More than two years after the release of Mortal Kombat 11, developer NetherRealm has announced that it is ending support for one of the best fighting games around. The developer confirms it is now “focusing on its next project”, which has immediately prompted speculation about Injustice 3.
NetherRealm posted the announcement on the official Mortal Kombat Twitter feed, stating that it will not be adding any more DLC or characters to the game – immediately killing speculation about a possible Fighter Pack 3, which had been rumoured since last year as including another DC Comics character, Deathstroke. Fans were quick to point out that – despite NetherRealm’s claims of 2+ years of support – the team hadn’t actually released anything for MK11 since the movie skin pack in November.
Despite fan upset over the ending of support for MK11 the game still received the longest period of support for any NetherRealm game so far – although that pales in comparison to the amount of content most other fighting games receive, such as Street Fighter V, so that’s not necessarily a good thing.
