In a recent interview with IGN, 24 and Lost Boys actor Kiefer Sutherland revealed that not only is a new Mortal Kombat game in the works, but he’s lent his raspy vocal talents to the game.
When discussing his role as Big Boss in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Sutherland made an off-the-cuff remark with huge repercussions. “I did Mortal Kombat, and that’s such a huge game, but it’s no not like [MGS5].”
He didn’t specify what the extent of his involvement was with the new MK, but he noted that his work was done “pretty quickly compared to [MGS5].” Unless this is another series reboot, it’s unlikely that Sutherland will be voicing one of the already-established characters, and will be instead lending his throat to a new fighter. Maybe…Jax Bauer?
I’ll see myself out.
