Mortal Kombat 12 in the Pipeline - Actor's Tweet Suggests

Mortal Kombat 12 has probably been in development for some time now. Another indication of this may have been a Twitter post by actor Andrew Bowen - the game's Johnny Cage.

Reports that 2019's Mortal Kombat 11 will not be the last installment of the popular fighting game series have been appearing online for some time. In August 2021, journalist Jeff Grubb suggested that work on a new game is underway and is being prioritized. No wonder - the series is selling extremely well. What's more, NetherRealm Studios, which created its latest parts, announced a month earlier that it is ending support for MK11 and focusing on the next game.

The first fairly significant hints about it appeared about six months ago in a photo published by one of the studio's employees. Another argument may be the recent Twitter post of actor Andrew Bowen, who provided the voice of Johnny Cage in MKX and MK11 (via VGC).

In the short video we could see Bowen near Warner Bros. headquarters. In the background, we could hear a theme resembling the one from Mortal Kombat 2's intro; there were also words: "Every deadly technique. It's savage combat".

The best evidence of the message of this video is the fact that it was removed rather quickly - probably on the recommendation of Warner Bros. However, many people managed to see it. What's more, it was copied and shared on the Instant Gaming (@InstantGamingIT) profile on Twitter (below). Everything seems to indicate that the announcement of Mortal Kombat 12 may be getting closer.
