Speculation: Injustice Sequel Announcement Imminent?

With the 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) right around the corner, speculation is mounting that NetherRealm Studios will announce their next game project very soon.

All expectations are Injustice: Gods Among Us will return for the first sequel to the DC Comics superhero fighting game. French site GameBlog.fr cites unnamed sources close to the imminent announcement, projecting an unverified 2017 release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The first Injustice: Gods Among Us was released this time, 2012, preceding its debut at the E3 of the same year [original story]. Emerging speculation places an announcement at the ESL Mortal Kombat X Season 3 finals, June 11th.

In their many incarnations, NetherRealm Studios has produced regular fighting game releases every two years. Since being purchased by Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment, we've seen Mortal Kombat (2011), Injustice: Gods Among Us (2013) and Mortal Kombat X (2015) released in April. A Gods Among Us sequel follows the increasing familiar pattern, even as Creative Director Ed Boon polls interest in more Mortal Kombat projects [full story].

In January, Mortal Kombat Online reported on NetherRealm Studios hiring for several key positions, speculating toward the Injustice sequel [full story]. This was quickly followed by an abrupt announcement for Mortal Kombat XL: the 2016 complete edition that incorporates NetherRealm's longest downloadable content cycle, including Kombat Pack 2. MKXL was released in March.

Further supporting expectations of an Injustice sequel is Warner Brothers' ambitious 2017 film slate, which sees the release of major movies based on Wonder Woman and the assembled Justice League. It's part of a cinematic universe plan initiated this year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Some fans have noted an Injustice-like quality to the "Knightmare" sequence in the film, which includes allusions to Superman as a totalitarian aggressor. Reporting the success of Mortal Kombat X and Batman: Arkham Knight; The Wall Street Journal mapped the emerging importance video game properties have as a compliment to Warners' traditional film business.

VG 24/7 notes the Gods Among Us sequel will likely be built using the Mortal Kombat X engine, which Injustice laid the groundwork for by introducing new concepts, such as stage interactions.

It is going to be Injustice 2 next from NRS - Rumor

http://www.vg247.com/2016/05/31/injustice-gods-among-us-2-to-be-unveiled-soon-out-march-2017-rumour/

So according to an article on vg247.com Injustice 2 is going to be the next game from NRS and it might get revealed during the MKX ESL pro league season 3 grand finals or even before that. I remember distinctly that Hitbox_Godspeed did mention of something special to be revealed at the grand finals that he cant talk about, so there's that as well.

And the article even mentions that Injustice 2 is being made on MKX engine and not on Unreal 4 or as would like it, on CryEngine... which seems kinda dissapointing to me. Other than that... HYPE

:)

Much as I love DC and liked Injustice, I'm "okay" towards the announcement. Frankly I'm surprised it's that far out - they've been working on it since late 2014.

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

I'm excited to see what they do with the sequel. Lighten up on those 50/50's and the insane pressure, make zoning and anti-air mean something again, and I dare say this could be great.

And Swamp Thing. Do it.

I'd rather they do more MK. Not that i didn't like Injustice, or even MKvsDC, but i don't want this to interfere with the MK dev cycle. The gap between MK9 & MKX was excruciating.

Yeah I am not as excited for this as I was MKX but ill probably get it to support NRS.

I just hope we get Starfire, Darkseid and Spawn as a guest character. Those will be my 3 main characters if we do lol

Lastly, I hope they just release a season pass this time. You know, a pack that includes ALL dlc stuff to come out after the games release, not just the characters and certain costumes. All of it. It makes things so much simpler.

I hope the PC version gets 0 sales after continuously fucking over PC gamer. Especially after MKX.

Unlike other people, I am surprisingly indifferent about the lack of a KP2 release on PC. Using Bo' Rai Cho and Leatherface would have been nice but it is not that big of a loss for me. Missed out on Triborg's variations: Cyrax, Smoke and Cyber SZ, nothing I can not deal with, even though I like those characters.

I find that I am still hung up on the annoying concept of the alien more so than anything else.

A KP3 would make me share in the outrage, now that I think about it; look at all these cool characters that I will not get to play and since they are within MKX's KP3, their chances for a roster inclusion in the next MK game is reduced significantly.

... here's your Subzero, now plain zero.

I'm not even talking about KP2. The PC version was terrible and after months of promising to fix it they abandoned it. This isn't their first time with having problems with PC versions.

I agree, we all know NetherRealm's track record for the PC platform. They better improve to receive less backlash.

I'd love a new injustice, seems like the right time to announce it.
Please for the love of God can we have Poison Ivy this time?! That's all I ask.

Honestly I hope everybody returns and they add

Darksied
Poison Ivy
killer Croc
Gorilla Gold
Scarecrow
Black Manta
Static Shock

Basically more bad guys and 20+ arenas

I would really like Injustice to become Backwards Compatible for the Xbox One on the day of the announcement.

Kombat Pack #3 & #4 could come out to hold us over until March 2017 NRS could split there recourses to continue to support both games

RE: It is going to be Injustice 2 next from NRS - Rumor

Fuck no I'm not excited for a sequel to Injustice. Netherrealm is working their way on my shit list next to the likes of Trion and Sega. First, my favorite fighters aren't playable in MKX, then the piss poor PC version, and then they decide not to release any more content for it.

I have an Xbone, but I will never buy a 3rd party game for a console when I can play it in 4k/60 fps on my PC.

The only good thing I can see coming from Netherrealm is if they announce a Shaolin Monks sequel or another MK game.

Guys thee only thing NRS had to do with the PC version was they chose a poor dev to port it. Aim your blame at High Voltage for being incompetent if you wanna rage.

Also please stop saying they "promised" if they never promised. For cryin' out loud.

Don't cars much for an Injustice sequel. I never liked the story of the original nor the gameplay.

Dude you can't expect them to include your favorite characters in every game when there is a roster limit...

NRS are still to blame. As you said they chose those developers and have continually brought out inferior PC ports of their games.

If this was the first time it happened I would have given NRS the benefit of the doubt, but when it keeps happening then Boon and co are either stupid or incompetent [I'm going with both] to keep letting these things happen.

Why couldn't this ending have happened?

Actually they did. If you say you will do something, that is a promise. If you fail to deliver on that intent, that is a broken promise.

There are things they said they would do and did not. I'm not going to get into the whole rant again, because I've said everything all before many times. We all know what i'm talking about.

I know that. The fighters I'm referring to are Jade, Smoke, Cyrax, Sektor, Stryker, Noob, and Rain. I can understand if some of them are left out, but holy fuck, THEY'RE ALL LEFT OUT! Tri-borg doesn't count. Don't get me started on that half-assed mess of a character.
