Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath (6)

NetherRealm Studios’ has been pushing the envelope with fighting game graphics for a while now, especially with titles like Injustice 2 and more recently with Mortal Kombat 11. Nonetheless, it may be looking to go even further on Xbox Series X and PS5. A new job listing is seeking a Principal Software Engineer for Graphics to work on “state-of-the-art graphics technology for the PS5 and Xbox Series X”.

The kicker is that this will be to “drive the next generation console graphics vision for the Mortal Kombat and Injustice franchises.” The position involves working closely with the Lead Engineer and team to “develop state-of-the-art graphics technology for the PS5, and Xbox Series X. Your domain will span the entire rendering pipeline and your responsibilities will include optimization, design, and implementation of pivotal new graphics technology.”

It’s likely that Mortal Kombat 11 and Injustice 2 will be making the jump to next-gen consoles in the coming year. In the case of the former, it would make even more sense especially as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has spoken about “years of new content” being planned. However, it wouldn’t be strange if NetherRealm has already started planning sequels in both franchises for next-gen consoles.

The DC Fandome event is taking place on August 22nd at 10 AM PT with WB Games and DC announcing a new game. Maybe an announcement of Injustice 2 for Xbox Series X and PS5 could be made as well? Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
