Amazon acquires Killer Instinct developer Double Helix Games, development on titles will continue

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • February 5, 2014 at 7:02 p.m. PST

Updated: We've updated this story with some quotes from Microsoft's Phil Spencer about the future of Killer Instinct.

In a move many people probably didn't see coming, Amazon, the world's largest online retailer, has acquired Double Helix Games, the development studio behind the new Killer Instinct on Xbox One.

While Amazon's deal includes both staff and intellectual property, it's important to note that Microsoft owns the Killer Instinct franchise, as DHG were the developers on this title.

Amazon issued this short statement about the acquisition, hit the jump to continue reading.

"Amazon has acquired Double Helix as part of our ongoing commitment to build innovate games for customers."

Double Helix Games currently employs 75 people, and they will continue to work out of their Orange County office.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Amazon noted that Double Helix Games' current lineup of titles, and other future developments will continue to be supported though, so fans worried that they'd drop Killer Instinct development should rest a little easier.

Microsoft's Phil Spencer had this to say about the matter. Some have speculated that Amazon may be working on their own video game console, and this acquisition only bolsters those rumors.

The rumor is that Amazon will release a Android-powered machine coming in at under $300, that will compete directly with the PlayStation, Xbox One and Wii U.

Most likely to develop original games for their service, ala Netflix Original ... but games. And on Amazon. Yeah, it's weird and they may just develop a hub like Rare became for Microsoft. Which is ironic since they both worked on KI before being signed as early developers for a new company to enter the gaming world.

Either way, whether their role will be hub developer, go-to promotion developer or 1st party for new service/exclusive titles for Kindle - good for them. I'm sure they got a lot of money.

originalhuman said on February 5, 2014 at 7:09 p.m.

i'm going to assume KI season 2 isn't going to be greenlit after this. the KI developers were being pretty evasive about confirming a season 2, and now we know why.

Well this is certainly unexpected...

#5
Catalyst said on February 5, 2014 at 7:11 p.m.

Amazon did say that development on current and future titles would be supported.

We'll see if they're blowing smoke or not here with time, but I imagine that they'll at least continue to work on KI for awhile.

The game has been quite successful, so there's money to be had there, and fans wanting more.

#6
FinchoMatic said on February 5, 2014 at 7:12 p.m.

They can't confirm a Season 2 until the higher ups say so, it's not because they're being evasive about it. Don't jump to conclusions so early.

Hope they have them make a better game this time around (though that strider game does look sick)

capra said on February 5, 2014 at 7:17 p.m.

they have actually had a pretty poor track record so far, i'm willing to bet the only reason killer instinct is as good as it is, is due to ken lobbs supervision.

of course I could be wrong I thought demon's souls was only as good as it was due to sonys supervision and dark souls proved me wrong.

As long KI and Strider are on track,no biggie.Both projects have made them an extremely attractive commodity to the industry.Amazon developing a console has me interested,to say the least.....O_O

#11
originalhuman said on February 5, 2014 at 7:22 p.m.

theyve gotta be contracted to finish up season 1 and support it with patches, but season 2 is a big question mark at this point. same situation for strider and its inevitable DLC.

Build "innovate" games?

Nothing could possib-lie go wrong...

This is pretty interesting news, though. Hopefully it won't mean anything for KI's season 2. The game has literally the best in-game netcode ever. I'd want to see more. MOAR!

The price is really low relative to PCs, consoles, and even some smart phones. I was thinking it might have less power. How powerful could it be for such a cheap thing?

I'm not buying another gamecube, I don't care how many motion controls or Android marketplaces you stuff into it.

Wrong thread bud. Also it's sad those are dead, but to be totally honest I hadn't even heard about them until today. I'm pretty sure the FGC will survive.

#21
FinchoMatic said on February 5, 2014 at 7:38 p.m.

The part stating that Amazon will continue to support current Double Helix titles is reassuring for Killer Instinct now, but down the line something has to be said by either Double Helix/Microsoft in regards to future content of this game. I'm significantly hoping that somewhere in the contract for working on this game there included something on the line of "working on future content".

But seeing how this looks, this will feed even more to the anti-KI trolls.

#22
thatsmypanda said on February 5, 2014 at 7:40 p.m.

Of course they have to fulfill their contract with KI/Microsoft, but Amazon doesn't care about KI, they'll force them to do the bare minimum. A passion project has turned into an obligation. If MS hands it to another team after s2 it won't be that team's 'baby'. Sad news for KI.

#23

Wardog said on February 5, 2014 at 7:50 p.m.

