Yesterday, we learnt that Mortal Kombat X might be putting out a Predator DLC in the summer, but it likely won't be the only one.
In fact, we may have our next inkling into who to expect to join the ultra-violent game's roster. Todd McFarlane has been speaking to GamerFitNation and has said that NetherRealms have the ability to utilize Spawn in the game as they have a short deal on the character. He extrapolated:
That means that they have access to be able to use the character in a couple of their games, if they want to. Again, it's up to their discretion. I gave them a window of time, so I'll just leave it to them to do what it is that they want. Eventually, they'll phone me and they'll go, 'Hey, we want to use him here. Is that OK?' Well, technically, it's OK because we've already said yes. They just are letting us know.
This doesn't necessarily mean he will turn up in the game though, as it is more or less just an option for the developer. McFarlane added:
Well, I don't know if they're ever going to use him. They just might squat. They might squat on him.
Spawn, Predator and Mortal Kombat all belong in that 1985-1995 decade of super, 'badassery' and ultra violence that were huge in video games, movies and comics at the time. I mean, I could be writing this story in 1994 and nothing would seem out of place.
Nostalgia is a powerful thing!
