Is There a New Mortal Kombat on the Way?

Or am I desperately grasping at straws for a chance to play a new “Mortal Kombat” game? Maybe it’s both! Either way, something is afoot and “Mortal Kombat” creator Ed Boon is playing coy.

IGN first noticed that Ed Boon was up to some suspicious activity on his Twitter account when he asked his followers for the square root of 841.  The next day he asked them how many days were in february when it wasn’t a leap year?  At first, you might be thinking that Ed Boon is getting out of the game business and becoming a gameshow host.  However, the answers to the questions reveal a more sinister truth.  The answer to the first question is 29 while the second answer is 28.  Today he posted a video related to the number 27.  It would seem as if he was counting down towards the date of June 2.  A week before the start of E3.

So what sort of announcement could be in our future? One would hope that it would be a sequel to their most recent “Mortal Kombat” game.  However, we can’t forget that a new sequel to “Injustice” was also rumored to be in the works.  There’s also the fact that Kiefer Sutherland recently admitted to doing voicework for a MK related project.   Given that MK has been out of the spotlight for several years now, I’m leaning towards the idea that we might be hearing about the franchise fairly soon.

What do you think? Are we due for a new “Mortal Kombat” game? Are you ready for one? Let us know.
