The official announcement of “Mortal Kombat 12” is still a long time coming. As Ed Boon, one of the creative minds behind the Fighting franchise, hinted via Twitter, a well-known mode could be making a comeback in the series’ latest installment.
Ed Boon from NetherRealm Studios has answered selected questions from fans via Twitter over the past few days. Including the question of the next big title of the US studio.
The answer shouldn’t come as a surprise, as Boon indicated that either Mortal Kombat 12 or Injustice 3 will be coming next. Much more interesting is another tweet from Boon, which was actually about a remake of the fighting title “Mortal Kombat: Deception”, which was released in 2004 for the PlayStation 2, among other things.
Although Boon rejected a new edition of “Deception”, he pointed out that a “new Konquest would be much more realistic”. Any specific hint that Konquest mode might be making a comeback in Mortal Kombat 12?
What is Konquest mode all about?
Konquest Mode is a single-player story experience that debuted in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance and later returned in both Deception and Armageddon. Since then, the Konquest mode has almost completely disappeared from the scene and has been repeatedly requested by the community in the past. So it’s quite possible that the NetherRealm Studios will finally have an understanding with the followers and comply with this wish.
However, nothing has been officially confirmed in this regard. The same applies to the question of when “Mortal Kombat 12” will finally be announced or presented in detail. According to rumors over the past few months, Konquest mode may not be the only classic element of the Mortal Kombat series making a comeback in the next installment.

Instead, the usually well-informed industry insider “r00r” pointed out that an old acquaintance could return in Reiko. Mortal Kombat 12 is expected to be released for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
It remains to be seen whether the old PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles will also be supplied.
Not likely. More likely do a new Konquest.
