IGN have reported yesterday that WB Games might split their studios due to a $43 billion merger deal between AT&T (who owns Warner Media and all of their daughter companies, including WB Games) and Discovery, for the plan to create a new, standalone company, after which some of the gaming studios of WB Games will stay with them, while the rest will go to the new company. This of course includes NetherRealm Studios, the creators of both the Mortal Kombat and Injustice franchises.

Stephen Totilo of IGN came with the this Tweet, while Julia Alexander then came in to correct some of the news on the matter.

Author's opinion: As everyone knows, NRS have been very quite in the last several months regarding any updates for Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate ever since the MK11U update came out with the exception of a couple of patches, including the one that we got just last week, and with the only new content that we got for MK11U is just the new Gear pieces that you can unlock in the 2nd rotation of the Kombat League seasons, but no new DLC updates with new characters or skins. This can very well be the reason for that, as obviously it would be very difficult for NRS to work on MK11U while they don't even know who will be their publishing bosses from now on.

That being said, I'm sure some of you are freaking out regarding the future of NRS and MK, but there's no need to worry. Mortal Kombat is a highly successful franchise, with MK11U also got over 8 million copies sold as of October of last year. There is no way that no one will be capitalizing on MK for it's guaranteed revenue. And everyone knows that no other company is better for making MK than NRS, so no one is gonna close them. Not to mention that NRS did tease new work just a few months ago, which can be a new update to MK11U.

So no one should be worried, NRS and MK are perfectly safe. Injustice, on the other hand, might be in a more questionable position though since it is a DC Universe franchise, which means it might be over due to the DC license being restricted between the studios after the deal, but we will have to wait and see for that one.
