2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the brutal, bloody and violent fighting game franchise Mortal Kombat. NetherRealm has confirmed that it was shipped from Mortal Kombat 11 after two years of DLC – to focus on its “next project”, so what’s next?
While there have been numerous rumors over the past year that the studio may be working on a superhero fighting, NetherRealm senior production director Jonathan Andersen has now posted an image via the platform. social network Twitter, it seems to tease MK12.
In the upper right of this photo – filled with artwork and posters of past entries, there is a file on the computer screen labeled “MK_12 Mast…” and in an email on the screen, you can generate the following lines:
“fans eagerly scour the Internet for any traces … be extra careful with this material.”
It looks like this may have been a deliberate internal ‘leak’ to generate some excitement. The photo was only uploaded for about 10 minutes before being removed, the whole thing happened anyway.
Considering NetherRealm ended development on the MK11 last year, it only makes sense now that it’s working on the next entry. VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb also claims NR is prioritizing the MK12 over a superhero fighter possibly due to the uncertainty attached to its future under the parent company (Warner Bros).
