Injustice 2 is coming to PS4 in 2017

NetherRealm unveils its ambitious sequel to the 2013 fighting game

We are super excited to announce the latest instalment of the Injustice franchise, Injustice 2, coming to PlayStation 4 in 2017. As the sequel to 2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us, we wanted to come out swinging. We’re doing all of the things you’d expect from a sequel. We’re adding new characters, new environments, and we’re taking environment destruction and interaction to the next level.

But we didn’t want to stop there. At NetherRealm, we always want to make games that are fun, challenging and innovative. We strive to give players a level of control that makes playing our games a truly personal experience. For that reason, we have introduced a brand new Gear System, allowing players to build their own version of Superman, their Batman and ultimately, their Injustice Universe.

The Gear System uses RPG-like mechanics to reward you with loot drops every time you play the game. With each loot drop, you will earn character-specific gear to outfit and power up your roster – changing not only the look of each character, but your fight strategy and your personal approach to every match.

As you gear up your characters, you’re building a roster of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains that reflects your choices, and your preferences, which can be vastly different than your opponents. A few play sessions in, you can expect your Aquaman to look and play different than anyone else’s Aquaman you may come across.

And of course we’re going to continue to tell the epic story of the Injustice Universe. When last we saw them, Superman was imprisoned in a Red Sun prison cell, while Batman was continuing the good fight against the forces that would see Superman’s tyranny back in power. Where do we go from here? And what new characters will join the fight? Of course you’ll have to play the game to find out. And we can’t wait for you to get your hands on this game. We’re excited to see your vision come to life on screen.

Stay tuned! We’ll continue to drop information as we lead up to our launch in 2017.

Day ZERO. Loved the first one, and didn’t even have any hope for a sequel. Now, this is a dream that just became true. Cannot FREAKING wait!!!

Which character do you want in game that did not make it in last time?


Well, we know that Supergirl will be playable, at least. Who else? Let’s see… Atrocitus would be cool. Starfire too, I think. Metallo, Bizarro, Captain Atom, Plastic Man…

Dr Manhattan would be cool.


As long as that awful metalhead dude is gone, I’m good. His name escapes me ‘cus my brain cells melt when I look at him.

we all know Batman wins that fight.

Glad to see this getting a sequel. As weird as it sounds I do hope you manage to nail yet another good story. You seem to be the only company that can make fighting games with a good story mode. Also, please make sure you have a better netcode this time around.


Would be cool to have Mr Freeze as a playable character.

The gear system sounds interesting, but it does introduce the danger of an “ultimate build”. Curious to see more.

Holy crap!
Is that Bryan Cranston doing the VO?

“The Gear System uses RPG-like mechanics to reward you with loot drops every time you play the game”

I smell Microtransactions

Awesome! If none of you are aware, Gorilla Grodd and Atrocitus have been confirmed as playable characters :O

mortal kombat, injustice, mortal kombat, injustice, mortal komat etc. is that all your studio will be doing for the rest of time? how about a new IP instead of the same rehashed franchises over and over again.

They’ve made one Injustice game and you’re somehow complaining about repetition? Go whine at Ubisoft or something.


Suicide squad exclusive DLC.

noodleboy1972 08 June, 2016 @ 16:49

Watchmen DLC would be cool

Can’t wait. Love Supergirl, she’s legit one of my faves. So glad she’s joining the fight. =D

The Injustice comic series has been fantastic too, BY FAR some of the best comics I’ve read in recent years. Consider me a happy DC fanboy. =)


So a loot based fighter? So are we talking grindfest for good gear or will certain achievements unlock certain drops.

Reading this post, I get a lot of microtransactions flags and thats a big negative. I dont like the idea of the loot system, its gonna unbalence the game even more and injustice was already so unbalenced, its not even a good idea for a fighting game.
Bring us a GOOD netcode from the start and NO REGION BLOCK, if you dont do this i wont even consider to get the game on sale.
