Ed Boon, the lead developer of Midway's Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe has confirmed that the DLC that had been previously touted for the game will not now be released.
The news is not surprising considering Midway's ongoing struggles and the recently completed buyout at the hands of Warner Interactive.
However, confirmation earlier this year that the Mortal Kombat team is already working on the next title in the series had given some hope that the expected additional characters content could yet make it to market.
And perhaps there's still a chance that it will. Mortal Kombat is probably the most valuable Midway property – evidenced by the fact that the troubled publisher tried to sell the licence independently, and the game's developers also tried to distance themselves from the sinking Midway ship.
If the content is already complete then new owner Warner, a self-professed fan of the current digital revolution, could yet decide to try and maintain the series' momentum with an impromptu DLC release.
