More than two years after its release in April 2019, after adding 12 characters after the release, Mortal Kombat 11 has officially ended. NetherRealm Studios said on Twitter today that it’s time to move on to other things and that no more content will be made for the game.
"NetherRealm is now focusing on its next project and after more than two years supporting Mortal Kombat 11, the game's DLC, including the characters, is over," the studio posted in a tweet.

Mortal Kombatants might be disappointed because there will be no more cameos from 90s movies coming into Earthrealm, but with the bad news comes some good news: NetherRealm is moving on to something new. Nothing was said about what this news might be, but we assume we will hear something about Injustice 3 in the relatively near future.
Injustice, for those unfamiliar with the name, is a fighting game that is very similar to Mortal Kombat, but with DC Comics characters and more focused on the individual player. In fact, we said ours 85% of critics of Injustice 2 say that the "lavish story produced more … does a significantly better job of telling a Batman vs Superman story than the movie."
An unofficial mockery of Injustice 3 appeared in August 2020, although there was no hope that it would be presented at the next Fandome event. But that's not the only possibility: There have also been rumors in recent months that NetherRealm is working on a Marvel fighting game, a possibility that appeared in the creator of Mortal Kombat, Ed Boon. play in May.
It seems unlikely, as NetherRealm is owned by Warner Bros. (the parent company of DC Comics), which also has the British studio Rocksteady working in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. But in a world where Fortnite is a punch bowl for all brands known to humanity, perhaps a fighting game that spans the entire universe is exactly what comes to NetherRealm, after years of attracting characters from different franchises in Mortal Kombat.
