After Ed Boon teased a pending announcement at exactly 7 a.m. Pacific Time, it was made official that Mortal Kombat X will include Quan Chi as a playable character.
As Executive Producer Shaun Himmerick explained, Quan Chi has three variations, including a summoner form in which he can call upon a beast of the NetherRealm to fight with him. This is an interesting Quan Chi mechanic that hasn’t been used in previous games.
Earlier in the week, this was retweeted by NetherRealm studios, giving some validity to this tease (as opposed to Boons’ others). In hindsight, this appears to be Quan Chi.
