Mortal Kombat 11 is still going strong, it seems. The fighting game recently passed a new sales milestone, and with that, developer NetherRealm Studios has confirmed more is on the way.
Today, Creative Director Ed Boon tweeted that Mortal Kombat 11 has sold eight million ("and kounting") copies since it launched last year. Despite a number of DLC fighters and a full-on story expansion in the time since, it doesn't seem like it's the end of the line quite yet. "Stay tuned to see what's next for MK11 this week," Boon writes, adding the hashtag "#KombatKontinues."
What's next could, honestly, be anything. Without too many spoilers, Mortal Kombat 11 was the conclusion of the rebooted Mortal Kombat trilogy that started with MK9. It was also the culmination of NetherRealm's work to bolster story and cinematics in games—and it ended on a pretty open world of possibilities.
There are still the events of the Aftermath DLC to consider, as it has some potential ramifications. Judging from online chatter, most fans are expecting some more characters, which makes the most sense. There are some fan-favorites who have yet to secure a spot on MK11's roster (looking at you, Mileena) and it'd be nice to see them return. With the addition of Friendships and other DLC, more fighters would be a good time.
We'll find out more as Boon and the studio announce it. At least, in a year that's been surprisingly quiet on the fighting game front, there will still be some Mortal Kombat to keep us going.
