There is no doubt that Injustice Mobile’s lifespan has far exceeded the lifespan of the console version in both developer support and fan interest. The game has far outgrown it’s bigger brother and has become a much more than just the next mobile game.
But ever since the announcement of Injustice 2 many fans have been asking what its mobile version will be and how it is going to relate to Injustice Mobile. In this article we are going to give you all the facts and the current status of Injustice 2 Mobile.
There are several scenarios, all with pros and cons for the players. On one side you can’t expand Injustice Mobile indefinitely and on the other side you can’t just stop supporting a game fans have invested hundreds of thousands of hours and dollars and say “Here is the next one, start again”. You also can’t really have both games at the same time, fans don’t live only to play your challenges the whole time. It is already overcrowded with Injustice Mobile, Mortal Kombat X Mobile and WWE Immortals and that’s just from Netherrealm Studios With this said, we see four possible scenarios:
- Injustice Mobile gets updated with the new Injustice 2 characters.
- Injustice Mobile’s support is stopped and Injustice 2 Mobile is introduced with all new characters.
- You keep both games and support them until one of them looses the battle.
- You keep both games but you introduce a completely new concept with Injustice 2 Mobile so that it doesn’t overlap with Injustice Mobile and Mortal Kombat X Mobile
