As the developers at NetherRealm Studios have confirmed, we can look forward to news about Mortal Kombat 11 this week. Could this possibly hide the revelation of new content?
In the past few days, we heard the rumor that the developers at NetherRealm Studios have not yet put Mortal Kombat 11 aside and are planning new content for the fighting title.
The US studio itself is now causing fresh speculation. On the one hand, the developers in the person of Creative Director Ed Boon announced that Mortal Kombat 11 has sold 8 million times so far. In addition, Boon promised that players can look forward to news about the dark fighting title this week.
“After 8 million (and kounting) MK11 games sold we’re not done yet. Stay tuned to see what’s next for MK11 this week!,” Ed Boon said through his official Twitter account.
Since Boon did not go into more detail, it can currently only be speculated what exactly the creative director of NetherRealm Studios is referring to. A few days ago, however, Dataminer encountered indications in the current source code of Mortal Kombat 11 that a new story DLC as well as further characters could be planned in terms of new content – including Mileena, Rain, and an unspecified guest appearance.
It would of course also be conceivable that NetherRealm Studios are working on a next-gen upgrade for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, which will be officially announced this week. We may know more in a few days.
