Rumor: Mortal Kombat Trilogy Being Remastered

Rumor: Mortal Kombat Trilogy Being Remastered

Last week, during The Game Awards 2018, NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boone took to the stage to confirm that the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat 11 was officially in production, with its release date currently scheduled for April of next year. While fans of the long-running fighting game franchise were understandably excited to learn of the next sequel’s existence, many still are holding out hope for updated versions of older entries in the series. Should recent rumors and speculation be believed, then we could very well see that happen.

As seen in the video below, the YouTuber Doctre81 makes a compelling case that Mortal Kombat Trilogy could be receiving a remastered edition at some point in the future, and that it will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One. Starting with the evidence that Blind Squirrel Games is working on an “unannounced fighting game remaster” of “three fighting games” from the 1990s, Doctre81 speculates that the project could be Mortal Kombat Trilogy.

From there, Doctre81 points to a description of work done on the Blind Squirrel Games project in question, as it contains a “progression system tying together 3 separate titles into one meta-experience”, alluding that game is a trilogy. Additionally, the listing shows that level design and gameplay scripting has been done in Unreal Engine 4.

Most interesting of all, though, it appears as if extra work such as “documentation and creative writing for back story and environment descriptions for levels” has been done for the project. That said, this supposed Mortal Kombat Trilogy remaster may even contain remake elements, too–that is, if it even does exist.

Taking this rumor into consideration, with Blind Squirrel Games having yet to officially announce as much, there’s no way for fans to definitively know if Mortal Kombat Trilogy is indeed the fighting game remaster being referenced above. Should that be the case, however, players may want to approach the product with caution if it ever comes to fruition. After all, Blind Squirrel is the company behind such releases as BioShock: The Collection, which launched with myriad problems on PC.

The rumored Mortal Kombat Trilogy remaster has not been confirmed.
