Mortal Kombat 11 Ash Fighter May Have Been Leaked in the Silliest Way

There have been rumors of a Mortal Kombat 11 Ash character for a while now. The hero of The Evil Dead franchise has made his debut in Dead By Daylight and is coming to his very own game sometime soon, but a silly mistake may have revealed that he'll soon be joining the roster of Mortal Kombat fighters.

An e-mail campaign for the debut of Spawn in Mortal Kombat 11 may have tipped Warner Bros.' hand. @TacoFGC on Twitter spotted a bit of legalese at the end that was wholly unrelated to the information presented in the e-mail:

"ASH" character from "ARMY OF DARKNESS" is licensed from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. ARMY OF DARKNESS TM & © 1993 Orion Pictures Corporation. © 2019 year of development-distribution. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. All Rights Reserved.

The copyright disclosure was included alongside similar disclosures for Spawn and Joker (Batman, not Persona) as both of those characters are included in the game. As far as we know, this is the first hint of any kind of official confirmation of a Mortal Kombat 11 Ash character, although there still has not yet been any sort of big reveal.

When Will the Mortal Kombat 11 Ash Fighter Launch?

Now that we have a little more evidence that Ash is coming to Mortal Kombat 11, when will he be joining the roster? We can't say for sure, but we can look at past guest character releases to make a pretty good guess.

The Joker was launched in late January 2020. Spawn, meanwhile, is being made available in late March 2020. If Ash is indeed the next character to join Mortal Kombat 11, then we will probably see him arrive sometime in late May or early June 2020.
