Looking forward to see how gimped the PC version turns out.

Just in time for another gimped and left-to-die Nintendo port from WB (see Injustice 1)

Nevertheless I'm looking forward to the game itself.

Obviously a false rumour because development on the PC version would probably start in April 2017.

first game was alright, but I kinda wish Netherrealm was working on something else rather than this MK-Injustice-MK-Injustice cycle. Hopefully they completely overhaul the character designs this time around though.

This guy made a video about it over a week ago, didn't want to post a thread for this though. He basically says he knows someone who was playtester on the first game and he confirmed they're working on a sequel.

Well MK9 was April 2011, Injustice was April 2013, MKX was April 2015, so it makes sense for Injustice 2 to be April 2017. They are hitting WB's fiscal targets consistently.

Loved the first one! Have it on PS4 but I wonder why the first didn't make it to Xbox One when it was on every system imaginable.

The thinking is that Sony cut some sort of deal to get it next gen exclusive as a way to combat Xbone launching with KI.

This was expected.

Though the other topic ended up making me wish for a Shaolin Monks remake, which led to me search and find out that Ed Boon teased a remaster or a remake in 2013... which just makes things worse as I know it's not likely at all.

After the fiasco that was MKX on PC, Netherrealm and WB can fuck right off and won't be receiving any of my money.

Makes sense, wonder why they didn't cut another deal. With so many fighting games exclusive to their console now(SF, KOF, GG, BB) it seems like they want to make it the default console for the genre.

Anyway I look forward to injustice not being held back by old systems and iOS.

I wonder if this E3 reveal means they won't be showing that new game from AO developers. Superman, was it?

There's been rumours of a Sucide Squad game from them for a while now. I'd be happy to see either one announced at E3, if real.

You do know they're going milk the fuck out of the game with an Injustice 2 app, right?

They're welcome to finish the PC version of MK10 if they want me to spend more than $10 on their new game. (By then I expect to know if Injustice 2 is a complete game.)

Next year is very big for WB. Wonder Woman and JL movies coming so it makes sense for them to release a game for DC stuff as well. Be it Injustice or wtvr. I'm still wishing we get a new Superman game from Rocksteady tho. I'd take that over a fighting game.

I don't know if it's really necessary, but okay.

I'm actually in the middle of the first game, but only because I got it for free. It's better than expected, but the story is overdrawn and uninteresting and the gameplay feels kind of stilted.

I'm playing through it to get it off my backlog. But I don't dislike it. I'd never pay for an Injustice game, though, or really any fighting game anymore.

I'm really curious about NRS's game development schedule. I find releasing such content-heavy fighters every two years consistently quite impressive if that new date is accurate.

Are they large and have more than one project going at a time? Are they just that efficient?
