MK Wins Best Fighting Game of 2011, NRS Works on non-MK Gameby Gambid on Dec 11, 2011 :: 5
Mortal Kombat 9 (2011) has won this years' Spike Video Game Awards in the best fighting game category.
Congratulations to the development team over at Netherrealm Studios for this achievement.
GameSpot also reported that Ed Boon has confirmed that the studio is currently working on a non Mortal Kombat project:
That moment didn't pass by without a sliver of news from developer Netherrealm Studios, as studio head Ed Boon confirmed that his studio is taking a hiatus from the Mortal Kombat franchise.
Don't expect to see a new Mortal Kombat any time soon.
According to Boon, while it's an inevitability that the studio will eventually return to the franchise that was first born in 1992, right now the team is at work on a different project. Boon did not offer any other details on what that project may be, though he did note that Netherrealm has no plans to release additional downloadable content for the most recent Mortal Kombat.
