Todd McFarlane has revealed he gave permission for Spawn to appear in such NetherRealm Studios games as Injustice: Gods Among Us and Mortal Kombat X, due out in April from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
However, he tells GamerFitNation there’s a catch: It’s a “short deal” that comes with a ticking clock.
“That means that they have access to be able to use the character in a couple of their games, if they want to,” McFarlane said. “Again, it’s up to their discretion. I gave them a window of time, so I’ll just leave it to them to do what it is that they want. Eventually, they’ll phone me and they’ll go, ‘Hey, we want to use him here. Is that OK?’ Well, technically, it’s OK because we’ve already said yes. They just are letting us know.”
However, the artist underscores that just because he’s given his OK doesn’t necessarily mean Spawn will appear in Mortal Kombat X.
“Well, I don’t know if they’re ever going to use him,” he added. “They just might squat. They might squat on him.”
Spawn has starred in at least five of his own video games, and was an Xbox-exclusive fighter in 2003’s Soulcalibur II.
