The next game in the Mortal Kombat series has been teased by a producer at NetherRealm, a sequel to the latter has been confirmed, and series creator Ed Boon will be honored by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences. It’s a perfect day for Spine Severe fans full of blood and ninja elements.

Mortal Kombat 12 has been teased on Twitter by NetherRealm producer Jonathan Anderson, who posted the image below of various gadgets from the series. The image also contains sections of his screens, however, one of which shows part of a warning email about information leakage: “Our fans eagerly scrape the internet for a trace.” Naturally, the image shows a file on the right screen called “MK12_Mast” on it.

So: Mortal Kombat 12 is on the way. Anderson deleted the photo shortly after it was posted, but this is in line with the way NetherRealm has in the past used social media to share snippets about games.

Additionally, New Line studio has hired Jeremy Slater to write Mortal Kombat 2 (thanks, Deadline). Slater was a lead writer on the Marvel Moon Knight series, developed The Umbrella Academy, and created the television series The Exorcist. The first film was released in April 2021, it achieved the top spot at the box office, and also proved popular on HBO Max. If you ask me, it was well: better than the old movies for sure, although that hardly says much.
