After months of hope and anticipation from fans, Warner Bros. Interactive confirmed today that Injustice 2 will be coming to PC by way of Steam later this year. The port will be handled by Polish studio QLOC, which was responsible for porting Mortal Kombat XL, the refined version of 2015's Mortal Kombat, last year.
While "later this year" means no specific release date was given, players will be given the chance to try out the work in progress tomorrow via an open beta available on Steam. WB has not specified how long the open beta will be or what characters will be included, but still, this is a neat way to get a taste of what the PC can do for this beloved fighting game.
As most of us already know, Injustice 2 is already available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game released this past May to critical acclaim, as well as praise for those astonishing facial animations. We talked about it on episode 166 of the podcast, and we liked it a lot.
The upcoming PC release may not be the game's last port, as NetherRealm boss Ed Boon said he likes the idea of bringing Injustice 2 to Nintendo Switch. The newest DLC character, Atom, was announced earlier this month and will be available in the game's third fighter pack beginning this December.
UPDATE: The PC beta has been cancelled, and pending a new date. More information can be found in our story here.
