The popular massively multiplayer online franchise DC Universe Online has been thrilling fans of DC Comics for a while now. Indeed, the MMO is celebrating its fifth year anniversary and has been available throughout on Windows PCs and Sony Playstations (PS3 and PS4). The lack of Xbox support has been a bummer for Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman fans everywhere who also play on Microsoft’s gaming platform, but apparently all of that is changing as Xbox One support has been officially announced.

DC Universe 5th Anniversary

Here’s the game’s description, if you’ve ignored it given its absence on your favorite platform:

DC Universe™ Online is a Free-to-Play, massive multiplayer online action game set in the popular DC Comics universe. Create your own powerful Hero or Villain and experience true action combat as you fight alongside and against legendary characters such as Batman, Superman and The Joker.

The great news for Xbox One owners came via Twitter, where all of the best announcements originate:

DayBreak Games isn’t providing more specific timing than “Spring 2016,” but that’s better than nothing. If you’re a DC and Xbox One fan, at least, you know that support is coming soon.
