With the deluge of trailers and announcements for Injustice 2 over the past few months, you might have thought that development work on the game wrapped up a while ago. Not so, apparently. NetherRealm’s superhero fighting game has apparently only just gone gold.
While no “official” announcement was actually made, the banner and image of Injustice 2 creative director Ed Boon’s twitter account was recently updated with a gold-plated logo for the game (as spotted by WWG). Knowing Boon’s tendency for obvious hints, that’s as good as official confirmation.
For those unfamiliar with the term, “going gold” means that the game is completed and in the retail stage of release. There will likely be a day-one update for the game- as is customary nowadays- but NetherRealm Studios now has the build that fans will be getting their hands on.
The fifth and final trailer in the “Shattered Alliances” series completes the foundation for the game’s upcoming single-player story campaign. This new trailer has Brainiac invading Earth, forcing foes to become friends in order to stop him.
Injustice 2 is slated to launch May 16th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a mobile version expected to drop around the same time. To keep up with all the game’s news in one place, check out EGM’s full guide to Injustice 2.
