Injustice: Gods Among Us could soon bear a sequel, dubbed Injustice: Gods Among Us 2. This idea is backed by a recently leaked poster depicting Batman and The Flash battling, with a tagline reading “Every battle defines you.”
According to this rumor, a letter sent to Gamestop managers informs them that the poster is free with pre-orders. To make things even more confusing, Ed Boon, the head of NetherRealm Studios and creator of the original Injustice, changed his Twitter profile picture with a picture that could be interpreted as a “II”. As users quickly rushed to use this as proof confirming the upcoming Injustice sequel, Boon immediately tempered their excitement suggesting the new picture could also be interpreted as a 11.
Could it be possible that the game developer is preparing to announce both games?
Soon after, Boon posted an invitation list for a party, striking out Gamestop. A Twitter user suggested he should also leave out Polygon since they first reported the news. Boon simply replied: “My tweet was in fun! No hate here! :)”, delivering another piece of confusing messaging.
Injustice: Gods Among Us 2 is likely to be released for the Xbox One since no information is available about which platforms the game is coming to. Taking into account the importance of Microsoft’s console and the number of its users, game developers wouldn’t leave the Xbox out.
Although we always recommend taking rumors with a grain of salt, we cannot help but notice Boon’s deliberately confusing tweets, all of which seem to subtlety confirm the rumor.
