Warner Bros expects to release Mortal Kombat 12 in 2023

During its latest earnings call, Warner Bros stated that it expects to release the next part in the Mortal Kombat series, Mortal Kombat 12, in 2023. This is coming straight from the publisher, even though the game hasn’t been officially announced yet.

To be honest, I really can’t see how Mortal Kombat 12 will release in 2023. That is unless it comes out in Holiday 2023. If that’s the plan, then we can expect an official reveal at E3 2023. Still, and given what has happened with Tekken 8 and Street Fighter 6, this seems unlikely.

My guess is that Mortal Kombat 12 will slip into 2024. That’s the most logical scenario in my opinion. After all, Warner Bros and NetherRealm will need to heavily market it.

It will be interesting to see whether Mortal Kombat 12 will target current-gen platforms only. I’m also curious about its graphics. After all, Injustice 2 and Mortal Kombat 11 had amazing cut-scenes. And yes, the game will be certainly using Unreal Engine.

Stay tuned for more!
