Injustice 2 will be released in May

After a not-so-subtle tease from NetherRealm creative director Ed Boon, Warner Bros. has confirmed that Injustice 2 will launch in May.

Speculation began when Boon tweeted this image on his personal Twitter account. It didn’t take long for fans to realize that the seemingly random sequence of digits looked awfully like a calendar date and that the first sequence, “i2,” was clearly meant to reference Injustice 2. Soon after Boon’s tweet was posted, both publisher Warner Bros and NetherRealm’s official Twitter account confirmed that Injustice 2’s North American launch date will be May 16, 2017.

In addition to returning combatants like Harley Quinn and Batman, Injustice 2 will also include some new blood on its roster such as Supergirl, Deadshot, and Gorilla Grodd.
