NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon has said that, due to keep both franchises on a separate path, a sequel to Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe is not planned.
Although he stressed to "never say never", Boon explained that the DC Comics and Mortal Kombat games work best when they're released individually to their own audiences instead of launching as a crossover.
"Never say never, of course, but we loved how our last Mortal Kombat game was strictly Mortal Kombat. And when you think about it, the last Mortal Kombat game we did, it really had the essence of the series more so than any other game in years.
"With Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, there's two pretty different audiences; one which wants to see violence and blood, and there's another that wants to see grand superhero moments. We were kind of balancing on a fence trying to accommodate both audiences with Mortal Kombat vs. DC."
NetherRealm is currently developing its next fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us, which is currently scheduled for a launch during the first half of 2013. Boon said the game "is something that just embraces what's best about superheroes".
Boon added that when NetherRealm recently played Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, they were "surprised at how tame it was compared to Injustice."
