developer behind this year’s excellent Mortal Kombat reboot, has announced it’s taking a break from the bloody beat-‘em-up franchise.
Speaking to GameSpot, Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon said that the studio will instead work on “a different project," though did admit NetherRealm will eventually return to Mortal Kombat at some point down the line.
Elsewhere, Boon also revealed the studio isn’t planning any further downloadable content for Mortal Kombat.

Even If I loved their last game and Im a fan of the franchise, considering the ending of the Konquest mode I think that is a good idea.
Sounds weird that they stop the franchise after they finally got it right, not just right but superb (Even if I liked all the games.) ***SPOILER*** but releasing a new game with most of the roster death could pissoff the fanbase that (believe or not) love the story and the "plot" of MK ***SPOILER***
I don't know if Sal Divita still works with Boon, and I always like new IPs but I think this is a good time to try to continue the history of Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy, I looooved that game back in the PS2, the ending was open and they never made the second game.
