Mortal Kombat 12 Release Date for 2023 Accidentally Confirmed by Warner Bros

Fighting game enthusiasts can look forward to 2023 as Warner Bros. has accidentally confirmed that Mortal Kombat 12 will be released that year. This revelation was made during an earnings call from Warner Bros. Discovery, where Andrew Slabin, the executive vice president of global investor strategy, mentioned Mortal Kombat 12 as part of the company’s ambitious launch projections.

Unintentional Confirmation of Mortal Kombat 12

Despite this accidental confirmation, Warner Bros. has yet to release any official statement regarding Mortal Kombat 12. There have been no teasers, trailers, or hints about the game’s development, except for a few social media posts from series talent.

The only Mortal Kombat 12 teaser so far has been a picture posted by Johnny Cage voice actor Andrew Bowen of himself standing in the Warner Bros. studio lot. Meanwhile, NetherRealm creative director Ed Boon has only mentioned that they are “working on another game,” without sharing any further information.

Competition for Fighting Games in 2023

Mortal Kombat 12 will be released in the same year as Street Fighter 6 and potentially Tekken 8, which is scheduled for release between April 2023 and March 2024. This means that 2023 will be a jam-packed year for fighting games, creating some serious competition for players looking to purchase the latest titles.

NetherRealm Studios, the developer behind Mortal Kombat and Injustice, has been slowly teasing their next game since the release of Mortal Kombat 11 in 2019. This premature announcement from Warner Bros. could either be a mere slip of the tongue or a deliberate move to create hype for the upcoming game.

Final Thoughts

Whether this announcement was intentional or not, Mortal Kombat 12’s confirmation for a 2023 release has undoubtedly piqued the interest of fans eagerly waiting for the next installment of the popular franchise. With the competition for fighting games in 2023, it will be interesting to see how Mortal Kombat 12 fares against its rivals.
