Killer Instinct will have 'new development partner' after Double Helix sale

Yesterday, Amazon snatched up Double Helix, developer of Killer Instinct for Xbox One. The free-to-play fighting game was due to have an extensive amount of post-launch DLC support, including the potential for a "season two" of DLC. What happens now that Double Helix is no longer aligned with Microsoft?

According to Microsoft, the company will be working with a new developer for future updates on the franchise. "We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Double Helix and wish them success in their next endeavor," a Microsoft spokesperson 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."
