Whereas Mortal Kombat and Injustice developer NetherRealm Studios has been secretive about what its subsequent sport is, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav spoiled the shock throughout the firm’s newest earnings name: it’s Mortal Kombat 12, and it’s popping out this yr.
Talking about WB Video games’ upcoming lineup, Zaslav stated that the “extremely anticipated Mortal Kombat 12” is within the works alongside Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which was featured in a State of Play showcase that came about across the identical time. Zaslav says Mortal Kombat 12 is “set for launch this yr” and that Warner Bros. Discovery has “formidable launch projections” for this title.
Digital Developments contacted WB Video games to substantiate the assertion and can replace this text after we hear again.
Clearly, as that is the primary time the sport has been talked about, we don’t know any particular particulars in regards to the story, gameplay, or characters that will likely be featured within the new entry. Nonetheless, it’s fairly an thrilling affirmation for combating sport followers as NetherRealm Studios hasn’t launched a brand new sport since 2019’s Mortal Kombat 11, which itself has not received any new DLC since 2021. The Chicago-based developer had been flip-flopping between making Mortal Kombat and Injustice video games all through the 2010s, however its focus seems to be wholly on Mortal Kombat now.
If Mortal Kombat 12 is actually popping out this yr, we shouldn’t have to attend an excessive amount of longer for an official reveal. Nonetheless, that is an surprising approach for such a sport to be revealed. Mortal Kombat 12 is in improvement and meant for launch someday in 2023.
