In a tweet by voice actor Eduardo Garza (via Critical Hit), it seems that Mortal Kombat 11 (or XI, if you prefer), he confirmed that there is a Mortal Kombat 11 in the works. His tweet (translated from Spanish) reads, “Well finally I confirm that the “professionals” of @ PINKNOISEloc decided to remove my characters from # MortalKombatXI . How sad that a company that wanted a lot ends up making decisions that affect both you, the consumers. Goodbye Kung Lao and Reptile.”
Based on this, it seems that the upcoming game could see the removal of two iconic Mortal Kombat characters. It is unclear as to why NetherRealm decided to remove both characters (maybe they aren’t played as much), but since the game has yet to be officially confirmed, we’ll have to take this tweet with a grain of salt for now.
Pues finalmente confirmo que los “profesionales” de @PINKNOISEloc decidieron quitarme mis personajes de #MortalKombatXI. Que triste que una empresa que quise mucho termine tomando decisiones que los afectan tanto a ustedes, los consumidores. Adiós Kung Lao y Reptile.

As to when the game will be announced, Critical Hit seems to believe that an announcement at the Game Awards 2018 could be a possibility. That is pretty much the only major gaming event left for 2018, so we suppose it does seem like a good platform to make an announcement, but once again this is just speculation so don’t get your hopes up just yet.
