While all of the Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack season pass characters have been rolled out, the fight doesn't appear to be over for Warner Bros. and NetherRealm just yet. This morning, Warner Bros. announced that a second batch of new DLC characters are currently in development to hit the fighting game, with a broad release windows of "the first half of 2016."

This image began circulating yesterday, first on creator Ed Boon's Twitter account.

No word, or even hint, on who these four new kombatants could be, but there's a lot of time between now and the first half of 2016. Still more time to get Shacknews' original wishlist characters on the roster. New content will also include additional skins and a new environment. No word on whether a second Kombat Pack will be announced.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
