Who teases the teasers? Ed Boon has taken a shot at rampant false reporting of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath leaks, while also teasing the prospect of something legitimate coming soon from the developer. Read on for the full story:

The NetherRealm Studios Creative Director used Twitter to take aim at a YouTube video that claims to confirm a previously rumored guest character. The clip features an excerpt from a live chat with Raiden voice actor Richard Epcar, who casually acknowledges the inclusion of Ash Williams at the suggestion of a fan. In a follow-up tweet, Boon explicitly ruled this out as one of the wrong ones.

Rumors of an Evil Dead crossover first began with datamining of the game and were fuelled by a chainsaw buzz in teasers. Iconic actor Bruce Campbell denied his involvement with Mortal Kombat 11 way back in May of last year, but relevant copyright matter continued to appear in official material, suggesting the character was planned as downloadable content at some point. If this was the case, Richard Epcar may have even recorded an announcer voice for it.

It seems clear there's more to the Evil Dead story, but it'll be some time before we know it. When asked about the crossover in July, Boon evasively told Vic's Basement host Victor Lucas: "Ah! I wish... There's one I wish I could comment on. Uh, yeah. You know what? Perhaps in a future Vic's Basement we can have a conversation like that."

Although not much more informative, Boon did offer something more enticing earlier in the day, suggesting a teaser of some kind could be coming soon.

The studio recently teased upcoming All Hallow's Eve Skins, which have been brought forward for a late September release. This could mean the hotly speculated future for Mortal Kombat 11 downloadable content is back on track. Ed Boon also recently polled fans on their preferred finishers. It remains to be seen if anyting will come of it.
