On another note, "Injustice 2" Game Developer NetherRealm Studios is expected to include RPG style elements to the gameplay of "Injustice 2" allegedly because of the sequel's Gear System. The system was a main concern of the game's fans who had thought that it could affect the overall balance of the gameplay.

The "Injustice 2" is also said to include playable characters that will move quicker and do a lot more damage.
