Microsoft and Killer Instinct dev Double Helix part ways
Microsoft has parted ways with Killer Instinct developer Double Helix after they were acquired by Amazon this week.
Although the exact reasons for the parting of ways are unclear Microsoft announced that they are looking forward to working with a “new development partner” on Killer Instinct.
"We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Double Helix and wish them success in their next endeavour,” 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. We're excited about the future of this popular franchise."
Double Helix's other recent project has been the new downloadable Strider game for Capcom which is due out later this month on current and next-gen consoles and PC.
