A promotional poster being sent out to GameStop stores has confirmed Injustice 2 is coming soon. The poster shows Batman squaring off The Flash, and features the Injustice 2 logo and the tagline “Every Battle Defines You.”
According to Polygon, the posters are being sent to GameStop stores as a free giveaway to customers who pre-order Injustice 2. The game hasn’t been officially announced yet, but the reveal is expected to come at next week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. There’s been no officially confirmation of which console systems the game will be released for, but Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are expected.
The original Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game developed by NetherRealm Studios, the studio behind the Mortal Kombat franchise, and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The game was released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, PC, Wii U and Xbox 360. There was also a mobile edition for Android and iOS.
Injustice featured DC Comics heroes and villains and a storyline involving a Superman who became a global dictator after the Joker murdered Lois Lane. That story has been further developed in a series of Injustice digital prequel comics released by DC Entertainment. In 2013, the game was re-released as an Ultimate Edition with all of the release downloadable content included. The full roster of playable characters included Aquaman, Ares, Bane, Doomsday, Flash, Green Arrow, Harley Quinn, Hawkgirl, Joker, Lex Luthor, Nightwing, Raven, Sinestro, Solomon Grundy, Superman, Batman, Black Adam, Catwoman, Cyborg, Deathstroke, Green Lantern, Killer Frost, Shazam, and Wonder Woman.
Expect more details about Injustice 2, and possibly a reveal trailer, in the next week or so.
