Microsoft's PlayXBLA talked of the renewal, saying that Microsoft's legal department authorized the following statement regarding the franchise: "We either renewed or refiled a trademark application in various jurisdictions". So, we might not see a new Killer Instinct game after all, it looks like the Redmond-based company is just protecting their rights.

 

Would you like to see another Killer Instinct game made? Maybe as a next-gen title with some truly mind-blowing graphics and realism?
