    Damn, I wonder who could possibly help Microsoft develop Killer Instinct now that Double Helix is gone. Developers are so Rare these days.

    The way it sounds is Double Helix is still going to be developing and working on the game. Microsoft Game Studios Funded and help them with it but just because Amazon now owns the game does not mean its just going to stop. The game mechanics are really fun and developed well which is funny because its one of the few fighting games I really enjoy playing. I can't wait for March when the character Story lines come out and Fulgore is available.
