While it may come to no surprise, it appears the Joker is indeed in the Injustice 2 roster with his true reveal possibly happening very soon.
According to two achievements found on XboxAchievements.com, the Joker will indeed be a playable character. The achievements in question both state the Joker by name as a character you fight against and play as. No official announcement, however, has been made by Neitherrealm Studios, though that may change according to the official website listing for the next character reveal, which takes place on a rather special day of this month.
The next character trailer is set to release on 4/28. You may be wondering why this day is special and if you are a big Batman comic fan you’ll know that issue 428 is a rather very tragic one titled “Death in the Family”. The issue marks the death of Batman’s 2nd Robin, Jason Todd, in which the Joker brutally tortures the young sidekick with a crowbar and then kills him at the end. While this isn’t much of a confirmation, Ed Boon and the guys over at Neatherrealm have been known for hinting things in a cryptic fashion. It is more than likely we will see a reveal of The Joker this Friday, and if not possibly also may be a small hint at The Red Hood.
Injustice 2 is set to release on May 16th on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
