Injustice Developers Might Reveal a New Title at DC FanDome as Ed Boon Will Attend the Show
Ed Boon's appearance in a DC-focused event gives off strong Injustice 3 vibes.
Warner Bros. is going to hold a big online convention on August 22nd, featuring the company’s latest products including movies, TV series, and video games. While Suicide Squad is the only game that has officially been teased for an announcement at the event yet, it seems Nether Realm Studios, the team behind Injustice series, will also have a new presentation as Ed Boon will be appearing somewhere in the show.
Thus far, Mortal Kombat and Injustice are the two major franchises that Nether Realm has been working on over the past years. The studio delivered Mortal Kombat 11 in Spring last year and released its first expansion, Aftermath, later in May 2020.

Ed Boon’s appearance at DC FanDome was revealed in a brief teaser of the event and then confirmed by himself on Twitter. His attendance in the event couldn’t be related to Mortal Kombat 11 since the show is a DC-focused stream that will only deliver updates about the products set in the DC universe. Given that, most of the fans assume that the studio head will probably reveal the third entry from the Injustice series, which is a fighting franchise featuring all the popular characters from DC Comics.
After releasing the post-launch expansion of Mortal Kombat 11, Nether Realm is probably now focused on its next big project which will likely target the next-gen platforms. With the incredible success of Injustice 2, it wouldn’t be surprising if we get to see the announcement of Injustice 3 as the next upcoming title from Ed Boon and his team.
Recently, it was rumored that AT&T, the parent company of Warner Bros. Interactive is considering selling its gaming division to another company while keeping the rights for the projects based on DC Comics and other brands that belong to WB. While no deals have been done yet, it seems the gaming projects would be affected by the decision as all the WB internal studios are working on their next-gen titles.
