Many fans are concerned that the upcoming Injustice 2 will have region locked multiplayer, similar to that used by Netherrealm’s previous fighting game, Mortal Kombat X. Now, creative director Ed Boon has weighed on the issue as part of a fan Q&A on Twitter.
Boon’s response should give Injustice 2 fans reason to be optimistic, as it appears the team is attempting to allow “cross-continent” online play.

While Boon’s answer is far from a definitive yes or no, it certainly sounds like the problem is on his list of priorities. That’s bound to be comforting news for fans opposed to region locking.
Injustice 2 is slated to launch sometime in 2017 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and fans will want to check out how the roster is coming along.
