Mortal Kombat 11 IMG

When any fighting game series is announced nowadays, a leak inevitably follows, often revealing information about the character roster or a surprise the developer intended to reveal later down the line. A lot of the time, these leaks can also turn out to be completely fake.

On the Mortal Kombat front, it's no different. Series co-creator Ed Boon has been dealing with this sort of stuff for years now. According to GoNintendo, there's a rumour the character roster for the recently revealed Mortal Kombat 11 has already been leaked. Sure, some of the characters on the list might show up in the game, but at this point in time there's no substantial evidence. To combat this, Ed called out the rumour and told the individual who informed him about it to bring up the same tweet after the real roster was revealed:

In a way, it's refreshing to see a response like this. Boon has basically knocked the wind out of this apparent leak and is having a laugh about it at the same time. Good job, Ed.