First the "ouya", then the "Steam machine" and now "Android-powered machine".... Sony and M$ won't be losing any sleep. If Nintendo don't get their stuff straight then they might have a little competition. Besides the Ouya.

The only system, I think can hang with the big boys is the Steam Machine... besides the controller. The deals on their is crazy compare to Sony & M$... the only difference is that they can't get any of the exclusive from Sony & M$ on their system.

#29
ShiroiKaze said on February 5, 2014 at 7:51 p.m.

Right... because the Ouya and Mad Catz MOJO have totally proven the demand for yet another Android powered console.... christ.

Well at the very least maybe we'll see another Earthworm Jim or MDK from back when they used to be Shiny... really the only IPs they own that are worth a damn.

when you beat the story mode, you're gonna get an ad that you can get rid of by buying amazon prime, if you don't buy it. then you watch an ad about why Amazon Prime is such a good deal. Next Gen is so much fun.

Mel_Masters said on February 5, 2014 at 8:02 p.m.

I dont think the realization has hit any of you yet but I will guarantee if Amazon makes a console. It will not be Android based. It will be its own competitive console ala microsoft did with the original xbox. They have a crap ton of money to back up any kind of financial loss they would come to in the high end console market. I see this will only strengthen the gaming market if the Amazon console rumors are true. The real question is what happens when they do release this system will sony and microsoft allow their first party games to be sold on the Amazon website.

#34
EG2 said on February 5, 2014 at 8:05 p.m.

Yes, summed it up very well right here. The quality and future of KI is much more in question now than when DH was not owned by a potential rival console make and it was their baby.

#38
ZenTzen said on February 5, 2014 at 8:16 p.m.

like a previous poster as said their profits have been falling year on year and by the time they put out a console, both sony and ms systems would be too far ahead for them to compete, even 3rd party would rarely release any games on the system, unless truckloads of money, even so sales would be abysmal and theres only so much losses any business can take, also if it is an android based console it would fail just as hard or worse, an android based console simply doesnt work, android gaming should stay where it belongs

Hackstermatrix said on February 5, 2014 at 8:25 p.m.

DH are pretty talented, but all their titles are stuff that was outsourced TO them like KI, Strider etc.

If they are doing a console it better be a steam machine and not this mobile games nonsense. Anyone with common sense will just get a $300 Android phone lol.

Even more ideal would simply be a continuation of what DH already do best: reviving old titles.
With Amazon's deep pockets they can acquire first party rights to some really nice stuff.

If Sony, MS and Nintendo are to become Amazon's competitors, why exactly would they want to support MS by doing anything extra for KI?

If DH is under contract from MS I'm sure you guys will get season 2. But I doubt MS would continue to pay Amazon/DH to handle any development for them beyond that point.

In fact, if the purchase is complete, there is already a huge conflict of interest.

(Of course this theory assumes Amazon really is making a console)

#54
FlynnChop said on February 5, 2014 at 9:47 p.m.

Oh wow. This makes it sound like Double Helix is off the game completely after Season 1, but an internal team might jump in for season 2.

I hope for more and more of KI to happen, but I'd rather see continued development stop than for them to give it to a new group who screws it all up.

I just had the startling realization... if KI suddenly becomes unbalanced and/or unfun, there won't be any going back to "KI Vanilla". The game will literally be ruined. For everyone. Forever.

Scary thought.

#55
FinchoMatic said on February 5, 2014 at 9:50 p.m.

I don't think Ken Lobb would allow that to happen seeing as though he's overseeing the entire game.

#56
Smorgasboard said on February 5, 2014 at 9:55 p.m.

Amazon is building a console to rival the xbox1. Why would they support an xbox1 exclusive title? Double Helix will not be developing KI after season 1. It's simple as that.

nusense said on February 5, 2014 at 10:13 p.m.

Buying up a studio is not always a good idea. Lots of dev jump ship(especially when DH was working with other peoples IP). Happen to bungie, lots of people left for 343 studios. Happen to rare , they formed retro studios.

FinchoMatic said on February 5, 2014 at 10:13 p.m.

20? Wow, that's amazing.

#61
TorTorVega said on February 5, 2014 at 10:17 p.m.

The IP is still Rare's, and thus Microsoft's. But fear not, we'll be seeing it on PC as soon as it stops selling Xboxes. As soon as something new and shiny comes along and KI stops moving units, MS will get greedy and port it to PC. Absolutely no doubt about that.

Then they'll release a sequel which won't see the light of day on PC in order to get people to buy an Xbox One. Because that's what MS does with it's exclusive franchises.

#62
Focusflute said on February 5, 2014 at 10:22 p.m.

