WB Games confirmed earlier this year that the next instalment in the fighting franchise would launch sometime in 2023.
WB Games confirmed earlier this year that Mortal Kombat 12 would indeed be NetherRealm Studios’ next project, true to leaks, and that it will be out sometime this year. Details on the game are scant though, if that, and it still hasn’t yet been officially unveiled. It seems, however, that the publisher may be gearing up to do just that in the not-too-distant future.
Celebrating the franchise’s 30th anniversary, developer NetheRealm Studios recently shared a video containing messages of appreciation for the fans from a number of developers. The final message in the video, from NetherRealm and Mortal Kombat boss Ed Boon, ends with him thanking fans for 30 years of support, and saying, “We’re not quite done yet.” Boon’s message is followed by a short cinematic tease that seems to be pointing at Mortal Kombat 12. Check it out below.
Boon himself followed up on the tease on Twitter, prompting fans to check out the “not so subtle tease” of what’s next for the series.
Recently, it was claimed that Mortal Kombat 12 might be announced sometime in May. Leaks have stated that a PlayStation Showcase event is being planned for the month, so that could be a suitable stage to announce the highly anticipated fighter.
