NetherRealm Studios head Ed Boon has been teasing fans with cryptic clues for what lies ahead in Mortal Kombat 11. We haven't known exactly where the bread crumbs would take us, but we now have an estimated time of arrival for answers: later this week! Read on for details:

Boon updated Twitter followers while also celebrating a staggering 8 million copies of Mortal Kombat 11 sold! The massive figure presumably takes into account digital sales across all available hardware, demonstrating the broad platform that upcoming downloadable content will be made to sell to.

The success really comes as no surprise: MK11 was a dominant seller upon release. WB Interactive Entertainment President Matthew Haddad celebrated a record setting launch at GamesBeat Summit in April, 2019, also telling attendees there would be "years of content". Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath expanded the story and playable character roster earlier this year in May.

Boon's latest cryptic teasers began with Bohemian Rhapsody, moved to A Nightmare on Elm Street, then settled on Serious Six and Kobra.

As we learned along the way: some fans figured it out, but we won't have confirmation of who until all is revealed. Most MK Online users are expecting a new pack of DLC characters with 50% choosing Kombat Pack 2 in the current User Poll. 25% chose Rain as a specific frontrunner based on Boon's Klues.

Update 3:15 P.M. EDT: The official Mortal Kombat Twitter account has posted a short teaser giving confirmation that something, likely a trailer, is set to drop Thursday October 8th at 9 A.M. EDT/8 A.M. CDT. More on this story as it develops.
