Fans of Mortal Kombat 11 are getting excited after the game’s director sent out a cryptic post on Twitter suggesting an announcement was coming soon.
Game Director Ed Boon, who has a history of teasing fans online, sent out a mysterious Tweet to his near-600,000 followers. The post read: “I see a tease in our future.” That was all Boon wrote, but the 7-word Tweet was enough to get Twitter tongues wagging, with fans of the game pondering what the impending announcement could be.
The Tweet was then responded to by another, this time from the official Mortal Kombat 11 Twitter account. The post featured a meme of game character Liu Kang trying to fathom what the original post from Boon could mean.
As well as teasing fans on an upcoming announcement, Boon also chose to address one of the most talked-about Mortal Kombat leaks currently doing the rounds. Rumours that Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell is set to make an appearance in the game were fuelled by Scorpion voice actor, Ron Yuan, who told fans Campbell’s character Ash Williams was coming to Mortal Kombat 11.
However, Boon nipped that idea in the bud, claiming the rumour is untrue: “The silver lining to the many “leaks” is … there are so many wrong ones… which conveniently drown out the true ones,” he posted on his official Twitter page.
Another recent leak came from a datamine of the game’s files, which indicated there are another 19 pieces of DLC on the way. But whether that means a further 19 characters or just new skins for the existing ones remains to be seen, as Boon refused to be drawn on that topic.
So, it looks like those hoping for some additional DLC characters will just have to wait and see. But with the tease saying some news is coming soon, hopefully Mortal Kombat aficionados won’t have to wait long to find out.
