Although everyone expected that the next NetherRealm game would be Injustice 3, it seems that it has been leaked Mortal Kombat 12 by a NetherRealm employee. Mortal Kombat 11 was released in 2019 and its DLC run officially ended last year. Since then, a variety of “rumors” have surfaced, claiming that the next game would be a Marvel fighting game. However, right now it looks like Mortal Kombat 12 has been leaked.
It seems that the fans could be sure that Mortal Kombat 12 would be the upcoming NetherRealm development. Recently, a NetherRealm Studios employee posted and quickly removed an image online that referenced MK12.

Mortal Kombat 12 would have leaked
Jonathan Andersen is a senior production manager at NRS, and recently posted a seemingly innocuous photo of his desk covered in Mortal Kombat and Injustice memorabilia. Eagle-eyed fans got a closer look at the image, and the top-right monitor contains a file called “MK12 Mast…”. Many believe that this is trolling by NetherRealm. But the truth is that not only “MK12 Mast…” is seen, but there are two other aspects.

First of all, Reptile is mentioned, who was not playable in MK11. Second, and most importantly, there is an email that seems to refer to important information that “our fans eagerly scour the internet for any trace of…” and says to “be very careful with this material.” Everything indicates that Mortal Kombat 12 has been leaked, although it is still a mere rumor. So we will have to wait for an official announcement.
