Recent social media activity from Johnny Cage actor Andrew Bowen adds fuel to the fire that a new Mortal Kombat game is in development.
Rumblings about the next mainline Mortal Kombat entry have inundated the web for a year or so now. The speculation began with rumors that MK12 would launch before Injustice 3 because of WB Games’ uncertain future.
While job listings and an array of uncorroborated leaks hint that developer NetherRealm Studios has its hands full with Mortal Kombat’s next chapter, details about the team’s new project remain under lock and key.
Now yet another clue has begun making the rounds, stirring up hopes of MK’s imminent return.
Johnny Cage actor seemingly shares a Mortal Kombat tease
Andrew Bowen, the actor played Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat X and MK12, recently posted a video of himself on the Warner Bros. Studios lot.
Of course, Bowen could be visiting WB for any number of reasons but the background music he plays in the video could add further credence to the long-running MK12 rumors.

The music in question is a six-second snippet from Mortal Kombat 2’s original soundtrack. Voice over from the OST is heard in Bowen’s video, as well: “Every deadly technique. It’s savage combat.”

Naturally, fans can’t help but think the Johnny Cage actor’s post serves as another hint at the existence of Mortal Kombat 12.
Following a brief hiatus and the development crew’s split from publisher Midway Games, Mortal Kombat returned in 2011 with MK9.
The reboot’s success set the stage for the franchise to rise to the top once more. As a whole, the brand has sold more than 73 million units worldwide.
