With the release of Mortal Kombat X last year, NetherRealm Studios is likely planning something new for their new project. But that something new might be a return to the twisted alternate universe of Injustice: Gods Among Us.
For the last few days, Ed Boon, NetherRealm’s Creative Director, has been posting tweet after tweet (and four more after that) about DC’s superheroes. The developer also erased the Mortal Kombat Dragon from his profile picture and replaced it with a “II” symbol.
Boon has a reputation for playful antics on his Twitter feed, and this Injustice 2 tease could just be an elaborate hoax. But the 2016 E3 Expo is less than two weeks away, and it’s just as likely Boon is doing his part to stir up interest in the announcement as NetherRealm’s resident hype man.
Either way, we’ll probably learn more about NetherRealm’s next project soon.
