Injustice 2 is still alive and well in the competitive circuit with a $100k Grand Finals event coming to Chicago for their Pro Series. The event will be November 13th and bring together the 16 world finalists from North America, Europe, and Latin America.

The event will be broadcast on Twitch as well as The Disney Channel and ESPN3. This isn’t new for the channels as it’s part of their growing investments into esports programming. Disney has the rights for both League of Legends and Overwatch broadcasts and have also aired the Madden Championship Series.
It’s great to see Injustice 2 continuing to drive an event circuit like this as games with licensed characters seldom see this level of success outside of the Marvel VS games produced by Capcom.
