Bleszinski Wants To See A Gears of War Character In Mortal Kombat

Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski is one of the most outspoken developers on Twitter. He's fun to follow, as his humor and enthusiasm for games makes him often seem more like another fan of games than a developer. Today, he had an exchange about the possibility of putting a Gears of War character -- perhaps Clay Carmine -- in the legendary Mortal Kombat fighting franchise.

Today, Bleszinski retweeted an exchange with one of his followers, who had commented "Clay Carmine for exclusive 360 character in the new MK would be an AWESOME contrast to Kratos." Bleszinski responded by saying, "I agree! Midway, where u at?" before catching himself with the followup comment, "Oh yeah, Midway dead."

After another follower suggested he take the matter up with Ed Boon's Mortal Kombat team or Warner Bros. Games, the current corporate home of the MK franchise, Bleszinski responded again, "Yeah. Must figure out a Gears char in MK!"

While this is by no means an announcement of any sort, it's pretty cool to think about the burly macho men of Gears of War invading the gonzo world of Mortal Kombat. Here's to hoping.
