NetherRealm is hiring for next-gen Mortal Kombat and Injustice instalments
Developer intends to deliver “state-of-the-art graphics technology”
WB Games’ NetherRealm Studios is hiring for next-gen instalments of its fighting games Mortal Kombat and Injustice.
The firm’s latest job ad, as reported by Wccftech, is seeking a graphics engineer “to drive the next generation console graphics vision for the Mortal Kombat and Injustice franchises.”
The job ad goes on to state that the Chicago-based developer intends to deliver “state-of-the-art graphics technology for the PS5 and Xbox Series X”.
NetherRealm released its most recent title Mortal Kombat 11 in March 2019, followed by a $40 story expansion this month.
Meanwhile Injustice – its fighting series based on DC superheroes – hasn’t seen a release since 2017’s sequel. NetherRealm has typically alternated between Injustice and Mortal Kombat.
Warner Bros. announced this week that it would hold a DC-focussed digital event, ‘DC FanDome’, in August and make new announcements from its games, film and TV, and comics divisions.
Before E3 2020’s cancellation, WB Games was reportedly lining up a trio of high-profile reveals for what would have been its first-ever LA show conference this month.
These are said to have included a new Batman title, an open-world Harry Potter game, and the next project from Batman Arkham developer Rocksteady Studios.
