Mortal Kombat 11 has been dominating as one of 2019's highlights in the fighting game genre - and will continue to, according to the Mortal Kombat series' co-founder Ed Boon.
Between regular broadcasted championships and a roster updated with the likes of the Terminator, it appears the game's traction isn't stopping. On Twitter, user Just UltraDavid praised Mortal Kombat 11 and its developer NetherRealm Studios for the game's impressive engine and superior balance to previous games in the series. Their only complaint involved the lack of diversity in character archetype.
In response, Boon implied that this issue might be fixed in the future. He commented with the following:
Would love an opportunity to hear more of your thoughts on this. We plan to continue adding to, updating and overall improving on MK11 for a looong time to come and your suggestions would be most appreciated. 👍🏻👍🏻 https://t.co/j4HzbLWhqK— Ed Boon (@noobde) November 17, 2019
"Would love an opportunity to hear more of your thoughts on this," writes Boon. "We plan to continue adding to, updating and overall improving on MK11 for a looong time to come and your suggestions would be most appreciated."
This tweet indicates that NetherRealm Studios is aware of fan perceptions of the game. Furthermore, it seems the developer is dedicated to improving the experience of Mortal Kombat 11 players for at least the next year or so. As Mortal Kombat 11 has been widely received as one of the best Mortal Kombat iterations thus far, and as there is still planned DLC for the future, it would make sense for NetherRealm Studios to continue to dedicate its time to crafting the best Mortal Kombat experience.
Previously, Boon had also said that Mortal Kombat 11 is "the end of the story." This could be interpreted in several ways. Perhaps Mortal Kombat 11 is simply the last Mortal Kombat title. If so, Boon's comments on Twitter about NetherRealm Studios' dedication to regularly updating Mortal Kombat follow, even if this is sad for some Mortal Kombat players.
However, Boon's "end of the story" statement could also mean that we're reaching the conclusion of Mortal Kombat. However, between Sindel's upcoming arrival and others, it is an unlikely scenario that development on Mortal Kombat 11 is coming to a close.
Regardless, as Boon suggests, Mortal Kombat 11 players should keep throwing comments his way about what they think can be improved in the game. As indicated by his tweet, any comments will likely be taken into consideration, so any and all opinions should be voiced for the betterment of the game.
