Although the developer has previously hinted that the team may be working on another franchise.
Mortal Kombat 12 or Injustice 3 ? One of the two will be the next game from NetherRealm Studios : revealed Ed Boon, chief creative officer of the development team and co-creator of the two franchises, responding to a user on Twitter.
Rumors circulated last year that Mortal Kombat 12 will take priority over Injustice 3 due to team uncertainties , but the situation at Warner Bros. seems to have settled down somewhat and therefore the studio may not be in a precarious position, which it would lead him to favor the more famous brand of the two.
Even without having added details on the two projects, with his answer Ed Boon practically confirmed that both games are in development and that therefore the decision on which of the two to launch first will depend on different factors than the pure and simple production aspect.
Maybe we will see the announcement of Mortal Kombat 12 and/or Injustice 3 during The Game Awards 2022 on December 8th ? It would certainly be an eventuality that fans of both series would welcome with enthusiasm.
