Mortal Kombat 11 will not receive any more DLC, NetherRealm says

NetherRealm Studios announced on Twitter that it is no longer creating new DLC for Mortal Kombat 11. The studio will now focus on creating an entirely new project after supporting Mortal Kombat 11 with new content for about two years.

Mortal Kombat 11 was released in 2019 and has seen a rather healthy stream of DLC that added 12 new characters to the roster, which increased the total number of fighters in the game to 35. Many DLC characters, such as Fujin and Mileena, were characters from previous Mortal Kombat titles. However, NetherRealm Studios added five guest characters from different franchises: Spawn, Robocop, Rambo, Terminator, and The Joker from the DC comics appeared in the game as guest DLC.

Interestingly, the tweet did not indicate that it will cease support for the game in terms of patches, balancing, or ladder updates. With that in mind, there is a possibility that NetherRealm will still have an active hand in the life of Mortal Kombat 11. However, it will no longer add new content to the game.

For players who are interested in getting the full experience of Mortal Kombat 11, NetherRealm Studios released Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate in November. This ultimate edition includes all of the game’s story and character DLC content, in addition to costume DLC like the “Klassic MK Movie” skins that made certain characters resemble their 1995 movie counterparts.

Mortal Kombat 11 is bringing in 80s film icon RoboCop for its upcoming Aftermath expansion that will add an epilogue to its story.

While Mortal Kombat is no stranger to post-launch support, Aftermath marks the first DLC to include story elements. Launching May 26, the expansion will feature two returning characters in the god of wind Fujin and Sheeva, a half-dragon and half-human who first appeared in Mortal Kombat 3. Those two fighters will be in the new cinematic story that sees Liu Kang team up with an old foe in Shang Tsung. It's unknown if RoboCop, who is voiced by actor Peter Weller, will have an actual role or if he will just be a bonus character. Three skin packs are also included in Aftermath, which will cost $40.
