Mortal Kombat 9 is the working title of an upcoming fighting game in the Mortal Kombat series. It is in development by WB Games Chicago, formerly known as Midway Games Chicago.[1][2]

The game was first hinted at by developer Ed Boon on January 2009, shortly after the release of the previous game in the franchise, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.[3] In a November 2008 interview, Ed Boon stated that he believed Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe's performance would reflect upon what features what would be put in "the next game", presumably Mortal Kombat 9.[4]

On June 18, 2009, Boon confirmed in his Twitter page that they were performing motion capture for the game. He also revealed that the game will not have superheroes in it[5], thus ruling out an immediate follow-up to Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

He also stated that they were going back to its bloody origins[6] and they were aiming for a "Mature" rating, contrary to the "Teen" rating attained by the previous game. He even questioned "going too far" and showed concern about crossing the limit to "Adults Only" rating.[7][8]

It has been said online will be the focus for Mortal Kombat 9, which GamePro editors called a "smart move"[6], and in January 2010 a screenshot of Ed Boon's personal PSN ID was published, which suggested that online testing of Mortal Kombat 9 was underway.[9]

Dan Forden is expected to return as the music composer for the game.[10]

As of December 4th, 2009, Mortal Kombat 9 is expected to be released around Christmas 2010.[11]
