The Sequel to Injustice Rumored for 2017

Recent rumors have arisen that a sequel to the hit DC fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, is now in development. The game was originally a follow up to Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, made by the same developer.

Set in an alternate universe where Superman has become the world’s greatest threat after that world’s Joker tricked him into killing his wife, Lois Lane, and their unborn child. The story followed Injustice’s Batman calling upon the mainstream Justice League to help stop the fallen heroes from further terrorizing the people they are supposed to protect.

The game itself was highly praised for its use of the DC character, the story and for the fighting mechanics. However, the franchise has remained within the public eye in no small part to the ongoing comic book series of the same name. The series covered the years and events preceding the video game and has itself been praised for fleshing out characters in ways that the game did not.

Though the internet has gone into a calm fury over the news, it is important to note that this information has not been confirmed as of yet, and should be taken with a huge grain of salt. Or some other food preservative if you want to keep your sodium intake at a minimum.

So what do you think of the rumors so far? Are you eager for a sequel, do you think that one is enough? Let us know in the comments below.