Ok Phil only said the internal MS team is staying. OF COURSE HE SAID EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE, HE WANTS HIS PRODUCT TO KEEP MAKING HIM MONEY.

I want DH making this game full force like they have been. DH have created what I feel is the BEST fighting game ever made. I swear we have more character diversity with 7 chars than USF4 or Injustice. The game play is rock solid and truly feels next gen as a fighting game.

The reason this game is so good is the ppl at DH are very, VERY passionate about it. Its their baby. If KI gets pushed onto another studio, its their red headed step child and not as much "love and care" will be put into it. Of course the new studio would say "How much they always loved KI and we want it to be so great, blah, blah"

We can all speculate that MS may try to buy off some of the employees from DH but until we hear anything, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Also don't be surprised when everyone on the MS stream is saying how everything is going to be okay because the MS part of the KI team are still there. DH are the ones that have produced 90% of the product. I know one of the ppl on the MS KI team btw.

Season 2 will obviously happen because KI has made MS money so far. The question is, will MS buy off the DH dev team and make it the amazing game we know they can make OR will it be given to another team.
If they don't get the DH guys, I have my doubts about KI being of the same quality in Season 2+

If I buy a BMW, I don't want it to be made by Ford. Or in this case, 10% made by BMW and 90% by Ford. Hey its still a BMW right? Right?

TheTHCGamer said on February 5, 2014 at 10:54 p.m.

I blame Microsoft for not seizing the opportunity of buying them out but in the other hand it's not always good to be bought out by a developer when you don't know for sure what kindive games there going to have you develop. Case into pint look what Microsoft did with rare but I wish DH the best. Also as stated they will continue work on KI2 and Microsoft had an internal team which I'm pretty sure will be made up of some former DH employees. This is the same thing that happened to Bungie when Activision bought them out and they still had to finish halo reach.

The people now working in the halo games (343 studios) are made up of former Bungie employees. Well see what happens but in my opinion Microsoft really dropped the ball by not buying out DH. When you got a good thing going common sense says you keep it that way as long as possible.

Lol c'mon now USFIV has the biggest changes so far when it comes to SFIV's gameplay and I love KI however it won't have staying power if a season two is released with a decent amount of characters.

#71
hazelnut1112 said on February 5, 2014 at 11:08 p.m.

The thing that sucks about 343 is that the employees are Bungie's scrap staff after Bungie parted from Microsoft. 343 already proved with Halo 4 that they can't be counted as much because of it,majority of them are MS employees and even MS staff are pretty damn incompetent to know what the hell they are doing with their own products. I'm very skeptical about this new Halo since the trailer barely showed anything and hoping after 4 we would be done with it.

#72
TheTHCGamer said on February 5, 2014 at 11:08 p.m.

Lol you wouldn't happen to own a Sony console would you? Let me guess if they made it for PS4 you'd like KI but regardless people should spend quality time playing it before passing judgement.

#73
TheTHCGamer said on February 5, 2014 at 11:10 p.m.

I hate to say it but Bungie messed up themselves with halo reach game was the worst halo in my opinion even worse than 4.

#74
Wardog said on February 5, 2014 at 11:22 p.m.

Let's be honest. SF5 or Alpha 4 should have been here already. This game came out in 2009, its time for Capcom to move on.

#76
TheTHCGamer said on February 5, 2014 at 11:43 p.m.

Thing is it's what the fans want. If your fanbase keep asking for updates or sequels then your only giving them what they want by releasing them. Also I don't think another SF game is a good idea and would get people sick of SF because we all know CAPCOM loves to add characters to there SF updates. I feel that's partly what kept them from making a new SF game for a long time. I loved SF2 but after all the different versions of SF were getting released I'm sure some people were getting burned out. I really want SFV to be made on current gen consoles not the 360 or PS3. I'm not a graphics whore when it comes to fighting games but I do want the next SF game to look like it takes advantage of current gen hardware.

On top of that if it doesn't casual gamers who are graphics whores will just dismiss the game. I don't think CAPCOM should have to release two SF games again when they can feature characters for every past franchise with the exception of the EX games which sucks. Like them or hate them the SF EX games had great character designs.

#77
TheTHCGamer said on February 5, 2014 at 11:45 p.m.

Lol did you read the article? Microsoft owns the rights to KI and DH will now make games exclusively for the new amazon console that will be possibly be released. Wish KI was multiplatform though and if it did happen I'd buy KI again for the PS4.

#78
Wardog said on February 6, 2014 at 12:09 a.m.

