The Aftermath Edition update for Mortal Kombat 11 was recently released on May 26, 2020. Fujin, Sheeva and RoboCop were added as new playable characters as a result.
The latest version of the game gives a sense of finality to Mortal Kombat 1
Recently a computer scientist who goes by the name TheThiny claims that Kombat Pack 3 has been confirmed. When pressed for details, they simply stated that the files now say “Kombat Pack 3” while they used to say “Fighter Pack.” Details beyond this are scarce.
TheThiny was originally a data scientist who pointed out the existence of a character with inventory slots labeled as “ROB.” At that time, many speculated that these bins belonged to RoboCop.
Lo and behold, RoboCop can now be played in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath. Probably NetherRealm Studios has been interested in adding RoboCop to one of their games since Mortal Kombat 9.
Following the release of Spawn, TheThiny also reported that there are 11 sites that are not reported within the game’s code. Now that three of them are taken up by Fujin, Sheeva and RoboCop, it means that there are still eight more combatants who could potentially join the watch list.
This data scientist also seems to be adamant that Ash Williams of Army of Darkness was replaced by D.C.’s Joker. Signs seem to indicate that Ash Williams is a delayed rather than canceled.
Looking back, the email that “leaked” Ash Williams still seems pretty special.
Given that there is still a demand for fan for characters like Mileena, Reptile, Ermac and more, one can easily imagine how a Kombat Pack 3 would be successful. Of course, it is important to mitigate expectations with all uncontrolled rumors like these.
