Injustice 2, the upcoming fighting video game developed by NetherRealm Studios, finally got a release date, and you will be able to play it sooner than you think.
Today, Ed Boon, the creative director at NetherRealm Studios announced on his Twitter account that Injustice 2 will be released on May 16, 2017 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

This announcement was made several days after Xbox Live Rewards listed the video game for a March 28 release, creating quite some fuss, since Mass Effect: Andromeda was also listed for a March 31 release.
BioWare already announced that Mass Effect: Andromeda will be released on March 21, 2017, while Ed Boon’s tweet below made it clear that Injustice 2 will not be released on the date listed by Xbox Live Rewards.
FYI: Injustice 2 is not coming out March 28.

So, if you were worried that you won’t have time to play both of them, you can relax now as you have more than 6 weeks to finish Mass Effect: Andromeda, before kicking some b**t in Injustice 2.
It is worth noting that Injustice 2 will include characters from the previous installment as well as new heroes and villains.
According to Warner Bros. Interactive, Injustice 2 will feature the “biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game.”
Amazon is already taking pre-orders for Injustice 2, even though they didn’t update the release date.
If you didn’t play the first game in the series, you can buy it for $19.99 and complete it by the time Injustice 2 releases.
So, charge your controllers and get ready because on May 16, 2017 you will have to enter the Injustice arena once more.
