Hi, what are you looking for?


Mortal Kombat 12 is confirmed for a 2023 release, says Warner Bros. CEO

It may not be the official word from Ed Boon or NetherRealm Studios, but we’ll take new Mortal Kombat announcements any way we can. Which is why we’re so hype for what happened during Thursday’s Warner Bros. earnings call, where Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav confirmed Mortal Kombat for a 2023 release.

“And there’s lots more to come,” Zaslav said during the earnings call, “including the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat 12 and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, games also set for release this year, with ambitious launch projections.”

NetherRealm Studios

The last game in the series, Mortal Kombat 11 was released in 2019, with an expansion named Aftermath added the following year. Mortal Kombat will also see a new RPG game released for mobile platforms, Mortal Kombat Onslaught, sometime in 2023. Onslaught will be only the fourth game in the Mortal Kombat franchise to not be a fighting game.

“We are pushing the boundaries of Mortal Kombat to allow players to experience the franchise in new ways, while still staying true to its core visceral nature,” Ed Boon, CCO of NetherRealm Studios, said in a press release. “With Mortal Kombat: Onslaught, we reimagined Mortal Kombat into a strategic team-based collection RPG with fast-paced, group melee combat that both new and existing fans can enjoy.”

As always, we’ll keep you updated when more information on Mortal Kombat 12 becomes available.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
