Mortal Kombat is hands down one of the biggest fighting game franchises out there and it has been quite some time since we received a new title for the series. The last mainline title was released back in 2019. Since then, it has been three years without any information about the sequel. That has been the case till now at least, the latest tweet by a Mortal Kombat cast member might say otherwise.
Andrew Bowen, the voice actor for everybody’s beloved character from the franchise, Johnny Cage, has just visited the Warner Brothers studio and posted a video about it. In a now-deleted tweet, the Johnny Cage voice actor was seen in front of the Warner Bros. Studio with a sly smile on his face and Mortal Kombat music playing in the background. Many fans feel that the voice actor might be teasing a potential reveal for the long-awaited sequel to the series.
The situation that has sparked curiosity amongst players is that Andrew Bowen was quick to delete the tweet and remove its existence from the internet. Players have been wondering whether he deleted the tweet because he revealed something that he shouldn’t have or was just faffing around and decided to get rid of the video. We won’t know until we receive an official announcement from NetherRealm Studios.
According to the latest reports, the players know that a MK game is in the works, but do not know any other information related to it. In 2021, the fans spotted a desktop file that had a cryptic name which pointed towards MK12. Ed Boon, the creative director at NetherRealm has also come out to confirm that his team is working on a new game, but is not allowed to disclose any information about the game.
