Rumor: Next three Mortal Kombat 11 DLC characters including an action movie hero from the 80s have been leaked according to data miner

The next three DLC characters coming to Mortal Kombat 11 have supposedly been found in the code thanks to the latest update that makes the All Hallow's Eve pack costumes for Sub-Zero, D'Vorah, and Johnny Cage.

Thethiny, best known for leaking RoboCop, Sheeva, and Fujin before they were announced for Aftermath, has posted screenshots of Mortal Kombat 11's code that appear to indicate the presence of three new characters. Once more, there is an action movie hero from the 80s among thethiny's leaks. Be advised that there are some potential spoilers beyond this point.

According to thethiny, data referencing Mileena, Rain, and John Rambo can now be found in Mortal Kombat 11's code. The data miner is also claiming that this pack is being referenced as the "GOTY2" pack.

Notably, the Aftermath characters — Fujin, Sheeva, and RoboCop — are declared to be part of the "GOTY" package. As a result, thethiny is speculating that there might also be a second story DLC similar to Aftermath.

Within the code, Rain is seemingly referred to as "CHAR_RAN" (since "RAI" is already taken by Raiden), Rambo is "CHAR_RAM," and Mileena is "CHAR_MIL." It is also claimed by thethiny that audio and gear are finished for all three characters. In addition, it appears that Rambo has access to more gear than any other character so far.

Some time ago, Ed Boon made a mysterious comment about how wrong leaks have the tendency to drown out the true ones which seemed to outright confirm that there was a real leak for Mortal Kombat 11 out there.

Looking back, it appears that there was a leak from four months back (days before Aftermath was released) that suggested that the next three characters would be Mileena, Rain, and Rambo. Dvdgamescenter on Reddit had also suggested that an additional story mode where Havik and Daegon play major roles was being worked on.

"I have a description of Aftermath 2.0," said Dvdgamescenter. "It will be [about] Havik and Daegon [stealing] the real Crown of Kronika. Havik gives it to Daegon because he can use it and reshape all of existence, ensuring Chaos. Elder Gods will save some characters from existence and use them to fight the Red Dragon: Quan Chi, Takeda, Shinnok, Taven, Reiko, and Mileena. Aftermath 2.0 comes in November."

"NetherRealm Studios has done work on Rain. Because of fan demand, he will be one of the DLC characters as well," continued Dvdgamescenter. "I believe Sareena will be the one to be cut from the final lineup, but I haven't gotten info on the last Kombat Pack changes yet. I know Mileena has been moved up, so the next three characters to be released are now Rambo, Mileena, and Rain, with Havik and Daegon pushed back to the third pack and the story mode."

It was previously reported by thethiny that there were still eight DLC character slots that could be filled in Mortal Kombat 11. Should Mileena, Rain, and Rambo be the next fighters then it means that there are still five more after them.

During the month of September, Ed Boon has been dropping hints for Mortal Kombat 11's next characters. Working backwards with Mileena, Rain, and Rambo in mind, thethiny believes that there is a connection to the hints.

The "Look Up To The Skies" clue was an obvious hint at Rain. The Nightmare on Elm Street hint could be looked at as a clue for Rambo. "Seriously #6" looks like a hint at Rain or Mileena. Finally, the six degrees comment appears to be a reference to Mileena's or Rain's colors.
