We're Getting An Injustice Sequel Next Year

Yesterday's retail leak becomes today's confirmation, as Warner Bros. officially announces Injustice 2. coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in 2017.

The second instalment of the DC brawler picks up where the first left off. Batman and his super friends are trying to rebuild society in the wake of Superman's madness, while others attempt to rebuild the Man of Steel's regime.

"In Injustice 2, we are introducing new features that will change the way fans play fighting games," said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios via official announcement. "We're always interested in pushing the genre forward and allowing players to customise and level-up their favourite DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains is a significant leap."

Customisation and levelling up would certainly explain the armour.

While the announcement trailer features returning characters, the announcement mentions at least two new characters joining the fray, Red Lantern leader Atrocitus and Flash's monkey nemesis, Gorilla Grodd.

    If Mike Fahey even watched the trailer he'd know there's a third new character. Just saying.

      Which one? Did I miss it? I only saw Bat/Super/Super-G/Flash and Aqua

        Supergirl's new to the franchise. On top of that the voice over (people are saying it's Bryan Cranston) drops some very big hints that he'll be playing Ra's Al Ghul.

          Derp. Of course, I was thinking of Bat Girl from the DLC, it's been a while!

          Thank you

    Nice, wonder who the MK cameo/s will be...

    Also hoping for Captain Cold and Heatwave this time... along with skins for Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller :D

      Considering the schematics for the Cold Gun in the opening credits, all signs point to yes.

    It's been years since I finished the first game, but wasn't Superman left de-powered at the end and locked in a jail?

    Is that Bryan Cranston doing the voice over?

    Anyways, really enjoyed the story and comic books from the first game... Not so much a fan of the fighting game genre itself though.

    Are there going to be any actual announcements left for next week?! E3's going to be a 5 days of people reminding us about that trailer we watched a week ago.

    Yay for Batman Beyond. Nay for it showing up like this.

    Injuustice was a suprise packet game for me, got it cheap for the hell of it and figured I would have the occasional game and work through it
    Ended up playing the full campaign and then some, was very enjoyable even though I suck

    Isn't the voice over James Spader (Ultron, Blacklist), that's who it sounds like to me.

    If you haven't been reading the Injustice comics (coming up on year 6 I think?) you should. They're easily the most fun and interesting DC books around, and tell some really great stories.
