Killer Instinct ‘second season’ planned for 2014

Microsoft wants Xbox One fighter to span entire generation.

When Killer Instinct launches for Xbox One this November, it will launch with eight characters for $20. But according to Microsoft’s Ken Lobb, the company will launch a ‘second season’ of characters in 2014.

“You can pay $20 again and now you have 16 characters, or you pay $40 again and you’ll get the everything version,” Lobb told Eurogamer.

Microsoft wants Killer Instinct to be a single game that spans an entire generation, according to Lob.

“Obviously like everything else, it depends on whether it sells,” Lobb said. “But my expectation is yes. That’s the goal.”
