Killer Instinct is Coming to PC

killer instinct 08-12-14-1

Microsoft has confirmed that Killer Instinct is coming to PC.

The news was confirmed at this year’s PC Game Show press conference, where Xbox boss Phil Spencer confirmed the game coming to PC.

“For me, there are a lot of opportunities for cross-platform, but there’s a lot of games that should be on a TV or a PC with a mouse,” said Spencer. “But giving developers an option […] with a canvas for creativity has led to the best space in the industry today.”

Further details weren’t confirmed.

    Color me surprised. I always figured KI would be the one “last resort” port for microsoft, the thing they’d keep exclusive until they had to get it away from that system.

    Halo 5 and Gears 4 are still exclusives right?

    This isn’t the death kneel for Xbox One. Same way SFV being on PC is not the death kneel for PS4.

    Now, as long as the ports are not crap (MKX) or earlier versions (any Arc Sys fighter port), then the PC FGC might be strong. Or a reaaaallly viable option

    Scale bound, Crackdown, Recore, Forza (which I like more than Gran Turismo)

    Still some exclusives. Doubt they all go to PC. Unless I see MS can get Shadowrun Returns onto the Xb1 (still own the series’ game rights).

    It keeps getting more viable. Especially with Skullgirls being a great tutorial to fighting game mechanics.

    Cannot fucking wait. I would’ve bought an xbone for this if I’d had the money for a third console and a second stick. So happy to be getting this finally.

    Aren’t most sticks cross platform nowadays?

    This is pretty cool. Killer Instinct is a great fighter with awesome net code, even though I am not a fan of MS at all, if this pushes them more out of the console business and back into the PC market for games… Ya, would mean even more attention for the PC.

    reading the comments here, it still does have a good number of them left
    It’d be a lie to say I wouldn’t like seeing some of those on PC as well

    PC’s are like the Borg of video games, they assimilate everything. :) Even if you don’t give us your exclusives, we’ll emulate them.

    At least the PS4 is only a 400$ paperweight instead of 600$.

    Most japanese games are on Vita or PS3 as well, do it really is just that.

    Hopefully they ditch the God Aweful pricing system and just sell it as a game.

    LOL your salty af if you believe those are the only PS4 exclusives out there.
    This site was clearly made by a sad pc fanboy, he only listed some of the mainstream ones.

    “Most japanese games are on the PS3 or the Vita”

    The only western game that does that as well that I can think of is Helldivers.

    The site lists titles that are only avaiable on that console and nowhere else.
