Injustice 2 ELeague World Championship Coming In October 2017

It's been just under a month since DC's fighting game sequel Injustice 2 was released to the public on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

In May, TBS announced it would in June air "Clash for Cash: The Rematch", a $250,000 rematch between "Counter-strike: Global Offensive" teams Astralis and Virtus.pro. The tournament will be broadcasted on TBS. The series, spanning events in North America, Europe and Latin America, offers a total prize pool of $600,000 to pro and amateur gamers.

The ELEAGUE Street Fighter V Invitational averaged 213,000 live viewers according to a ratings report from Awful Announcing.

Injustice 2 continues the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman's regime.

Other partners for the Injustice 2 Championship Series, comprising four other tournaments leading up to the October worldwide finals, include ESL, Gamelta eSports Professional League, GameStop, Sony's PlayStation 4 and Twitch.

The Injustice 2 World Championship will mark ELEAGUE's second foray into fighting games, but it will be the first time it serves as an official part of a fighting game championship circuit. "It's a great game in the fighting game community, it features the DC Comics characters, and it's an evergreen property, so for us, it just seemed like the flawless fit".

"We had a blast with our last foray into fighting games with Street Fighter, it was an wonderful community", Alejandre said.

Eleague's most recent trek into the world of fighting games involved the best of the best competing in Capcom's mainstay title, Street Fighter 5. We got really great feedback.
