New Killer Instinct

#1DarkshowersPosted 12/2/2013 11:03:37 AM
So we know MK9 and even Injustice eventually came to Steam and even other fighting games but can we expect to see the new Killer Instinct in a year or so?? I'm not planning on getting an Xbox for awhile so I hope it comes out on PC.

I was a huge fan of Killer Instinct for SNES as it was the first fighting game I played competitively with my friend. I played the Xbox version at a store recently and found it to be fairly faithful to the original games.

MS does not like putting their titles on PC. It's like a .01% chance of it happening.

on one hand MS would be desperate to keep it as an xbone exclusive.

on the other it's a f2p game with only one free character(but apparently the rest are on rotation one at a time but who knows how long that'll take) so if it fails to make any real money then maybe we'll see a pc port.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

I doubt it will happen, look at Halo MS doesn't care

We are about as likely to see a FM5 port on PC, as we are to see KI. If Microsoft starts letting exclusives such as those land on other platforms, then what would be the point of ever owning an XB1? I know I wouldn't have purchased one if that were the case, at all.

They've expressed interest in supporting the PC more. We'll probably get it eventually.

IF killer instinct did come on PC, it would be windows 8-only. Halo 2 was vista-only and Halo spartan assault is windows 8-only.

AoE2 HD isn't Windows 8 only.

You people should stop being so doom and gloom and just wait.
