Xbox One’s Killer Instinct is soon going to be in new hands. Amazon has spent the last year beefing up its games division, and the latest addition is Double Helix, the developer of the aforementioned Xbox One fighting game.
Despite the sudden change, fans of the series should have no reason to worry. As Microsoft told Polygon: “We want all of our loyal fans to know that the Killer Instinct team at Microsoft is not changing and that the franchise will remain with Microsoft Studios. We remain dedicated to delivering a great experience and plan to announce our new development partner soon.” Needless to say, Microsoft wouldn’t abandon one of its marquee franchises – we should have plenty more Killer Instinct coming our way soon.
