Injustice 2 Tops 2017 Q2 Video Game Gross

According to parent company Time Warner: Injustice 2 is the highest grossing video game of the 2017 second quarter! The report takes into account business from April to June, with Injustice 2 only released mid-May.

Time Warner proclaimed their gaming success as part of a mid-year report of financial earnings, touting their DC Comics properties as power players in multiple media arenas. Injustice character Wonder Woman also conquered the box office, grossing an approximate $800 million worldwide, at the time of report.

It's a customary celebration of success for a NetherRealm Studios fighting game, but a noted drop-off from the highs of Mortal Kombat X in 2015, carefully contextualized by gross.

According to numbers reported by VGChartz; Injustice 2 sold an approximate 687,301 units in its first four weeks of release. That's just over half (51.2%) of what Mortal Kombat X achieved in the same amount of time.

Rival fighting game Tekken 7 was released to home consoles two weeks after Injustice 2 (June 2nd), and although it trailed Q2 sales, it was outpacing the DC fighter with 606,624 units as of June 10th. That's just 80k fewer units in half the time.

Injustice 2 continues to generate revenue for Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment through a relaunched mobile game, and continued sales of downloadable content. Fighter Pack 1 will conclude later this month with the release of Starfire, with more DLC characters on the horizon [full story].
