Creator / Netherrealm Studios
NetherRealm Studios is an American video game developer based in Chicago.

After Midway filed for bankruptcy, its assets for Midway Games Chicago were purchased by Warner Bros. After a brief spell under the name WB Games Chicago, this newly owned property would eventually become NetherRealm Studios in 2010. The studio comprises many Mortal Kombat veterans and is led by the series' co-creator Ed Boon.

The studio's first outing, Mortal Kombat 9 in 2011, a reboot of the Mortal Kombat franchise, marked a return to form for the series that was praised by critics and fans alike. Boon expressed NetherRealm's desire not only to develop future Mortal Kombat titles, but also to branch out into new franchises. Their next effort was Injustice: Gods Among Us, a fighting game starring DC characters, and as with MK9, was both a critical and commercial smash. Their next major release is Mortal Kombat X, which continues the story line 25 years past the events of 9 and their first offering for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In 2015, they also released WWE Immortals, a fantastical WWE fighting game for mobile devices that shares game mechanics as the Injustice mobile offering.
