Mortal Kombat 11's first year of content wrapped up well over a month ago with the release of Spawn to close out the Kombat Pack for the game, and now it appears like we know when we'll learn more about what's next — and it's soon.

NetherRealm Studios released a new teaser trailer this morning for what appears to be the next chapter in MK11's story with a larger reveal coming tomorrow May 6.

The teaser picks up essentially at the end of MK11's Story Mode with fire god Liu Kang and Raiden preparing to rewrite the series' timeline before being interrupted by three silhouettes walking out of the portal.

One voice pleads for Liu Kang to stop before he dooms them all which Raiden points to being none other than Shang Tsung though the other two remain shrouded in the shadows.

All that's left to go on is text stating "the epic saga continues" with a reveal date set by NRS for tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. PT / 9 a.m. ET.

No other details have been released to clue us in on what we should be expecting from the developers and the second year of content, but it may likely be tied to the previously-leaked Aftermath Kollection for Mortal Kombat 11.

Judging by the teaser itself, MK11 may also be receiving something along the lines of new story mode chapters building on top of the world post Kronika's defeat and the rise of Liu Kang as a new god of Earthrealm.

This would also mark the first time NRS or pretty much any modern fighting game developer went back to add expanded, cinematic story content post-release though the scenes could simply be made for the trailer itself.

Tomorrow may also serve as the gateway into the Kombat Pack volume 2 that players have been expecting pretty much since the game came out considering there were characters data-mined from Mortal Kombat 11's files which still have yet to appear in the game proper.

Series co-creator Ed Boon also recently spoke to Gamespot about MK11's future, and while he didn't get into any specifics, he did say his team is "not absolutely done with" MK11 yet.

An official email for Mortal Kombat sent out in March also appeared to leak the identity of a future DLC character for the game despite the actor behind said fighter denying those claims once again.

All we know for sure at this point is we'll be learning about the future of Mortal Kombat 11 in less than a day.
