It's still possible. Usually after 6-8 months, a PC port does surface as Midway mostly contracts Point Of View, Probe or Avalanche to handle the PC ports.
the last thing i heard they were not even interested...who knows time will tell i hope they realease it.. But also i hope they dont make a crappy port like MK4, which sucks so much . MK2 port for pc was the best so far. They have no execuse now PC have all the power they need..

It'd be cool if it has online support...

but online fighting games could be a big pile of eeeehhhh considering the emphasis on button-mashing and reflexes.

No, the biggest hurdle is the ping issue. Ed Boon and the crew would really like to implement online play but it's just not feasible until low-latency, low-ping, internet service has a huge saturation rate.

Oh, and for those of you that want to check out some movies of MK Deadly Alliance in action, check this out. Lotsa goodies here!
