Following the formal news that Mortal Kombat 11 support has ended, it is unclear what project NetherRealm Studios will focus on next. They may collaborate on a variety of initiatives, but until they unveil anything, speculation will continue.
However, with so many options, speculation may be entertaining. Here are several prospective video games that NetherRealm Studios could produce in the future, ranging from Mortal Kombat 12 to Injustice 3.
12th Mortal Kombat
It’s obvious that NetherRealm Studios would begin Mortal Kombat 12 as soon as Mortal Kombat 11 was complete. Since Mortal Kombat 11 was so fantastic, it could just be wishful thinking, but there’s still a chance.
Mortal Kombat 11 was published in 2019, so it isn’t very ancient by any sense of the imagination. The most recent significant update was made available in the middle of 2018.
It might seem odd that the next Mortal Kombat game is currently in production, although NetherRealm Studios has lately been making changes.
The business just published a narrative extension for one of their games for the first time ever. It both perpetuated and reversed the narrative.
The whole chronology was reset at the conclusion of Mortal Kombat 11, and it is unclear how the narrative will proceed. Fans are anxious to play Mortal Kombat 12 given the intriguing idea that NetherRealm Studios is allowed to write whatever tale they like.
In addition to the tale extension, a brand-new feature allowed you to modify your character’s skills and even their intro and outro sequences. Mortal Kombat is always changing, therefore it makes sense that they will release Mortal Kombat 12 immediately after 11.
Shaolin Monks: A Mortal Kombat Sequel
Beyond Mortal Kombat 12, the follow-up to Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is another game that fans would like playing. It was a beat ’em up with Liu Kang and Kung Lao instead of a fighting game.
The Shaolin Monks were followed as they interacted and engaged in combat with several Mortal Kombat characters as it narrated the tale of the second Mortal Kombat video game.
In addition to Kung Lao and Liu Kang, additional playable characters in the co-op game include Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Kitana. It’s about time we explored more of the Mortal Kombat world with a sequel given how rich and full of promise it is.
In fact, Mortal Kombat: Fire and Ice, featuring Scorpion and Sub-Zero, nearly became a sequel. Mortal Kombat has been on a roll, and even if the game never saw the light of day, we believe they could do the concept credit if they tried.
Injustice 3 is the game that is most likely being created by NetherRealm Studios. DC superheroes including The Flash, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman engage in one-on-one combat in this fighting game. The Injustice series’ plot is another excellent feature in addition to the gameplay.
The Joker is killed by Superman after tricking him into murdering his wife while she is still pregnant and detonating Metropolis. This sends him down a bad road, and he ends up ruling the globe as its dictator. Other superheroes and villains quickly follow suit and join him. Batman represents the other end of the spectrum.
In order to defeat Superman, Batman takes the helm of the rebellion and teams up with improbable friends like Lex Luthor and Harley Quinn. He takes on the role of a leader and mentor for newer superheroes in the sequel.
Injustice 3 is more plausible than simply wishful thinking since it fits with NetherRealm Studios’ history. The Injustice and Mortal Kombat games are released simultaneously by the same developer.
With this tendency in mind, the release of Injustice 3 seems all but certain.
Marvel vs. Capcom
Take it with a grain of salt since there is simply speculation that this game is being developed. But it’s impossible to understate how significant that would be if it were true. Earlier this year, Daniel Richtman spread a rumor that NetherRealm Studios was developing a Marvel fighting game.
Although there is no proof for this claim, we won’t let that stop us from being thrilled about the idea of a Marvel fighting game. Marvel has a history of working with Capcom on the Marvel vs. Capcom combat series, so they are no strangers to the fighting genre.
The series’ last game, Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite, received mixed reviews upon its debut in 2017; both IGN and Polygon gave it a 7.7/10 rating. The game only sold 1.7 million copies instead of the 2 million projected, falling short of expectations (as of March 31, 2021).
It would be interesting to see Marvel characters in a new kind of fighting game, even if we like the Marvel Vs. Capcom series and would want to see more of it. With their outstanding storytelling abilities, NetherRealm would unquestionably excel in the Marvel world.
There are several options available to NetherRealm Studios, but Injustice 3 and Mortal Kombat 12 seem to be the most probable. Whatever game they create next, we can be sure it will be entertaining.
