A leak would have revealed the existence of Mortal Kombat 12

An alleged leak from one of the producers of NetherRealm Studios would have revealed the existence of Mortal Kombat 12

Today, an alleged leak related to Mortal Kombat 12, the future fighting game that should continue the violent saga created by NetherRealm. The indiscretion came directly from Jonathan Andersen, one of the producers of the saga, who posted an image on Twitter where you can see a photo of his desk that shows us some artwork of Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II and Injustice 2. What caught the attention of fans, however, was a small writing in the corner of a monitor that shows a file called MK12_mast. Andersen removed the image after about 10 minutes after uploading it online, but the question remains whether it was a deliberate mistake or not. A few months ago, series co-creator Ed Boon denied rumors about an upcoming 12th chapter announcement.

Mortal Kombat 12: a leak reveals its possible existence

In the marketing strategies of the videogame world it happens more and more often that clues are left about the announcement of future games, passing them off as possible accidents, so as to attract the attention of the public. This alleged leak would therefore reveal the existence of Mortal Kombat 12, which could therefore be announced within the next few months. In the monitor where the name of the file called MK12_Mast was present, there are also phrases in an email that refer to a video that must not be shared since “fans are searching the whole internet for a trace”. This sentence left in plain sight suggests that the alleged accident is actually wanted by NetherRealm itself.

A leak would have revealed the existence of Mortal Kombat 12

The journalist Jeff Grubb had reported that NetherRealm was working on Mortal Kombat 12 as early as August last year, although everyone expected the release of a possible Injustice 3. Apparently there are problems with WB Games which, again according to what Grubb reported, given that the parent company AT&T it seems eager to sell its gaming sections. However, it seems that there have been no buyers and in the meantime it has been decided that WB Games and WarnerMedia will merge with Discovery to create a new company that will be totally independent. While waiting for these legal problems to be resolved, it therefore seems that NetherRealm has decided to give space first to Mortal Kombat 12, especially after the success of the previous chapter.

So we just have to wait for an official announcement to understand if the leak shown is real.
