NetherRealm boss Ed Boon, who co-created the Mortal Kombat and Injustice game franchises, will attend this month’s DC FanDome event. This development has sparked unfounded rumors that the studio might have something lined up for the showcase. If that is the case, don’t get your hopes up for Injustice 3, one reporter says.
The lineup of attendees for FanDome was announced on Monday, and Boon’s name is featured among the many, many other attendees. These include Sefton Hill, the game director of Rocksteady’s upcoming Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and Patrick Redding, the director of Gotham Knights. Both games are confirmed to appear during DC FanDome, but as of yet, no project directly connected to Boon or NetherRealm is.

NetherRealm’s latest game was 2019’s Mortal Kombat 11, which sold more than 12 million copies. Fans have been waiting for NetherRealm to return to the Injustice series, which hasn’t seen a new release since 2017’s Injustice 2, but reporter Jeff Grubb believes the current focus at the studio is on the rumored Mortal Kombat 12 instead.
