Ed Boon: MK9 DLC is "all done"

Those hoping NetherRealm would update Mortal Kombat 9 with more downloadable content are surely disappointed to hear that won't be happening. Seems all resources are now going into Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Mortal Kombat 9 (MK9) was released in spring 2011. The game was packed with content including a story, Arcade Ladder, tons of online features, and more. Despite the beefy roster, NetherRealm added Skarlet, Kenshi, Rain, and Freddy Krueger as DLC.

With four characters and free skins as DLC for MK9, the game certainly wasn't short of downloadable content. While fans were satisfied with the characters picked to add depth to the MK9 roster, there were still past characters that they would've liked to have. Until this point, fans had hoped more DLC would eventually make its way to the bloody fighter.

As En Vogue once said, "You're Never Gonna Get It."

Co-creator of the Mortal Kombat series Ed Boon took to Twitter to answer some fan questions. When asked if there would be more DLC for MK9, Boon kept it simple.

"All done. Sorry."

The news may come with disappointment to MK9 diehards, but it shouldn't come as a surprise. Injustice: Gods Among Us is NetherRealm's upcoming fighter. The game is scheduled for a spring 2013 release. By the time that's released, MK9 will be more or less two years old.

NetherRealm is moving on.
