Mortal Kombat 12 or Injustice 3: No announcements at The Game Awards 2022
Ed Boon, from NetherRealm Studios, makes it clear that during the TGA 2022 gala they will not announce any new games like Mortal Kombat 12 or Injustice 3.
Lately NetherRealm Studios , responsible for the Mortal Kombat and Injustice sagas , do nothing but deny that they are going to announce new installments of both fighting franchises : Ed Boon, CCO of the studio and creator of both licenses, said in October that there would be no related announcements with Mortal Kombat 12 for the 30th anniversary of this beloved series. He had also previously denied that we were going to see an announcement of the game during EVO 2022 , and now he has done the same with The Game Awards 2022 gala , which is held next week .
With a week left until the Geoff Keighley event takes place, Ed Boon wanted to make it clear that fans of NetherRealm Studios shouldn’t expect new game announcements during the gala . Many people thought that this event was going to reveal the project that Boon and company are working on, especially since four years ago, at The Game Awards 2018, when we got to see Mortal Kombat 11 for the first time.
4 years ago at the Game Awards we managed to pull off a surprise announcement of MK11, which turned out great.
Perhaps too great, as many assumed we'd repeat that trick for our next game.
Thank you for the anticipation, but we're not ready to announce the next NRS game yet.🙏 pic.twitter.com/QMXsuEPchR

“We are not ready to announce the next game yet”
“Four years ago we managed to make a surprise Mortal Kombat 11 announcement at The Game Awards, which ended up going very well. Perhaps too well, since many have assumed that we will repeat that trick for our next game”, Ed Boon begins by saying in his tweet, continuing: “Thanks for the anticipation, but we’re not ready to announce the next game from NetherRealm Studios yet.” Responses to that tweet are divided between those who are disappointed not to receive an announcement and those who are showing their patience for the studio so they don’t feel pressured to reveal anything prematurely .
At the moment we don’t know anything about what’s going on at NetherRealm Studios, although there is one very important detail: it will be Mortal Kombat 12 or Injustice 3, nothing outside of those two series, as has been rumored.
