Mortal Kombat 9 multiplayer will survive the GameSpy server shutdown on May 31, according to Netherealm Studios’ Ed Boon.

It follows confirmation that Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will also survive the GameSpy server cull, thanks to an intervention by GameRanger, after it transpired that Disney had no intention on keeping the shooter’s online play alive.

While it’s not clear which provider will pick up Mortal Kombat’s server duties, Boon confirmed the game would endure past May 31 on Twitter:

We’ll have more as the finer details emerge.
