With NetherRealm Studios constantly increasing the playable roster of Injustice 2 with characters like Brainiac, Poison Ivy, and introducing the gear system, many fans are wondering why there is no Joker in Injustice 2. Well, it seems that Joker’s appearance in the game has been confirmed.
The confirmation of Joker being a playable character in Injustice 2 comes from Xbox Achievements, who updated their website with the full list of achievements for Injustice 2. What is interesting is that a couple of achievements name Joker as a playable character, which seemingly confirms that Joker is coming to the upcoming game.
As NetherRealm Studios has already announced that a new character for the upcoming game will be revealed on April 28, we will not be surprised if it is the Joker they were going to reveal. However, given that NetherRealm has not officially announced Joker for the game, take is as a grain of salt. The achievements in question are:
I Love You, I Hate You
Harley must defeat Joker with the final hit coming from Go Night Night
Why Aren’t You Laughing?
Joker must defeat Batman with the final hit coming from Not So Funny Is It?
Also, NetherRealm Studios has confirmed that Injustice 2 will feature microtransactions, However, the studio has made is clear that it won’t make the game pay-to-win.
Injustice 2 is an upcoming fighting game based on DC Comics and is in development at Netherrealm Studios and is scheduled to launch on May 16, 2017, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
