After a bloody 11th opus released in 2019, the indestructible “Mortal Kombat” franchise is coming back soon in a 12th installment, still developed under the auspices of its studio NetherRealm Studios.
It’s an announcement almost made on tiptoe. Maybe because Warner Bros. Games, the publisher, is still busy counting its mountains of greenbacks that it has not stopped amassing since the colossal launch of another game in its catalog of licenses, Hogwarts Legacy – the legacy of Hogwarts .
If some fans were waiting for an announcement around a third installment in the games saga Injusticesix years after the release of Injustice 2, it is rather on the side of the indestructible Mortal Kombat franchise that we must look.
He’s the very CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, David Zaslav, who indeed released the information during an interview with his shareholders: “There’s still plenty to come, including the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat 12 and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Games also slated for release this year with ambitious launch projections.”as reported by.
What’s more, the title would even be scheduled for 2023. A date which obviously still remains very vague, especially since a postponement of the title is not impossible. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League to be released next May, it is hard to imagine Warner Bros. Games immediately draw out a license as strong as Mortal Kombat to the point of shooting itself in the foot. We should therefore rather count on an MK 12 release at the end of the year, at best.
With more than 12 million copies sold, and 73 million games sold for the entire series, Mortal Kombat is the most lucrative franchise on the Versus fighting game scene, ahead of Smash Bros, Tekken or Street Fighter. This is to say if Warner Bros. Games is not ready to let go of its martingale. Released in 2019, Mortal Kombat 11 was a huge, well-deserved success. We tell you here all the good things we think about it.
