Recently announced was the latest installment in the Netherrealm Studios prized fighting franchise, Mortal Kombat 11. So far, there hasn’t been much revealed other than the gritty cinematic trailer shown at last week’s Game Awards show, but some interesting details seem to be uncovering themselves about the upcoming fighting game.

In a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) post starring Venom co-creator and Spawn designer, Todd McFarlane, there was one question asked that seems to have stirred up some MK fans hopeful for more licensed character additions.

When asked if Todd would allow Spawn to appear in Ed Boon’s forthcoming Mortal Kombat 11, he replied: “I believe he’s on his way…”

While not an official confirmation of the antihero’s presence in the MK universe, it is rather intriguing as to what caused the iconic character designer to spill the beans so casually. Nothing has been officially confirmed as of now, but we’re sure to get some more details, including character roster and future DLC plans for MK11 within the next month.

With a release announced for April 23, 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch, there’s also an upcoming community reveal event that’s sure to unleash a plethora of details regarding the brutal fighting game. The reveal event is scheduled to take place on January 17, 2019 hosted by Netherrealm Studios.

Writer and avid gamer, Chris will put together an article to keep the reader engaged, informed and moderately happy for a solid 4 minutes. That my friend, is no easy feat.

To keep Apex Legends running for an additional “10 to 15 years,” Respawn opens a third studio

Apex Legends developer Respawn has created a third studio in order to keep the popular battle royale genre running for another “10 to 15 years”. Madison, Wisconsin is where the new studio is situated.

This third studio (the first two being headquartered in Los Angeles and Vancouver) will largely focus on Apex Legends in order to ensure a continuous and, most importantly, sustainable production pipeline. It may, however, contribute to other Respawn products in the future. Ryan Burnett, who previously served as director of engine production at Epic Games and had a distinguished 14-year career at Raven Software, the Call of Duty Studio, will serve as the studio’s head.

Senior VP of operations at Respawn, Daniel Suarez, claims in-depth in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz that “Because we intend to stick with this for the long haul, team health is unquestionably a top priority for us. We’re eager to see Apex become a franchise that endures for ten, fifteen, or more years because we think it will. We can’t just accomplish everything at once, exhaust ourselves, and be unprepared to do it over the long run.”

Consistency (as well as adequate production runway) are essential to make Apex Legends’ 90-day turnaround for new seasons of content realistic. Suarez observes that the introduction of new characters to the game takes a lot longer than you might anticipate “It takes us between a year and a year and a half to become proficient in a Legend. We are therefore making preparations well in advance.”

Only a few weeks ago, parent company EA fired more than 200 Apex Legends quality assurance testers in an impromptu Zoom call, raising concerns among some fans about the game’s future.

Do you support Respawn’s decision to open a third studio? Do you believe Apex Legends will still be around in 15 years?
