It’s official: DC Universe is going fully into comics as its video content transitions to HBO Max. WarnerMedia has announced that the service, which was a streaming service for DC film, television, original content and comics, will abandon its shows and go to a comics-only format as DC Universe Infinite.

The announcement noted that the new service will launch in January and will offer DC catalog titles six months after they go on sale in stores. That’s a big bump up from the service’s previous one-year delay and puts it in line with Marvel Unlimited. In additiuon to the digital comic catalogue, it will include a fan community for all subscribers with evenrs planned through 2021 and earlier access to the DC Digital-First titles including Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red and Injustice: Year Zero.

“Our fans love the platform’s robust library of comic books and, with the transformation, we will not disappoint,” DC publisher and chief creative officer Jim Lee said in a statement. “I’m excited to share that not only will DC Universe Infinite members still be able to read all of the great comics that they’ve enjoyed but new issues are debuting on the platform quicker than before, digital first exclusives are being created, and the members-only events will begin as soon as possible. ”

The new service launches in the US on January 21st, 2021. All the video content originally created for DC Universe including Young Justice, Titans, Doom Patrol, Stargirl season one, and Harley Quinn, will move to HBO Max and transition into Max Original series.
