Quan Chi, a renowned necromancer, is set to be Mortal Kombat 1's next DLC fighter, leakers would suggest. Here's everything we know thus far about Quan Chi coming to Mortal Kombat 1, including his ability, and when players can expect for him to be available in the game.

When Is Quan Chi Coming To Mortal Kombat 1

At the time of writing, NetherRealm has not specified the official release date for Quan Chi - however, the developer has provided fans with a general launch window for the DLC fighter, who is scheduled to arrive in "Winter 2023/2024".

This means that players likely won't have to wait long to play as Quan Chi, as the DLC will likely be available within the next month or two. For those unaware, Winter takes place between December 1, 2023 and Thursday, February 2, 2024.

Although Peacemaker is also listed as "Winter 2023/2024", data miners have suggested that Quan Chi is the next character to join the game; with leaker Interloko also suggesting he could be released "around Christmas".

Leaker Interloko announced that Quan Chi is coming to Mortal Kombat 1 in an upcoming DLC on X/Twitter, and delved a bit into his abilities and moves. He listed numerous strings of his moves, as you can see just below:

As InterLoko notes, it's unclear as to whether the "Self Harm" move is a move that affects Quan Chi or his opponents. It might just also be an effect of one of his other moves, they suggested.
