Job Listing Hints At Next-Gen Plans For Mortal Kombat And Injustice

According to a recent job listing posted on the WB Games careers site, developer NetherRealm is seeking a Principal Software Engineer to "drive the next generation console graphics vision for the Mortal Kombat and Injustice franchises."

The job listing, which was posted back on June 4th but was only recently discovered by TheGamePost, explains that the successful applicant will be working on both the Xbox Series X and PS5:

As a Principal Graphics Engineer you will work closely with the Lead Engineer and the rest of your peers to develop state-of-the-art graphics technology for the PS5, and XBOX Series X.

Nothing is mentioned in the listing as to whether these will be entirely new games in both franchises, or whether they simply relate to enhanced ports for Mortal Kombat 11 and Injustice 2. And given that this project is still in the hiring stage, we ultimately might not know the answer for some time.

Do you think this relates to entirely new Mortal Kombat and Injustice games? Share your thoughts below.
