It seems that Mortal Kombat 11 is may be on the way, if that's what series creator Ed Boon is teasing on Twitter. Formed in 2010, NetherRealm Studios has been the home for Ed Boon and his legendary Mortal Kombat series of fighting games. While the series came to prominence in the '90s due to its shocking violence, tight gameplay has kept it relevant for over 20 years. The studio has begun to branch out in recent years having also worked on Injustice: Gods Among Us and WWE Immortals.
Still, the Mortal Kombat series as at the studio's very core, and Boon seems to want people to remember that. Boon, who is notorious for joking around with his fans on social media, is a source of near constant teasing for new fighters and new games from his company, NetherRealm Studios. More often than not his teasing isn't just empty trolling. There's usually smoke where there's fire, and Boon isn't one to get fan expectation up and not deliver anything.
It all began when a Twitter user said that it would be cool if Injustice 2 (the other series that Boon works on) would get a fourth DLC pack of fighting characters. Boon didn't exactly shut down the possibility of it happening, but instead chose to deflect the question by asking "You know what ELSE would be kool....?" Considering his most famous series has a penchant for using the letter K in grammatically incorrect ways, it surely seems like a Mortal Kombat tease! Take a look:
A Mortal Kombat 11 reveal at E3 2018 would make a lot of sense. NetherRealm Studios has consistently been going between MK entries and their DC Universe fighting series Injustice since 2013. Considering Injustice 2 released over a year ago, the hard working team should have something to show off in time for one of the major press conferences.
Past Mortal Kombat titles have featured guest characters, some of which were famous horror movie villains. Some titles have even featured characters from other games. For instance, 2011's Mortal Kombat featured God of War's Kratos as a PlayStation exclusive character, so Warner Bros. cutting a deal with Sony for exclusive content isn't out of the question. This could potentially mean a Mortal Kombat 11 debut during Sony's yearly E3 showcase as well.
Either way, fans shouldn't have to wait much longer to know what Ed Boon and his team are working on. NetherRealm has consistently put out solid fighting games for years now and at an incredible pace. Plus, Boon loves to tease fans on Twitter so much that it's nearly impossible for him to keep a secret on any forthcoming project.
