It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Injustice 2, but Ed Boon hopped on Twitter this afternoon to reveal a release date for the DC Comics fighting game. Like Batman, fans should begin preparing now, because Injustice 2 will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One on May 16:

The Injustice series takes place in an alternate version of the DC Universe where Superman has taken over the world after The Joker kills Lois Lane, though he’s opposed by a small resistance lead by Batman and… believe it or not… Harley Quinn.
The sequel will add a Gear System that lets players customize their favorite superhero or supervillain with unique armor pieces, and include appearances by Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Supergirl, Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd, Wonder Woman, Blue Beetle, Harley Quinn and Deadshot. Presumably, we’ll learn more about the rest of the game’s roster in the coming weeks.
