In what may be one of the more significant announcements of the day, Warner Bros. has now revealed that Mortal Kombat 12 is set to be released at some point in 2023. What’s even more surprising is that it wasn’t disclosed during the State of Play that occurred on the same day, but on an earnings call.
At the time of writing, official channels, like NetherRealm Studios themselves, are yet to confirm this revelation. But since it was involved in a high profile WB financial call involving a large number of stakeholders, we can assume that this information may already have some accuracy to it.
Mortal Kombat 12 release date window
Naturally, as this wasn’t a formal announcement, details were very vague and it was just the briefest of mentions for the investors on the call.
“And there’s lots more to come, including the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat 12 and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League – games also set for release this year, with ambitious launch projections.”
The announcement comes as no real surprise considering plenty of subtle looks had been spreading through the internet in the months leading up to this revelation. One of the more recent teases that had been put on display involved a NetherRealm developer seemingly sharing an innocent photo of Mortal Kombat memorabilia.
However, a few eagle-eyed Redditors immediately noticed something else on the photo, specifically on the computer screen found on the top right. Though initially difficult to make out, one of the files on the desktop reads, “MK12_Master”, which essentially gave fans all they needed to fuel the speculation machine once again.
Now that it’s been confirmed, 2023 is off to a fantastic start for fighting game fans as Mortal Kombat 12, Street Fighter 6, and possibly even Tekken 8 are all going to be released within the same year. More details are likely to surface the closer we get to its release, which will most likely be at some point during the third or fourth quarter of the year.
The most recent entry in the series was Mortal Kombat 11, which arrived back in 2011. You can check out our review for that game over here.