"Also I don't think another SF game is a good idea and would get people sick of SF"

Actually that is not true cause it would be a new game and it would be a breath of fresh air. People are getting tired of constant update of an old game,that should have stop a long time ago (Capcom can't please everybody)... SF4 & T6 came out the same year (2009) and Tekken went on with Tag 2 (2012) and TR(2013), while SF4 is still getting updated with little small update here & there. Those extra characters could have went on the next SF game. Its time for Capcom to move on.

Just to let you know I'm not bashing Capcom, I'm just getting tired of them focusing on SF4 and have not by now brought out SF5 or Alpha4. Its 2014 for crying out loud.

#79
Smorgasboard said on February 6, 2014 at 12:14 a.m.

The only reason to buy out a company is to acquire their IP or to remove their competition. Both would not be applicable in this case.

#80
Smorgasboard said on February 6, 2014 at 12:21 a.m.

Why bother with the next SF game when people only want the same old things anyway. Alpha 4? Old characters? Parry?

#81
TheTHCGamer said on February 6, 2014 at 12:22 a.m.

Oh I know your not bashing CAPCOM but I'm just saying I remember a time when there were a lot of SF games on the marke which I feel got people burnt out in SF in general. Actually a lot of people aren't tired if the constant updates and lots of people look forward to them. On top of that companies like CAPCOM aren't going to take risks and build to many fighting games from the ground up for such a niche market. I hate to say it but fighting games even the best selling ones really don't sell well compared to other genres. Also lets be real CAPCOM made some bad investments last gen which even more so pits them in a place where they have to be a little more cautious of how they invest there money.

You brought up TTT2 but namco was actually disappointed with the sales figures for that game especially after all the effort that was put into it. Then what happens the next tekken game is free to play which is find but I prefer my games to be complete with DLC added to it. Also these updates are pretty much tradition for the SF games so they should be expected and the same thing applies for developers like ASW. If fighting games were popular like they once were there's no doubt CAPCOM would most likely have released more fighting games.

Times are different we have to be more patient now but the good thing is more developers are releasing fighting games.

#82
cuzzo said on February 6, 2014 at 12:25 a.m.

I wouldn't say to remove competition per se, more like capitalism. DH just revived a classic game out of no where and helped score big for MS as far as console sales go and received generally positive reviews for it. so naturally Amazon saw that DH was available and jumped at the chance to have them exclusively. will it pay off? I guess we'll see, I hope KI will get all it deserves its been a long time coming after all and a lot has been promised. amazon if you screw this up.......

#83
Mike_Z said on February 6, 2014 at 12:37 a.m.

Acquisitions like this aren't based on one game, they're based on what tech and resources the company has and whether the larger company thinks those are worthwhile to whatever business plan it has. More often than not performance of the games has little to do with it.

#84
Kawalorn said on February 6, 2014 at 12:47 a.m.

Funny how Double Helix was generally disliked until KI because of their less-than-good games. :P I'm really happy for them. For me KI s still the only Xbox One exclusive worth a damn.

#85
ZenTzen said on February 6, 2014 at 12:54 a.m.

"We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Double Helix and wish them success in their next endeavor," a Microsoft spokesperson said. "We want all of our loyal fans to know that the Killer Instinct team at Microsoft is not changing and that the franchise will remain with Microsoft Studios. We remain dedicated to delivering a great experience and plan to announce our new development partner soon. We're excited about the future of this popular franchise."

the KI team is James Goddard, Adam Isgreen and Daniel Fornace

how does that bode for the future of KI

Man I'm not optimistic about this acquisition at all. I want double helix to work on season 2 no one else :(

Actually if you watch the behind the scenes devblog, it reveals that up until KI they kept getting lumbered with rushed movie tie in crap, pretty much against their will.
I'll be sad to see another studio brought in for season 2, if it actually appears...

So....you have access to the EXACT amount of money they have? Im sure you dont. Guess what Apples "profits" have been dramatically falling for the past 2 years and nothing has changed. Youre statement is trash and crap.

Thats why I said it wouldnt be an android based console system. I never said when it would be released I just said IF they did this is what they would do.

Unless this means KI is coming to PC, I couldn't possibly give less of a ****.

something tells me these rights are gonna allow it to be developed for PS4 as well. I don't know how but there's probably some fine print somewhere that makes this possible. We just gotta wait and see now.

Regardless the game is still gonna be developed more. It's just like when Activision became partnered with Blizzard. Or disney aquireing Marvel. The products still get produced.

I just have this hunch a PS4 announcment will be coming.

Whats even more funny is that if it's an android os system. Microsoft will get a cut of every consoled sold. MS makes 2 billion plus of android os base phone\tablets.
