According to an trade insider, Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm Studios is specializing in Mortal Kombat 12 as its subsequent sport – rather than DC Comics preventing sport sequel Injustice 3, as most followers predict, because of the continued issues at Warner Bros.

NetherRealm confirmed again in July that it had finally ceased working on Mortal Kombat 11 and there can be no extra content material updates for the sport, because the studio was transferring on to its subsequent venture. This was assumed to be Injustice 3, given how NetherRealm has alternated between the Mortal Kombat and Injustice collection since 2011.

However, in accordance with trade insider Jeff Grubb (thanks, VGC) on the Giant Bomb channel, NetherRealm is as a substitute going straight to Mortal Kombat 12 as its subsequent sport rather than Injustice 2 and even the rumoured Marvel sport. “Mortal Kombat 12 would make the most sense because that’s a game they know will make money, it’ll sell well,” Grubb says. “That’s what I’ve heard is happening… it lines up with the reality and it lines up with what I’ve heard.”

Grubb states this is because of the ongoing problems with Warner Bros, which is being merged with Discovery. “WB is sort of falling apart in front of our eyes, where who knows where NetherRealm’s going to be next year,” Grubb states. Therefore, it doesn’t “make sense” for the studio to make a sport utilizing a Warner Bros licence like DC Comics when the builders don’t know if it is going to be a part of Warner Bros for for much longer.

While Grubb has known as issues efficiently up to now – most lately with the Dead Space reboot from EA Motive – It must be identified that Warner Bros has refuted this on several levels – the writer has acknowledged that it’s not eliminating DC Comics or NetherRealm, and if something is doubling down on each. NetherRealm was actually thanked in the end credits of this month’s DC film The Suicide Squad, so there’s nonetheless a powerful connection between the 2. The huge DC ‘Fandome’ event is October, so if Injustice 3 is getting introduced quickly it might occur there.
