NetherRealm Studios are fighting game champions at this point, pushing the Injustice and Mortal Kombat series into the modern age and onto our latest consoles.

Though Mortal Kombat is a series that certainly hit its stride back in the day, there is still a lively fanbase for the title, with 2019's 11th game tiding players over until the expected 12th.

We still don't know an awful lot about what NetherRealm is working on right now, but now, the franchise co-creator has made an announcement on what comes next. And to be fair, it's pretty predictable.

What Is NetherRealm Working On Next? 

In a brief Twitter Q&A, co-creator of Injustice and Mortal Kombat Ed Boon has revealed exactly what could be next for NetherRealm. We've got to say, we're not particularly surprised.

"Hint for the next game?" asks one fan in the thread. "I3 or MK12," says Boon in response. Well then.

Given that the only games the company really works on are those under the Injustice or Mortal Kombat banner (sans WWE Immortals in 2015 and some Batman: Arkham adaptations for mobile), it's hard to say that we're surprised about this revelation.

Given that Injustice has been dormant since 2017 - and fans still have a lot of love to give to the gritty DC Universe fighting game - there's a lot of hope that the pleasure will go back to that franchise.

Considering Mortal Kombat got its most recent entry in with MK11, we're hopeful that we'll be squeezing back into spandex to see Batman and Superman beat the crap out of each other. 

Ed Boon Trolls Fans Over DLC Character

One fan used the Q&A opportunity to ask exactly why players have had to pay for the Mortal Kombat character Rain twice as DLC.

Rain appeared in both Mortal Kombat (2011) and Mortal Kombat 11 and became the first Mortal Kombat character to appear as two separate DLC.

Ed Boon responded like a despondent parent - "because he is purple, special and unlike any other ninja." Comedy gold.

This "because I said so" attitude is hilarious and reflective of NetherRealm's creation process. We'll be getting more Injustice or Mortal Kombat, and we'll like it.
