Kevin Tancharoen, the director of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, has officially stepped away from all things mortal and combative, he revealed via Twitter. Tancharoen headed up the Legacy webseries after launching Mortal Kombat Rebirth, a short, gritty film starring classic Mortal Kombat characters, in 2010. In 2011, New Line Cinema tapped Tancharoen to direct a feature film in the Mortal Kombat universe, though the franchise's IP rights were in limbo at the time.

"After 3 years of Kombat, I've decided to move on to other creative opportunities," he writes. "I wish everyone involved in the movie big success. Thanks!"

The entire second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy went live courtesy of Machinima on September 27. It's 10 episodes long, so if news of Tancharoen's departure has you hankering for a fight, get started here.
