EVO 2022 kicks off later this week, and as part of that, Sony announced a new livestream with “exciting content and revelations.”
According to IGN, publishers and developers such as Capcom, Warner Bros., Bandai Namco, Arc System Works and SNK will take part in the show. Bye a little fans seemed to be anticipating a possible announcement of the next Mortal Kombat game, but that doesn’t seem to be coming.
Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon has apparently dismissed the rumors via social media, going on to state that it’s time for Street Fighter and “other great fighting games” to be in the sun.
Of course, we’re talking about social media here, and sometimes the answer “no” just won’t be accepted – some fans are now wondering if Warner Bros. injustice instead of an ad.
Although there will apparently be no Mortal Kombat announcements, Mortal Kombat 11 has been confirmed as part of the EVO 2022 game roster. Nintendo has also withdrawn Super Smash Bros. from the event.
Earlier this year, producer NetherRealm teased Mortal Kombat 12. Some sources also suggested that NetherRealm would prioritize this next game over another action superhero.
If we hear any updates, we will let you know.
