Initially debuting in 2013 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and the Wii U, the DC Comics platform fighting game and comic book series known as Injustice has made a name for itself. Created by NetherRealm, the game features playing styles similar to those in the Mortal Kombat games, which NetherRealm is also responsible for. The first game in the series, Injustice: Gods Among Us featured a plethora of DC’s most iconic characters, as well as some that are considered to be a bit underappreciated, such as Lobo and Ares, along with one of Mortal Kombat’s most popular characters: Scorpion. Four years later, in 2017, Injustice 2 was released and had an entirely new roster, except for a few characters, such as Batman, Superman, the Flash, and Aquaman. Injustice 2 was complete with a few more extra features than Injustice: Gods Among Us. For instance, the sequel had unlockable gear, levels, and “the Multiverse,” which contained various fights and challenges to face, similar to Mortal Kombat’s “Towers”. Injustice 2 was released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It has now been three years since Injustice 2’s release, and besides DLC releases, NetherRealm has been very silent about the possibility of the series’ expansion. . . until recently.
Tom Taylor, the comic author behind the Injustice comic series, along with DCeased, hinted at a third game and a partner comic series. By elimination, the theoretical roster for a third Injustice game could include slightly lesser known characters such as Constantine, Steppenwolf, and Metamorpho. It is hypothesized that they game’s main story line could wither follow the events of Injustice 2, or possibly follow a plot similar to that of DCeased, which resolves around Darkseid and his search for the “Anti-life equation.”
Overall, there is not much information that has been given by the creators regarding the game’s contents and release, but above are just simple ideas and guidelines that many feel that they game will follow.
