Mortal Kombat 11: Everything We Know So Far

A Raiden-centric story? Hell.YES.

NetherRealm

Now that the Injustice 2 DLC cycle has ended, everyone is turning their attention towards the next instalment in the Mortal Kombat franchise.

Just like Scorpion, Mortal Kombat itself has risen from ashes. In the mid 2000's, the future of the series looked bleak at best. After a few underwhelming instalments, critics and fans believed Mortal Kombat was heading the same direction as bygone-era titles like Duke Nukem and Leisure Suite Larry.

However, NetherRealm took the series on an upward swing in 2008, when it released Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe. Fan interest surged as NetherRealm took that rekindling and crafted an excellent game in Mortal Kombat (9). Since then, the gory bandwagon has been hurtling down the road.

NeatherRealm is more popular and successful than ever, as it alternates between the MK and Injustice series'. The cycle operates every two years, and normally we would have heard of the next Mortal Kombat game at E3 2018. That didn't happen however, and we're left wondering what exactly is going on over at NeatherRealm Studios.

Mortal Kombat 11 is inevitable, and logic would suggest it will release next year. So let's round-up the scarce details, rumours (and leaks) that paint a pretty horrific picture of another amazing MK game.

'Ello 'ello, this ere's me profile and I don't know why I'm talking like this because I ain't even English. Anyhoo, I'm actually a bloke from Ireland who now lives in Canada but still spends his days playing video games, watching wrasslin', listening to podcasts, and binge-watching Netflix, and generally avoiding the outdoors at all costs. Y'see, Canada is a cesspool of crazy people and ungodly weather - not just the sixth month long winters, it's currently 40 degrees and I'm wearing SPF 50 to save my pale emerald isle skin tones. Well, it seems I got a little lost. I'll just show myself out.
