Sony is hosting a PlayStation live show at Evo 2022 and although the company has promised “exciting content and reveals” from multiple developers and publishers, Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has quashed speculations of a Mortal Kombat 12 reveal. Bummer! Fans got their hopes up after seeing Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate in the event’s lineup and assumed Sony will show off the next entry in the franchise since parent company Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is one of the studios teasing a surprise, but Boon was quick to put a damper on that.
