Next Mortal Kombat to focus online

A job listing has revealed that Warner Bros. is planning to dominate online play with its first Mortal Kombat game.

As spotted by fansite TRMK, the listing states the new recruit must help the firm ‘push the boundaries’ of online interaction, and make Mortal Kombat the ‘gold standard for network play’.

The listing reads: ‘WB Games Inc. seeks a Senior Software Engineer, Network to help us implement cutting-edge online features to ensure the Mortal Kombat franchise is an industry leader in online functionality.

‘You will work closely with architects and designers on both the Mortal Kombat team and the advanced technology group to help design and implement functionality ranging from the core network transport layer all the way to owning the final implementation of brand-new features that will revolutionize online play.’

Mortal Kombat was among the Midway assets purchased by Warner Bros. back in June.
