In a Microsoft Reward survey, Microsoft hinted at the upcoming launch of Killer Instinct 3 on the Xbox One and Windows 10 platforms. The title will come to both platforms as a new Xbox Play Anywhere video game.

Microsoft mentioned the upcoming title in a survey soliciting interest in both current and upcoming Xbox Play Anywhere games. However, there is no official confirmation for the game’s release nor are there any further details regarding the title.

Killer Instinct is a popular fighting game that includes new visuals, over-the-top action, a wild cast of fighters, rocking music, and combo breakers. But until now, developers have shunned releasing a sequel to the game, opting instead for season updates. Killer Instinct Season Three launched in 2016 and since then, the title received a few updates including the Shadow Lords storyline and additional characters.

The game lets you choose combatants, each with fluid animations, unique combat tactics, and special attacks. Players can also use the open-ended combo system to rack up combos as opponents search for openings to defeat you.
