With Mortal Kombat X heading into the rear-view mirror, it’s about time for NetherRealm Studios to announce a new game. It looks like that game is Injustice 2, a sequel to the DC fighting game from 2013.
The first word on Injustice 2 came from Twitter this morning, apparently part of a retail promotion arriving before the game’s official reveal.
The game’s tagline appears to be “every battle defines you.”
Game Informer and Polygon both received similar shots from sources, and Kotaku has separately confirmed the poster is real with a retail source.

Horror Video Games to Play Leading Up to Halloween
Spooky and scary
Something video games have over their film counterparts when it comes to horror is the player’s agency. Sure, watching the slasher claim their next victim can get a jumpscare out of you, but you know what’s scarier? Knowing you had the power to stop it. Watching someone slowly open a door and enter a dark room is unnerving, but having to do it yourself will send shivers down your spine and paralyze you with fear.
Mortal Kombat co-creator and NetherRealm founder Ed Boon, known to be playful and teasing on social media, is taking the news in stride.
Hopefully, we’ll get a look at the game in the coming days.
