NetherRealm ‘prioritising Mortal Kombat 12 over Injustice 3’ due to WB uncertainty, it’s claimed | VGC
WB Games studios have been tipped as for sale during the past year…
Video is timestamped for when he starts talking about NRSNetherRealm Studios could be prioritising a new Mortal Kombat game over its DC superhero series Injustice, due to uncertainty over its future with parent company WB Games.
That’s according to journalist Jeff Grubb, who cites sources in a new Giant Bomb video who suggested that the developer is currently working on Mortal Kombat 12.
“It lines up with the reality and it lines up with what I’ve heard, where Mortal Kombat 12 would make the most sense because that’s a game they know will make money, it will sell well… Mortal Kombat 11 was great, it’s doing well, but if you come out with Mortal Kombat 12 it will also sell and do well,” Grubb said.
“At the same time, you don’t have to use any of these Batman or Superman characters that might be tied up in licensing if you try to get rid of NetherRealm or sell it to whoever.”
He doesn't cite direct sources, almost sounds like he's just guessing. To be honest I don't see why they'd go directly into MK12 when they could have just kept MK11 going with its huge install base and just add more DLC packs. Unless 12 will just be built off the frame of 11
