Ed Boon, head of NetherRealm Studios, has taken to Twitter to reveal the official release date for the superhero fighting game Injustice 2.

The same release date was later tweeted by the studio’s official account, revealing the game will launch on May 16, 2017 in the Americas. Still no word on the official European release date, but we can hazard a guess it will be around the same time.

So now we know Injustice 2 will hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 16.
