Mortal Kombat creator is not working on a new IP

In a world where many development studios try to renew themselves by launching new IPs, for Ed Boon instead there is a need for continuity. As revealed by the author and creator of Mortal Kombat and Injustice, in fact, his next project will not be an original game, but rather a continuation of those two brands that have become real points of reference for fighting game fans over the years western-style .

Boon held an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on ​​Twitter , where he replied to a user who asked for information on the next project by NetherRealm Studios , the software house that gave birth to all producer's creations Boon's response was pretty straightforward. "We are working on Mortal Kombat 12 or Injustice 3", the words of the man entrusted to the popular social network, which do not fill the doubts but give us a very precise indication of where the company is today.

While not clearly confirming what NetherRealm Studios' next game will be, this statement lets us understand how the development studio won't try to launch a new IP on the market. He didn't even do it in the most recent Mortal Kombat game, announced a few weeks ago and intended exclusively for mobile devices. In short, a little stability and continuity is needed for Ed Boon and probably, having reached a certain age, he no longer has the desire or the incentive to try something truly new, but prefers to please the fans with increasingly more up with the times, but belonging to brands of the past.

I3 or MK12

Excluding the possibility that Boon and his associates are working on a new franchise, now many are wondering when the reveal of Injustice 3 or Mortal Kombat 12 will take place. According to some hypotheses, an official announcement could come to The Game Awards 2022 . Will it really be like this or will NetherRealm Studios reveal everything only in late 2023?
