Mortal Kombat 12 Announcement Could Be Coming This Week, It’s Claimed

A respected pro fighting game player has suggested that Mortal Kombat 12 could be revealed this week.

SonicFox, otherwise known as Dominique Mclain, has established themself as a major player in the fighting game community after topping six Evolution Championship Series events for five different franchises and becoming the first-ever Final Kombat champion for MK11. Sonicfox clearly knows their way around a gamepad especially when it comes to Mortal Kombat. A tweet sent out from their account suggests that they believe an announcement is coming this week.

Fans of the franchise have fallen prey to false promises of an official reveal for Mortal Kombat 12 but are cautiously optimistic given SonicFox’s history with the franchise and their standing in the fighting game community. Their claim could have significant weight behind it as it’s drawn the attention of Industry Insider Jeff Grub who critically claims that he thinks they’re “going to space”.

It’s hard to tell if Grubb is being serious with his claim or if he’s just having some fun with the fans, the franchise has definitely pulled off some crazy twists in the past though. It’s not outside the realm of possibility.

The existence of Mortal Kombat 12 was revealed last month in a Warner Bros. Discovery earnings call which seemingly confirmed a release date of 2023 for the game. Netherrelm has enjoyed a consistent winning streak since they revitalized the series in 2011. Mortal Kombat 11 set a new precedent for the franchise which left anticipation sky-high for the next installment in the series. If it is aiming for a 2023 release date it’ll be met with stiff competition from Street Fighter 6 and Tekken 8. We’ll have more details to come this week.

On the real though, would you like to see Mortal Kombat go to space?
