Source? Also this doesn't really mean anything, they probably updated the trademark so they wouldn't lose it or something (weird legal issues probably)

Microsoft made the announcement themselves on their XBLA blog here.

Thanks! :D

Anywho, Yeah it can mean nothing at all to the prospects of a KI3... but a HD releases for KI and KI2 on XBLA would prove just as lucrative :mrgreen:

oh. Then obviously something is coming up :D

Good luck KI fans. Here's hoping for HD rereleases to hype up the 3rd installment in the series :D. Also 3DS ports please.

Meanwhile, Murphy said, the company was always interested in revisiting the Killer Instinct franchise in HD, as is often requested by ardent Rare fans. "We all wanted to make KI3, but Microsoft [was] more interested in broadening their demographic than making another fighting game," he said. "So it never got made, I doubt it ever will."

Looks like that's the final nail in the coffin for Killer Instinct. RIP.

Or should that be Killed Instinct? Guffaw...

I imagine Microsoft will either fight it, or just make a game simply called "KI" or something like that.

The latter would be pefectly acceptable as a majority of fans simply refer to the game as "KI" anyways.
