The announcement of Mortal Kombat 12 it is imminent. Technically, the game is over, and the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery He confirmed it a few months ago… with a launch this year 2023.
It remains to be seen what it will look like… and above all, what final title Mortal Kombat 12 will have. Because this first teaser, which NetherRealm has just uploaded on its social networks, suggests that they may be skipping a number…
In the video, published by the official game account and by its creator ed boonyou only see a clock with hands… and when it reaches 12, which is when it touches, skips it and goes directly to 1. What can this mean?

Mortal Kombat 12 could be a “soft-reboot”, at least narrative
A few days ago, Mortal Kombat posted a video with messages of thanks from the NetherRealm team for the 30th anniversary of the franchise (celebrated in 2022), it ends with a CG animation with the last grains falling from a Hourglass.
It is an hourglass of Kronika, an important artifact in the history of Mortal Kombat 11, capable of turn back time and change the course of history.
The last of them explodes by falling into a kind of “big bang”, which could mean a relative narrative reboot of the saga, when a new time line is restored, making a full stop with respect to Mortal Kombat 11 and its Aftermath expansion. Maybe it’s not called Mortal Kombat 12…
However, we’re sure NetherRealm won’t stray too far from the path blazed by Mortal Kombat 11, the most successful installment in the entire history of the franchise.
Perhaps in the rumored PlayStation Showcase scheduled for the end of May Mortal Kombat 12 be one of the invited third party games, given the good relationship between Sony and WB Games.
