Killer Instinct has been confirmed as a March 2016 release and Windows 10 exclusive

In a recent interview with Adam Isgreen over on Twitch (04:07:30 timestamp) it was confirmed that Killer Instinct will be coming to PC this March as a Windows 10 elusive, much like the Gears of War Ultimate Edition.

While he didn't give an exact release date he did verify some rumors and gave us a bit of information on what to expect from Killer Instinct's season 3 once it hits the PC. 

Here's everything that's been confirmed so far, courtesy of this Reddit thread which complied all of the interviews and comments:

Rumors that have been confirmed

- It will release in March 2016

- It is Windows 10 exclusive

- An updated Dojo Tutorial

- Tusk and Kim Wu have been confirmed to appear at launch and both will have retro costumes

- More characters will be available at launch than there were in the launch of Season 2. The remaining few will be available in the coming months.

- Everyone on the roster will have tweaks to help balance the game to compensate for the new features and mechanics being introduced in Season 3

New information that has been confirmed

- Two characters that are currently on the roster will be re-worked. That means their set ups and how they gain meter will be different. It is confirmed that these two characters are not Glacius, Aganos, or Shadow Jago.

- Although Ultimates for every character isn't confirmed, it is possible for all the characters to receive Ultimates due to the tech they developed when they created ARIA.

- They will reveal more information at Pax South in San Antonio, TX sometime between January 29-31

- There will be more community bundles in Season 3 due to the success of the Shadow Jago Fund Raiser. The purpose of the Fund Raisers will be determined by the community on what they want to see in Season 3 that didn't make the cut by launch. So if you want to see a certain guest character, stage, mode, feature, ect. that didn't make the cut, make yourself heard. They are actively seeking out the community's input. 

Its also worth mentioning that Killer Instinct will have cross-play between the Xbox version and the PC one making this one of the very few exceptions Microsoft has ever done to their "no crossplay" rule. Another cool feature is that your purchases are cross-platform as well so anything you bought on the console will transfer to PC and vice versa.

That's it as far as current information goes, if anything more shows up I'll make sure to keep you updated.
