Leaked database information for the Nvidia GeForce Now gaming service has reportedly exposed a raft of unannounced titles possibly destined for the cloud streaming platform. Among the major names being widely circulated are sequels to Injustice 2 and Mortal Kombat 11. Read on for details:
Improper API filtering appears to have contributed to a massive data-mining breach that exposed an alleged list of thousands of applications and game files, including listings for "Injustice 3: Gods Will Fall" and ambiguous entries of "Mortal Kombat Nex Gen" and "Mortal Kombat XII".
GeForce Now is a cloud based streaming service designed to facilitate gaming on multiple devices, including PC, Mac, iPhone, iPads and more. The concept is similar to Google Stadia, but uses direct access to a high-powered "virtual computer" to access and install games you already own from major digital distribution platforms, such as Steam, streaming from the cloud to play on the go.
ComicBook.com is among the high-profile sites reporting the rumored leak, which puts a name to the widely speculated Injustice sequel, but has anecdotally been described as database information that hasn't been updated for upwards of six months, and should not be considered confirmation of actual development.
Giant Bomb recently reported claims that NetherRealm Studios would instead be prioritizing a new installment in the Mortal Kombat franchise. This comes in response to the WarnerMedia Discovery corporate merger that has fuelled speculation about the future of NetherRealm and related properties.
Amid the speculated uncertainty: NetherRealm continues to list new positions via the WarnerMedia careers website, currently seeking a Senior Artist/Animator. This reflects a general sentiment that the formation of a new parent company would not effect NetherRealm's position within the AT&T-owned stable of WB Games. The developer was reportedly taken off the market this time last year, with only mobile developer Playdemic sold to EA.
