The trail began on Reddit Wednesday when a user shared a photo of what looks like a possible promotional poster for what could be Mortal Kombat 10. It shows the bones of a spine with the Mortal Kombat logo on the bottom above the words “Who’s Next?”

Ed Boon, co-creator of Mortal Kombat, has also been dropping hints of a possible new installment on Twitter. His tweets seem to to be a countdown that ends on June 2 and he changed his profile picture to the recognizable logo.
