Did Ed Boon just confirm NetherRealm Studios’ next project with its latest batch of hints?

It’s been over a year since NetherRealm Studios announced the completion of post-launch development for Mortal Kombat 11. What could be their next project? Is Mortal Kombat 12, Injustice 3, something to do with Marvel, or is it something else entirely?

During Ed Boon’s recent Twitter question-and-answer session, he appeared to have issued a crucial hint about NetherRealm Studios’ next project. With that hint in mind, all signs now seem to be pointing towards Mortal Kombat 12.

“Hint [the] Next game? ” seduce On Twitter during an Ed Boon Q&A session. Surprisingly, Ed Bone simply replied by saying “I3 or MK12”.

Unless Boon has something else up his sleeve in some way, these acronyms clearly point to either Injustice 3 or Mortal Kombat 12. However, some of Boon’s previous comments have seemingly confirmed the possibility of Injustice 3 being the next game from NetherRealm Studios.

Back in February of this year, Ed Boon told Game Informer that NetherRealm Studios had broken the pattern. If not, Injustice 3 is probably the game everyone has been anticipating.

“When we broke that pattern, there was a lot of speculation about what we were going to do next,” Boone said. “I can tell you there was a reason for that, and when we announce our next match, it will make more sense.”

The “pattern” Ed Boon is referring to is a reference to how NetherRealm Studios has tended to rotate between titles in the Mortal Kombat and Injustice series since Mortal Kombat 9. We had Mortal Kombat 9, followed by Injustice: Gods Among Us, followed by Mortal Kombat X, followed by Injustice 2, followed by Mortal Kombat 11.

During the same Q&A session, Ed Boon also stated that NetherRealm Studios will “fix soon” the issue with the scarcity of 3D-era characters from recent Mortal Kombat titles. This means that we may end up seeing more characters that appeared in Mortal Kombat 4, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Mortal Kombat: Deception, and Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.

However, Boon doesn’t seem hopeful that we’ll see Kabal in the next installment of Mortal Kombat. Of course, the question mark in his tweet raises some questions.

While we can expect plenty of horror movie characters in NetherRealm Studios’ future Mortal Kombat games, Ed Boon insists that Freddy Fazbear from the Five Nights at Freddy’s series will not be among the guest characters.

Finally, Boone confirmed that he will be at The Game Awards 2022, but that he won’t be “presenting.” This can be taken to mean a few different things, but it appears that the announcement of NetherRealm Studios’ next project won’t actually happen at The Game Awards 2022.
