The official Mortal Kombat Facebook page has just posted a status confirming that online servers are being migrated to new servers, with this being due to the shut down of the Gamespy servers. This means that until the process is complete there will be some interruptions to the online multiplayer. The offline content will not be affected.
We are currently in the process of migrating Mortal Kombat 9 (for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC) from Gamespy’s servers and expect things to go smoothly. During the transition, players may experience an interruption of online play and matchmaking and we ask for your patience during this time. Players will not experience interruptions to offline play throughout this process.
However while the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC versions will retain online multiplayer the Vita version of Mortal Kombat will only support Ad-Hoc multiplayer from May 31st. I’m not sure how popular Mortal Kombat Vita online is, but that’s sure to be a blow to those who still play it. There are rumours that a new Mortal Kombat is in the works and that Kiefer Sutherland, who recently starred in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, will be lending his voice to the next entry to the series.
