Johnny Cage Actor Might Be Teasing Mortal Kombat 12 – IGN
Andrew Bowen, the voice actor for Johnny Cage in the Mortal Kombat series, is back on the lot at Warner Bros. for… something.
In a now-deleted tweet, Bowen shared a video of the voice actor standing in the Warner Bros. studio lot before staring at the camera with a mischievious grin. It’s the latest in a series of Tweets Bowen has been sharing online of him working on something in the Warner Bros. lot.
Fans have been quick to point out that this is yet another tease for the next Mortal Kombat game, which has been not-so-subtly hinted at over the past year. NetherRealm Studios’ Jonathan Andersen previously shared a photo that included a desktop file reference to Mortal Kombat 12.
While NetherRealm still isn’t revealing what it has in store, it has confirmed there is a new game in the works. When IGN interviewed NetherRealm creative director Ed Boon, he had no issue confirming the team is “working on another game,” though he was not at liberty to say what it is.
NetherRealm Interactive is a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Interactive, which now belongs to the combined Warner Bros. Discovery group. While the initial company merge cast some doubt over the future of several WB game studios, including NetherRealm, it doesn’t appear to have impacted any new game development from the Mortal Kombat developer.
