Ed Boon gave a soft confirm for MK11 back when he was interviewed in an event in Brazil a little after Injustice 2 DLC was done. He was asked if MK11 was on the horizon and his answer was something along the lines of “we’ve had MK9, Injustice, MKX and Injustice 2. Based on the pattern, you could probably guess what’s happening next.”
Or something along those lines.
Obviously plans can change, priorities can shift, etc. But MK is a substantial money maker and if anything, it seems to be on the rise again since the move to WB and MK9, so it’d be pretty surprising if they came out and said “surprise! Here’s MK vs DC “ or even Shaolin Monks 2 for that matter.
We’ll see. I’d love it if we finally got a reveal / tease at The Game Awards in December. They’ve been so quiet, which is amazing given how far past their usual announce time they are. Who knows, maybe it’s a much bigger project this time around? Maybe this story mode is far bigger than anything they’ve undertaken and that’s what’s slowing things down? Maybe they’re just trying to shorten the lead-in time to their normal release schedule?
Anyways, as for Injustice 3 (aka the actual topic), I know this won’t be popular, but I’d love to see a game set entirely in the Batman / Gotham universe. All allies and enemies of Batman, with a dark, massive story told from multiple angles.
I’d like a roster consisting of:
Ra’s Al Ghul
Talia Al Ghul
The Court of Owls
They could even throw some of the real randos in there and really shine them up the way Rocksteady did with some of the lesser known characters.
As far as the plot, I could see a cool take on the war of jokes and riddles where villains are forced to take sides in an all out war and Batman’s more or less caught in the middle, with other characters specifically targeting him or other villains and they have their own motivations, etc.
