Ed Boon latest developer to stir up the rumor mill ahead of E3.

NetherRealm could be readying an announcement for Mortal Kombat 11.  At least that’s what followers of Ed Boon are thinking after the developer posted a teasing tweet.  Boon who typically interacts with fans on the social network replied to one follower on the platform who suggested that new content for Injustice would be appreciated in 2018.

To which Boon replied, “You know what else would be kool….?”  Obviously this is the vaguest of tweets, but swapping the c for a k in kool has Mortal Kombat fans hoping that Boon’s comments mean that the developer is working on a new Mortal Kombat game, which would seemingly be Mortal Kombat 11.

Last year’s release of Injustice 2 landed to critical acclaim, and it would make a lot of sense for the developer to be working on something for either 2018 or 2019 on the Mortal Kombat front.  With E3 2018 just around the corner, an announcement of another Mortal Kombat game would certainly give fighting game fans something to look forward to in the weeks ahead.

Mortal Kombat X launched back in April of 2015, so it’s definitely time to start hearing about the future of the popular fighting game series.  Recent Mortal Kombat games haven’t relied on E3 as the spot to make their announcements though.  Perhaps this year will be the exception.
