A new rumor has revealed the possible return of a classic series on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Unlike PlayStation and Nintendo, Xbox doesn’t have an amazing IP. It has Halo, Gears of War, Forza, Fable, and a few other heavy hitters, but not enough to keep up with their biggest rivals. It might fix things after buying Bethesda’s parent company, ZeniMax Media, and adding Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, DOOM, Wolfenstein, and more to its IP arsenal, but until then the Xbox has an IP problem.
However, there is an IP with its value. Last year, it announced its revival of two of its biggest examples: Fable and Perfect Dark. Still, Microsoft has more IPs where it can pull something out. For example, Killer Instinct. Will Killer Instinct be as big as Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat? Probably not, but an IP with a lot of potential that Microsoft tried to revive on the Xbox One, but it didn’t touch the series after this failed attempt.
In a recent episode of Xbox Two, Jez Corden announced that he heard that Microsoft wanted to make a new Killer Instinct but was unable to find the right partner to develop the game.
It is worth remembering that nothing here is official.
