Ed Boon, the director of NetherRealm Studiosseems to have indicated the possibility that the team is working on a game different than usual based on a comment he made during a recent interview published by Game Informer.
On the occasion of his award ceremony with his entry into the Hall of Fame of the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, Ed Boon seems to have made a reference to what NetherRealm Studios is developing, apparently indicating something new than usual, as he spoke of “breaking a pattern” in which they were now inserted.
The director of the team reported that NetherRealm is known so far for developing the various chapters of Mortal Kombat and Injusticehowever, it looks like something is about to change in the near future: “When we have broken this patternthere has been a lot of speculation about what we will be able to do next, “Boon said.” I can say there is a reason to think about this and, when we announce our next game, it will all make a lot more sense. “
However, he could not go into more detail: “Right now, I would run into a lot of problems if I said something,” he said, hinting that the new game in development at NetherRealm is still top secret, but it could be something new. and different from what the team has done so far.
NetherRealm recently closed support for Mortal Kombat 11 precisely to focus on this new game which according to some rumors could even be a fighting game on Marvel characters, although at this point it could be something else completely different.
