Mortal Kombat 12 Game has been leaked by NetherRealm Studios’ producer, possibly on purpose

The existence of Mortal Kombat 12 appears to have been ‘leaked' by a NetherRealm Studios producer, but this could have been done on purpose.

Jonathan Andersen, a senior production manager at the fighting game firm, tweeted a picture of his desk on Thursday.

On Andersen's desk were Mortal Kombat memorabilia, artwork from Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II, and Injustice 2. However, keen-eyed MK enthusiasts noticed a file named “MK12 Mast…” on his monitor.

After around 10 minutes, Andersen reportedly erased the image, presumably because it disclosed that NetherRealm was developing on the unreleased Mortal Kombat 12. 

However, it's also possible that the photo was a planned tease (or a troll) in disguise of an accident.

A portion of an email on the same photo reads; “our fans eagerly scrape the internet for any trace” of Mortal Kombat information. “Take extra care with this material,”  the email continues, adding more fuel to the rumor.

NetherRealm CEO Ed Boon is notorious for teasing announcements, often in an overt manner. Therefore, it wouldn't be surprising if the business did something similar on purpose.

VentureBeat contributor Jeff Grubb reported last August that NetherRealm is likely working on MK12 currently. According to the journalist, Warner Bros. doesn't want the studio working on licensed projects in case it sells NetherRealm.

For the past year, NetherRealm's future with parent firm WB Gaming has been questionable, with AT&T apparently considering selling off parts of its games business.

NetherRealm's decision to produce another Mortal Kombat game is also financially sound. Mortal Kombat 11 sold over 12 million copies, as of July 2021 and it's evident that MK fans want more. The fans took the time to examine Andersen's photo and zoom in on the computer's tiny text.

In other Mortal Kombat news, NewLine has hired Jeremy Slater (Moon Knight) to script the sequel to the Mortal Kombat film. Other details, such as directors and whether performers are returning or making a fresh appearance, are still unknown.
