Rumor: NetherRealm Studios looking to develop new Killer Instinct game

Original Gamer: "An anonymous source at NetherRealm Studios has said that the Mortal Kombat developer is looking to secure the rights to develop a new Killer Instinct game. As you can guess, getting the rights for a new Killer Instinct will be tricky as Nintendo and Rare, now owned by Microsoft, have rights to the game, but in these days, anything is possible when the right amount of money is on the table."

That would be so sick. If Nintendo and MS are just going to sleep on the KI franchise, why not give to someone that would treat KI with the respect it deserves.

I just hope if NetherRealm gets the rights, they pull some of the old talent that developed the old games to collaborate on the new one. Please, make this happen.

I would assume MS wouldn't sell them the rights for KI, just have them develop the game and MS would publish it. MS might not think that first party studios are important (which is obvious when you compare their first party studios with Sony's or Nintendo's), but they still value IPs.
