What the hell is Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon hinting at?

Monday, 19th May 2014 16:25 GMT By Sherif Saed

Ed Boon, creator of Mortal Kombat, is at it again with the Mortal Kombat teasing, though this time he’s using car logos.

“Hmmm… I wonder what the X stands for?,” he said.

Then later replying to a fan following the same tweet.

“U R Good!!,” he said.

The X symbol is the Latin numeral for ten, so the next game could be the sequel to Mortal Kombat 9, Mortal Kombat 10. That or the X means Mortal Kombat X maybe Injustice? Though the latter is less likely.

What do you think?

Those tweets follow last week’s countdown, which will expire just before E3.

    Try not to read anything in to what he says. He enjoys teasing his followers.
    For example:

    Mortal Kombat 10. It’s his last game before he retires, btw (or at least that was the case in 2012).

    His teases have all contained MK and Injustice so far. He has also been more negative towards X as 10 and more positive towards X as Versus/Crossover.

    Right now, I’m really than worried that it’s MK x Injustice. Hopefully I’m wrong and if this is a crossover, it’s with something new.
    Yes, MK x SF will probably never happen but please, don’t do another MK x DC.

    @The_Red Don’t worry, it’s definitely MK 10.

    @Gheritt White
    I want to keep my fingers crossed (krossed?) but he later tweeted about MK10 at E3 with a “don’t hold your breath” :(
