The producer behind the forthcoming Mortal Kombat Legacy has seemingly confirmed that a new Mortal Kombat video game is in development.

While the title has yet to be officially announced, Lance Sloane indicated the beat-‘em-up would be released to coincide with Legacy. No platforms have been mentioned as of yet.

"We've been in greenlight committee for a while at the studio and we've got a great script. And we've got a great director with Kevin Tancharoen, who is on board," Sloane told GamerHub.TV.

"It's just figuring out the business side of it and when we would do it and when we would launch it and how do we sync up with the launch of the game that they're working on now. It's not 100% yet, but we're getting closer every day."

Mortal Kombat: Legacy is a feature film based on the cult television series of the same name. Production on the flick is set to kick off this summer.

The last Mortal Kombat title was released in 2011 and developed by NetherRealm Studios, and became a critical and commercial success. The company broke away from the series with this year’s Injustice: Gods Among Us, but has not ruled out returning to Mortal Kombat again in the future.

Stay tuned to for more details.
