Injustice 2 Release Date Revealed [UPDATE]

Possibly coming to PS4 and Xbox One on May 16.

65 Comments

[UPDATE] Warner Bros. PR confirmed Injustice 2's release date to GameSpot. The NetherRealm Studios Twitter account sent out a confirmation as well. It releases on May 16 for PS4 and Xbox One.

[ORIGINAL STORY] Injustice 2 may be released May 16, according to a tweet by NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon.

The tweet follows a listing on the official Xbox Live Rewards website earlier this week that indicated Injustice 2 would arrive in March, which Boon had said was false. Neither Boon or NetherRealm has explicitly stated whether this is the official release date.

The last character reveal for the DC Comics fighting game was back in August, when a trailer showed off Harley Quinn and Deadshot. Harley Quinn was in the original Injustice, while Deadshot is a newcomer to the series.

Injustice 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

@lonesamurai1:

Yet Mortal Kombat X averaged higher reviews than Street Fighter V. Mortal Kombat (2011) reviews were exactly like Marvel vs Capcom 3. Injustice: Gods Among Us had better reviews than Tekken 6, and averaged the same as Soul Calibur V.

Bandai Namco used to be the top dog in the fighting genre, but not anymore, and Capcoms last fantastic fighter was Street Fighter IV.

Legendary fighting game studios that haven't made a really great competitive fighter in almost ten years.

Hell, Super Smash Bros is just as competitive as Street Fighter V, and Masahiro Sakurai didn't even aim Super Smash Bros at the competitive scene.

If everything is so much better, why aren't they rated higher?

@lonesamurai1:

It is still rated higher across the board. Also, you are comparing the activity of a game that released 1 year ago to a game that released 2 years ago, and the community for Mortal Kombat X is still very much lively. Mortal Kombat X also sold around 4 times the amount that Street Fighter V did. On Steam 830,000 people own Mortal Kombat X vs the 255,000 that own Street Fighter V. Hell, Mortal Kombat X sold three times as much than Street Fighter V did on the PS4 alone.

@lonesamurai1:

Uh...no...you don't understand Steam reviews.

It isn't "good vs. mixed." it is "recent vs. overall".

This means that Mortal Kombat X has 13,217 reviews, some positive some negative making the total mixed. However, recently the reviews are very positive (hence the very positive section you see)

Street Fighter V has only 4,600 reviews. It is also mixed, and even the recent reviews are mixed.

"especially when I know that my mind can't be changed"

Well that's good, at least you recognize it as an opinion. I don't need to convince you that they are better, because it is subjective, and you are free to feel how you wish.

@lonesamurai1: How is it possible, that haven't been banned yet??!!!

All you do is troll and rile people up and mods seem to be fine with that.

Yes, we all know that you're the biggest pc elitist on these forums.

Yes, there are games beyond pc.

Your typical post: " Is there a pc version"?

You console peasants 30fps blaablaa....

You have to be part of Gamespot staff.

Nothing but stirring trouble with console gamers.

How can you act like know-it-all if pc is your only platform?????!!!!!!

It's pathetic to say the least.

@lonesamurai1: All you do is "console crap 30fps, console kiddies and so on..."

I just can't understand why you aren't banned??!!

Year after year that same retarded trolling towards console gamers, especially Sony gamers.

You gotta be one of the Gamespot crew.

I bet you're hired to do the trolling so people read those clickbait articles.

The best part is that you don't see anything wrong with your behaviour.

Plus that elitist attitude.

You only have pc and you dare to lecture about gaming to others???!!!

@lonesamurai1: Are you saying that pc gaming is cheaper???!!

PC games are cheaper but then....

PC has no more piracy today??!!!

Is that what you're saying???

I could list many torrent sites, that are bloating with pc games.

Where are those PS4, Wii U or Xbox one torrents???

There are no torrents of those games.

So piracy on pc is as thriving as it ever was.

Keep denying this and you know nothing about pc gaming.

@lonesamurai1: pc piracy is everywhere, from games to production software, you have no clue, let me guess mommy bought you a prebuilt and now you cant help yourself but brag about what mommy had built? thats how you come off so im gonna stick with that. i am a pc gamer too, but its not everything, how am i suppose to play football? baseball????? a real fucking sports title???? you are an elitest for no reason.....pc games are NOT cheaper, they release at the same 60 dollars, steam sales arent special and the prices dont drop on pc like you people claim. its an illusion you have built for yourself. you are aware that pc master race is a diss towards pc gaming yet you probably say it on a daily basis lolol

@lonesamurai1: The point is, piracy STILL EXISTS ON PC, and it's thriving.

No matter how you look at it, it's still there.

I ain't gonna name any torrent sites, cause that's likely to get me banned.

Of course I know pros and cons of pc/console gaming, cause I DO BOTH.

@lonesamurai1: You don't see that elitist attitude you're having towards others??!!

Am I discussing with an adult or not?

PC nowadays lack any AAA titles.

You simply can't compare Sony exclusives against PC equivalent.

Indie games are nothing to brag about.

You have some kind of obsession about pc, so you think you're some kind of lecturer on the subject.

Guess what? I have PC too.

Yes, I use Steam, GOG, Uplay Origin and etc...

The reason I'm moving away from pc gaming is it's community.

People like you, an elitist.

Do you still think that you're a complete gamer IF PC IS YOUR ONLY PLATFORM???

I have pc + PS1-PS4 + Wii/U.

I'm lacking those xbox consoles, but nowadays pretty much everything comes to pc also, so no need for Xbox for me.

And it's true, that PC port begging petitions are truly pathetic.

Either you buy a console or stop crying.

As much as I love Ed Boon and NetherRealm, this probably won't be worth getting until the Komplete version comes out. They are way too DLC happy.

@Brettsky128: the DLC characters are never integrated in the main story so in a way they devalue the DLC a little, if you're a big MP person then the DLC is worth it, I'm not really....only with friends.....

i'll say this on the last game I grabbed it on PS4 day one and the primary character i played was Hawkgirl....but I couldn't take her into the story mode so yeah she was limited to just SP ladder or MP......

@darthrevenx: Yes, their pattern of withholding characters and charging inflated prices for them makes me reluctant to buy the game at launch. The money isn't the issue, it's the principle. In all likelyhood, I will wait for the complete version.
