Insider: NetherRealm’s next game could be Mortal Kombat 12, not Injustice 3

Following the previous release schedule NetherRealm Studios, the studio’s next game should be Injustice 3, however, the developers could have preferred the new part Mortal kombat instead of continuing the superhero fighting game due to uncertainty about its future with parent company WB Games. GamesBeat editor Jeff Grubb spoke about it in the release of the GrubbSnax podcast

“It fits with the real world and what I’ve heard. There is a lot more sense in Mortal Kombat 12 because they know it will make money and sell well. Mortal Kombat 11 was a great game, performing well, but if you release Mortal Kombat 12 will do well and sell well. “

“That being said, you don’t need to use any of these characters. [DC]like Batman or Superman, who could be tied to licensing if NetherRealm is tried to get rid of or sold to someone else. “

Last year, NetherRealm’s vacancies revealed the studio’s plans for new parts of both Injustice and Mortal Kombat franchises. The developers are already closely engaged in the next project.

Moreover, against the background of the merger Warner media and Discovery information has recently spread across the network that WB Games is allegedly considering selling NetherRealm and TT Games. The publisher promptly denied the rumor, saying both studios were included in the deal and would continue to remain under its wing.
