Johhny Cage voice actor Andrew Bowen has potentially teased the announcement of a new Mortal Kombat video game. 

Taking to Twitter (opens in new tab), Bowen shared a clip of himself outside the Warner Bros. Studio in Burbank, California with some music playing over the top that sounds similar to Mortal Kombat II's soundtrack with the words "combat" then referenced.  

The Mortal Kombat franchise is one of the most popular and best-selling franchises in video game history with sales of over 70 million units. The latest game in the series, Mortal Kombat 11, launched in April 2019, before going on to generate over 12 million copies worldwide.

"Every deadly technique. It's savage combat," is heard over the video before the camera turns to Bowen who produces a cheeky smile. 

As mentioned, Mortal Kombat 11 was the most recent game to be released by maker NetherRealm Studios (owned by Warner Bros.) back in 2019. The developer also works on the Injustice series with Injustice 2 launching in 2017, leading many people to believe Injustice 3 will the next release from the studio. 

That said, a report from journalist Jeff Grubb (opens in new tab) suggested that NetherRealm is actually focusing on Mortal Kombat 12, which would tie in with this video from Bowen. Hopefully, we'll find out somethi{"data-model-name":"Sony PlayStation 5","data-widget-type":"review"}ng more concrete in the coming month.

Mortal Kombat 11 is available across PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Windows. 

One crossover fans will be hoping to see will be Buffy the Vampire Slayer entering the world of Mortal Kombat, after NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon revealed that conversations had taken place to get the beloved character into the game.
