Injustice 3 Roster Potentially Leaks Online; According to a recent leak, the long-rumored Injustice 3 will be revealed at The Games Awards this year, with a targeted release date of May 2022.
Over the last decade, Nether Realm Studios and Ed Boon have been alternating Mortal Kombat and Injustice titles bi-annually. As a result, the Injustice games have established themselves as one of the best fighting game franchises, borrowing quite a few moves from the Mortal Kombat series.
According to a recent leak over on 4chan, the Injustice 3 roster will consist of over 30 fighters from DC Comics, with more joining in as fighter pack expansions.
Injustice 3 Roster Potentially Leaks
According to a new rumor, NetherRealm Studios is working on Injustice 3 and will reveal the game at The Game Awards this December 9. To this end, the story claims the game is releasing May 2022 and “leaks” not just the game’s roster but a few DLC characters that are set to be added to the title after it releases on what will presumably be PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and possibly Nintendo Switch.
According to the leaker, NetherRealm Studios saves precious development time and resources by borrowing some of the work on Mortal Kombat 11 for Injustice 3.
“Several characters will be borrowing ideas from the previous Netherrealm Studios game in terms of gameplay and specials (as they always do),” said the leaker. “For instance, Red Tornado will borrow from MK11’s Fujin, Metallo will borrow from MK11’s Terminator, and Constantine will borrow from MK11’s Shang Tsung.”
The game’s roster will supposedly comprise 29 characters, one of which will be locked behind pre-ordering. Additionally, NetherRealm Studios is planning four fighter packs, consisting of three DLC characters and exclusive skin for a pre-existing character.
The leaks claim that The Games Awards 2021 is the official announcement platform with Geoff Keighley and Ed Boon. The launch window is expected to be around May 2022. While that is plausible, DC Fandom seems to be a more viable platform for a DC game to debut, similar to Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad Killed the Justice League last year.

The Bottom Line
Now, it’s important to remember this is all just a rumor that needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Further, it contradicts recent reports that NetherRealm Studios’ next game will not be Injustice 3, but Mortal Kombat 12.
