The French website, Gameblog.fr, is reporting that a sequel to the 2013 DC Comics-based fighting video game, Injustice: Gods Among Us — developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment — is in the works and will be announced soon.
Their source claims Injustice: Gods Among Us 2 will be unveiled either in the coming days or just before E3, which starts June 14th in Los Angeles, California. It will reportedly use the same engine as Mortal Kombat X, arrive in stores March 2017, and only be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
2013's Injustice: Gods Among Us involved Superman becoming evil and setting up a totalitarian regime after The Joker tricked him into killing the love of his life, Lois Lane, and their unborn child. Batman assembled a team of superheroes — some from an alternate universe — to stop the High Councillor (a.k.a. the naughty Man of Steel). When it was released in April, it sold 424,000 copies in its first month. It received "Best Fighting Game of the Year" awards from IGN, GameTrailers, Game Informer, and VGX.
What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat? Injustice: Gods Among Us introduces a bold new franchise to the fighting game genre from NetherRealm Studios, creators of the definitive fighting game Mortal Kombat. Featuring DC Comics icons such Batman, Cyborg, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Solomon Grundy, Superman and Wonder Woman, the latest title from the award-winning studio presents a deep original story. Heroes and villains will engage in epic battles on a massive scale in a world where the line between good and evil has been blurred.
