Mortal Kombat 12 Might Have Leaked by Developer - News

NetherRealm Studios announced in July 2021 it has ended support for Mortal Kombat 11 after over two years. The studio is now focused on its next project. 

Jonathan Andersen, a senior production manager at NetherRealm Studios, might have accidentally leaked Mortal Kombat 12.

He posted a tweet featuring artwork and prints on his desk. However, there were also two monitors from his PC visible. There is a file on one of the monitors called "MK12_Mast" leading some to speculate MK12 stands for Mortal Kombat 12.

The tweet was quickly deleted, however, the image from it has been saved online, which can be viewed below.

A life-long and avid gamer, William D'Angelo was first introduced to VGChartz in 2007. After years of supporting the site, he was brought on in 2010 as a junior analyst, working his way up to lead analyst in 2012. He has expanded his involvement in the gaming community by producing content on his own YouTube channel and Twitch channel dedicated to gaming Let's Plays and tutorials.

I hope they go the Mortal Kombat Trilogy/Super Smash Brothers Ultimate direction and put in every single character from every Mortal Kombat game.

It was an "accident" 😉😉

Truthfully we all know MK12 is on the way. After all the success the franchise has gotten since it's new breath of life in the way of MK9 the franchise is showing no signs of slowing down.

I personally commend the team behind everything as their attention to detail and love for their craft is really paving the way for what we as fighting game fans should expect in a fighting game series.

Whether it's the menu screen, the soundtracks, the Easter eggs, the story mode (which really has upped story modes in fighting games since its debut.) the character selection screens and intros, the team at Neatherrealm show consistently they know and love fighting games.

Can't wait for the inevitable that is Mortal Kombat 12!

Who would've guessed it to be another MK or Injustice? loll I would personally love another Shaolin Monks type game. Enjoyed the coop experience and adventure change of pace.

MK12 is basically Injustice 3 since Boon's sexual attraction for super heroes makes him all the time mix the characters in one game. Or even worse, movie characters. Can't wait for the day Boon will GTF out and let his place to a real MK enthousiast who will focus on the story and on the MK characters. I won't buy another MK game until then.

Surprised it was Injustice 3 first but still, maybe they re making both at the same time.
