When Amazon bought Double Helix Games last month, many Killer Instinct fans were wondering what will happen to their favorite game. Today, we have a clear answer. Microsoft is bringing Iron Galaxy Studios on board for Killer Instinct: Season 2.
Who is Iron Galaxy Studios? They are the team behind 2011’s Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike Online Edition and last year’s Divekick.
Iron Galaxy Studios CEO Dave Lang revealed the news to Polygon earlier today.
“This is an amazing opportunity to work on a game and a genre we are super passionate about,” Lang told Polygon.
Polygon has a fantastic article about how Iron Galaxy Studios was chosen and a previous chance the studio had at working on Killer Instinct.
There’s one more piece of Killer Instinct news today. Check out the Fulgore launch trailer below.
At the end of the trailer there are teases for Arcade mode and 8 player lobbies. Microsoft and Double Helix Games have done a fantastic job with Killer Instinct. I’m sure Iron Galaxy Studios will continue the great work as season 2 approaches.
