Mortal Kombat VIII to be an MMORPG?

The April edition of the Official Xbox Magazine has a small section which reveals a rumor about Mortal Kombat VIII. According to the small snippet, MK VIII will be different to past MK games as it'll be a MMORPG.

Keep in mind that this is the April edition, and there is bound to be several April fool jokes placed into the magazine...

The story is too old to be commented.

Just see:

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon's 'Kreate A Fighter' mode was already a great success, as you made your own fighter with unique appearance, martial arts style and special moves and then took him/her online and really showed what that fighter could do online with the rest of the world...

...Now, consider all those self-made fighters in next-gen having to form a unique, individual storyline within the MK universe, with more downloadable/buyable accessories to really 'shine' in wuxia aspects. Whole markets and departments in chinese architecture to get to, small oriental restaurants to visit, and all that further enhanced by provoding a unique lobby or lounge for PS3's HOME where your custom character has a customizable setting and outlook of the mystical outworld...just WOW !!!

Yes I agree what aer they doing?????? If MK becomes an MMO .. I will just give up on this game.. I remember when it was 2d.. Then the characters become all beefy ..story that makes no sense.. They kill Lui Kang then he comes back>?? OK make up your mind... If this games comes out as an MMO it will be a sad and pathetic day for an Iconic franchise.
