David Zucker, Midway Games CEO, has surprisingly revealed that a seventh Mortal Kombat beat-'em-up game is planned for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 2 and a third wireless platform. According to a statement made by Zucker at the RBC Capital Markets North American Technology Conference in California, the next chapter in the series is already undergoing development.
"We're making Mortal Kombat 7," he told the audience - and a webcast, which picked up on his comments. "We'll have a PS3 SKU and an Xbox 2 SKU and we'll have a wireless SKU." Obviously he made no mention of a possible release date.
Meanwhile, members of the Mortal Kombat: Deception development team have also commented - albeit briefly - on future instalments, although producer John Podlasek and programmer Nick Shin appeared to distance themselves from any current development.
"I can say that it's probably a safe bet that there will be another MK title in the works sooner than later," said Podlasek "What, when, where, etc are obviously still up in the air at the moment." Currently Mortal Kombat: Deception is the sixth game in the series and is due out on PS2 and Xbox this October.
