NetherRealm Studios is apparently working on a new Mortal Kombat game, according to Spanish-language voice actor Jose Edurado Garza Escudero, aka Lalo Garza.

Garza revealed on Twitter that he was involved in the as-yet unannounced Mortal Kombat XI, where he was dubbing the characters of Kung Lao and Reptile. For whatever reason this is no longer the case, hence why he's a bit miffed in his post. 

'Well finally I confirm that the 'professionals' of @ PINKNOISEloc decided to remove my characters from #MortalKombatXI. How sad that a company that wanted a lot ends up making decisions that affect both you, the consumers. Goodbye Kung Lao and Reptile,' said Garza, via a translation (thanks PST).

Despite initially mentioning Mortal Kombat XI by name, he later attempted to clarify his comments and said that he project could simply be 'MKXI, MK10.5, MKXYZ or whatever.' 

NetherRealm obviously hasn't said anything about at new Mortal Kombat game, although a quick look back at their release schedule indicates one should be on the horizon. The studio has alternated between MK and Injustice the last few years after all, and typically release in the spring.

At this point in time it's looking unlikely a new Mortal Kombat would arrive in time for spring 2019, although there's nothing to say it isn't in the works all the same.
