What you need to know
- Mortal Kombat 11 could be headed to Xbox Game Pass, according to a new Instagram post from the gaming subscription service.
- The latest in the Mortal Kombat fighting series launched in 2019, available on Xbox One consoles, with an Xbox Series X|S upgrade also available for no extra cost.
Microsoft is slated to host its 20th anniversary Xbox stream on Monday, providing a reel of new announcements marking two decades for its console family. It's set to surface a number of surprises, including the rumored early release of Halo Infinite's mutliplayer, with more Xbox Game Pass announcements seemingly on the docket.
Given the timing, it's not unreasonable to assume Mortal Kombat 11's Xbox Game Pass debut sits ahead. Mortal Kombat 11 is the latest entry in the fighting series, released in 2019, and continues the story after the events of 2015's Mortal Kombat X. It introduced a robust cast of DLC characters this time around, particularly from the 1980s. Iconic characters such as Rambo, Robocop, The Terminator, and The Joker joined the ranks of the Kombat Pass, making for a truly memorable cast in the series.
While we don't have official confirmation yet from Microsoft or NetheRealm Studios about its Xbox Game Pass release, we recommend keeping an eye on the upcoming stream for more what's to come.

This and Injustice 2. Such amazing, story driven fighting games.
Bears keeping an eye out, given the financial goings on at AT&T and WBDISCOVERY.
Wouldn't put it past the XBOX gang to do a "one more thing".
