NetherRealm Studios recently dropped a tease for the next Mortal Kombat game, and it strongly suggested that the fighting franchise’s next instalment won’t be a Mortal Kombat 12 but a complete reboot. Shortly afterward, leaks emerged claiming that the next game in the series would be called Mortal Kombat 1, lending further credence to the reboot theory, and now, that’s been corroborated by in a report published by Windows Central’s Jez Corden.
Corden states that the game indeed called Mortal Kombat 1 and is in development for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and the Nintendo Switch, while also corroborating details on the three editions it will launch with and what their prices will be. It’s claimed once again that on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, the Standard Edition will cost $70, while on the Switch, it will cost $60.
Corden goes on to say that Mortal Kombat 1 is likely to be revealed in the next “couple of weeks”, which aligns with his previous claims of a May announcement. Leaks have claimed that a PlayStation Showcase event is happening in the week of May 25, so that could be where the fighting game gets announced.
Interestingly, according to Corden, Mortal Kombat 1’s post-launch support will see DC’s Peacemaker and potentially The Boys’ Homelander being added to the roster as DLC, which is something he’s claimed previously as well.
As for when it will launch, the report claims Mortal Kombat 1 is targeting a September launch, although those plans “may be in a flux”.
