Despite Omni-Man getting a detailed reveal trailer at New York Comic-Con a few weeks ago, NetherRealm has been surprisingly cagey about when Nolan, and the rest of the first Kombat Pack combatants are going to be arriving, only giving us vague release windows for most of them. As the first new character coming to the game, Omni-Man got the most concrete release window and was said to be coming at some point in November and, thanks to Xbox, we might have just found out exactly when.

Over on Twitter, reliable Mortal Kombat insider thethiny shared a screenshot of Mortal Kombat 1’s Xbox Store page via Twitter user LeftyNBC. Unsurprisingly for a store page, it offers players the choice to buy Kombat Pack 1 and notes that doing so will prepare you for the launch of Omni-Man, who Xbox claims is releasing in early access on November 6.

After taking a look at the Xbox Store, I can verify that Mortal Kombat 1’s store page does indeed say that Omni-Man is going to be releasing on November 6. NetherRealm and Warner Bros. haven’t yet confirmed the specific release date for when the Invincible star is going to be joining the game so, while it’s worth taking this with a grain of salt until it’s officially announced, that date is basically all but confirmed now.

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time that a November 6 release date for Omni-Man has been mentioned. As pointed out by thethiny in the Twitter thread, PlayStation Support was previously asked when each of the characters coming in Kombat Pack 1 are going to be released, and it mentioned that Omni-Man was planned for November 6.

Now, it’s not clear if both Xbox and PlayStation have just got it wrong, but it is interesting to note that they’ve both picked the same day in the same month, which lends some credence to it being true. For reference, PlayStation Support also said that Quan-Chi was coming December 18, followed by Peacemaker on February 4, Ermac on March 5, and Homelander on May 15. Then, rounding it all out is Takeda on July 1, which means Kombat Pack 1 will be staggered out for a little under a year.

Even if PlayStation Support has seemingly got one of the release dates right (if Xbox’s date turns out to be true, that is), we’ll have to wait until at least Quan-Chi’s release to see if that’s a trustworthy leak. For now, you can probably start getting excited for November 6.
