Injustice 3 game has yet to be announced by developer NetherRealm Studio or publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, but that doesn't mean it's not coming. NetherRealms Studio might be busy with Mortal Kombat right now, but here are three reasons they should make another Injustice game once they're able.
1. Increased Profile for More DC Characters
In the years since Injustice 2's release, Warner Bros. and DC have continued to aggressively push their cinematic universe. Titles including "Wonder Woman," "Justice League," "Aquaman" and "Shazam!" have expanded the general public's knowledge of these characters, making any video game they star in a safe bet.
2. Capitalize on Strong Reception of Previous Games
Both Injustice: Gods Among Us and Injustice 2 received widespread critical approval, holding mid to high 80s. The games were also commercial successes. A sequel would help build on that foundation, and increase NetherRealm Studios prestige even further.
3. Resolve the Story
Injustice 2 left its ending up to players to decide. They could decide to side with Superman and reinstate the Regime or with Batman and end it forever. Only one can be canon, and players will want to see which NetherRealm chooses.
