Forums - Microsoft Discussion - What does Microsoft need to do to make Killer Instinct happen again?

We got two mentions, I'll add another . Eternal Champions. Series creator Michael Latham is making a fighting game similar to Killer Instinct Sega turned it down, Someone said To give it to american dev team that does Power Rangers? Heres one of my but don't know if they have the heart for it Skullgirls developer team though there characters are not KI but the Gameplay Mechanic is really good , I told maximilian dood maybe they can bring some past KI and Mortal Kombat retired developers and Poach some double helix and Neatherrealm developers to work on it .And poach some Iron Galaxy developers like how Microsoft had Bungie Joseph Staten Halo Story teller come to 343 Industries.

I'd Hire Maximilian dood to be the Champion of the Killer Instinct with enough imagination creative, along with Ken Lobb the creator of the Killer Instinct. Maximilian dood can make it go further they loves this series so much. He can lead the team and add some extra's.

Do a proper killer instinct that stays true to the franchise.
Skip the additions from other I.P... I felt it detracted from KI on the Xbox One.

But then make a Killer Instinct Brawl. - Include Banjo (Banjo Kazooi), Joanna Dark (Perfect Dark), Conker (Conker), Master Chief (Halo), Arbiter (Halo), Marcus Fenix (Gears), Jade (Beyond Good and Evil), Theresa (Fable), Jack of Blades (Fable), Blinx (Blinx), Rash/Zitz/Pimple (Battletoads), Ori (Ori and the will of the wisps), Steve (Minecraft) and probably a shit ton more in the roster. Make it freaking ridiculous. - Stretch the DLC to include characters from other franchises. Deus Ex? Tomb Raider? Crysis?

That's the thing double helix started it with the first season and they are bought by Amazon while Iron galaxy (who is so busy with many projects) continued it.   It isn't that Iron galaxy don't want to make it, they clearly do but they can't for atleast some years because of all the other projects.

Guest Characters i would want in New KI if it does happen Dragonborn, Doom Slayer and Spartan Locke.



Call me old fashioned but I like my games to come out in one piece lol. I didn't like how they released it in stages especially for a franchise I grew up playing. I woudl have rather they delayed it and done a full game. I know in the end they got there but for me personally it wasn't for me.

We need to know how much did Killer Instinct sold ? I know it won't count much since it's free on Gamepass. but would be nice how many bought physical and digital I last heard it had 15 million in install base if I remember from before.

There's this artical link below before gamepass, which had 10 million players since 2017 but I think I heard 15 million in 2019? link below from 2017

Keep in mind it is free to play.

The content packs were given away for free during various games with gold months as well.
