No DLC For Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

Probably not a surprise, but still an official confirmation.

You may remember that Midway had plans for downloadable content for Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. At least two characters were planned for release at some point after the game's release. Back in January, a press release on the sales of MKvDC mentioned that Ed Boon and his team were already hard at work on Mortal Kombat 9, which made the MKvDC DLC plans sound dicey, at best, but I checked in with Midway and heard that the plans were still in motion to release new characters for MKvDC.

Today, we finally got an official confirmation that the DLC plans are no more. Boon posted an image of Quan Chi up on Twitter and stated that while he's excited about MK9 and the Warner Bros. deal, he wishes that the MKvDC DLC could have been released. Given how much has happened to Midway since MKvDC's release, it's not too surprising to hear that the plans are off, but since we still hadn't heard anything official, it felt like it was worth passing on. So if you're out there holding a candle for Quan Chi vs. Superman, now you know.
