Multiple Reports Hint At Mortal Kombat 12 Announcement At PlayStation Showcase In May 2023
Multiple reports suggest that Sony will be holding a PlayStation Showcase during the month of May, 2023, and that Mortal Kombat 12 will be announced at the event.
Several sources appear to suggest that a PlayStation Showcase is scheduled for May, 2023, and that Mortal Kombat 12 will get revealed at the event. Jeff Grubb, who is known for his game industry insights, has stated that it’s safe to say that a PlayStation Showcase will happen in May, 2023. Though, he added that it may get pushed to sometime early in June. At any rate, he firmly believes that the event will happen before Summer Game Fest this year.
In addition, the co-founder of XboxEra and co-host of the XboxEra Podcast, Shpeshal Nick, stated during a recent episode that he’s heard about Mortal Kombat 12 being announced at the next PlayStation Showcase event. Co-host Rand al Thor agreed with him, stating that he expects Sony to have marketing rights for the game.
Meanwhile, Jez Corden of the XboxTwo podcast hinted at a Mortal Kombat 12 reveal sometime in May, 2023. Putting two and two together, it would appear that the game is getting revealed at the PlayStation Showcase that is scheduled to happen sometime in May, 2023.
Recently, it was reported that the official website for the Mortal Kombat series had received a major update, hinting at the possibility of a Mortal Kombat 12 reveal happening soon. Additionally, pro fighting game player, SonicFox, also anticipated an official announcement in this regard sometime soon.
Since receiving a major update, the official Mortal Kombat website now includes character designs quizzes, and highlights on each character’s page. However, the interesting bit here is that the roster of characters featured on the site is from the original Mortal Kombat, and characters from future entries are nowhere to be seen, suggesting that the next entry may end up being another reboot. Whether this is in relation to an announcement involving Mortal Kombat 12 is hard to say, though SonicFox seems convinced.
