If you’re among the many looking forward to a new Mortal Kombat game, confirmation that one is in development has surfaced thanks to a very unlikely source. Kiefer Sutherland, known for his work in films like The Lost Boys and Flatliners, the hugely popular television series 24, and Metal Gear Solid V’s upcoming Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain, dropped the information in a recent interview.

According to IGN, Sutherland mentioned his work on Mortal Kombat while being asked about playing Metal Gear Solid’s iconic Big Boss. While he didn’t specify the role, he did say that his work on the title has already wrapped up.

Unfortunately, this juicy news still leaves us with a variety of unanswered questions. Could this be the much-anticipated Mortal Kombat 10, or is NetherRealm Studios preparing another spin-off à la Shaolin Monks? The studio is, unsurprisingly, remaining silent regarding this new turn of events.

So, what do you think? Feel free to provide your thoughts on this news and which character you think Sutherland may have lent his vocal talents to in the comments.
