A new Netherrealm video designed to thank fans and players seems like it may be teasing Mortal Kombat 12 with a peek at the Sands of Time hourglass from Mortal Kombat 11. As we may recall, Kronika held it during the game, with the endings of that title showing who controlled it based on certain actions. (The events of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath suggested what the New Era might hold.)

The over two minute video involves members of the staff thanking people for playing entries in the series. Artists, engineers, designers, directors, producers, managers, animators, and developers for playing the game for 30 years. Notably, Co-creator Ed Boon showed up at the 1:47 mark and said, “we’re not quite done yet.” After his appearance, the possible Mortal Kombat 12 teaser showing a grain from the Sands of Time hourglass Kronika held in the eleventh game appears, then explodes.

We already know that Mortal Kombat 12 is in development and on the way. It was referenced during the Warner Bros Discovery Fourth Quarter 2022 Earnings Call. At the time, it was noted as coming “this year” in 2023.

Mortal Kombat 11 is available on the PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and it will be at Evo 2023. It is unknown which platforms the next entry could appear on.
