The first unofficial teaser for Mortal Kombat 12 dropped recently and has already made headlines. The evergreen and world-famous Mortal Kombat franchise was bound to get another installment. More than 4 years after the release of MK11, many fans were waiting for some information on the next game. Warner Bros accidentally revealed earlier this year that MK12 was slated for a 2023 release.

Mortal Kombat 12 Teaser Explained

Well, there is a major reason why we’re calling the Mortal Kombat 12 teaser “unconventional”. For starters, the “teaser” video is titled “Thank You from NetherRealm”. And for the majority of the 2-minute video, you will see several developers of the game thanking fans for their role in making the franchise a success. In the closing stages, we also see Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon giving a final vote of thanks before the scene cuts to the interiors of an hourglass that has sand draining through it. And moments later, we see a single grain of sand – that is surprisingly very detailed – explode into fine pieces. “So, what did that exactly mean?” – This is the question on the minds of several MK fans. Let us explain it to you.

In most ending sequences of Mortal Kombat 11 it is assumed that some character took control of the Hourglass and reshaped the timeline. In the teaser, you will see that a universe appears to take shape right after the big explosion. Hence, our speculation is that Mortal Kombat 12 is going for a full reboot.
