Iron Galaxy Studios to Take Over Development on Killer Instinct for Xbox One

After losing Double Helix thanks to Amazon's acquisition of the developer, Microsoft has decided to bring on the folks at Iron Galaxy Studios to take over the Killer Instinct series on Xbox One.

"This is an amazing opportunity to work on a game and a genre we are super passionate about," Iron Galaxy CEO Dave Lang told Polygon"Before we were ever talking about this, I was a fan of the game. And to get to now take it over and start with this great base, and expand it and put new stuff on top of it, everyone in the company is super pumped up, and we can't wait to show people what we're going to be doing down the road."

Iron Galaxy is responsible for acclaimed fighting titles like Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike Online Edition as well as last year's unique hit, Divekick

In addition to this news, the studio has announced that the next title update, which brings Fulgore into the fold, will be released on April 9th.
