Ed Boone of NetheRealm Studio, the co-creator of the cult Mortal Kombat series, announced that he would not be announcing the next game at The Game Awards 2022 ceremony scheduled for December 9.
This news comes after a year of silence, before which Boone had conducted a poll regarding the remake of the original Mortal Kombat game and rumors that he may be behind the super-popular Multiversus were later disproved.
Boone reported that the unexpected announcement of 2019’s Mortal Kombat 11 went great and that many fans expect the same thing to happen again. Unfortunately, he noted that NetheRealm Studios is not ready to release the next game yet.
However, Ed Boon is known for online trolling of his social media followers, so there are those who think he is intentionally misleading fans and that the studio’s next game will be released in about four days. However, there is no official confirmation of the announcement.
This is not the first time Boone has tried to live up to fans’ expectations of the Mortal Kombat or Injustice game series by attending various events. Most recently, he confirmed that while he will be attending The Game Awards show, he is doing so as a spectator.
As for what this project might be, well, Boone narrowed it down to Mortal Kombat 12 and Injustice 3.
As previously reported, The Game Awards show is scheduled for December 9, and among the nominees are God of War Ragnarok, Elden Ring which is arguably the strongest contender for the Game of the Year award, A Plaque Tale: Requiem and Stray.
