It’s been several years since we saw the last Killer Instinct game, but if developer Iron Galaxy had its way, that would change soon.
Speaking with Segment Next in a recent interview, Iron Galaxy general manager Shekhar Dhupelia said the team has always wanted to continue working on Killer Instinct but needs the right opportunity to do so.
“We loved working on Killer Instinct, and we had a great time supporting that community,” Dhupelia said. “They still ask us to update that experience every day on social media and we really appreciate the enduring enthusiasm.
Like any other opportunity that comes our way, if KI ever presented itself again, we’d consider it.”

So it seems safe to say Iron Galaxy’s next project probably won’t be a new Killer Instinct game.
However, the team is working on a new next-gen project, and Dhupelia said Iron Galaxy will share more about it later this year.
Whether that’s at E3 2021 or a different, independent event, he didn’t say.
It’s been five years since the last Killer Instinct content and almost 10 since Killer Instinct on Xbox One.
In other words, Killer Instinct is long overdue for a new game.
