Well my friends, there is no easy way to say this, it's time for Killer Instinct Gaming to sign out of Xbox Live.
Yes, you are reading it correctly, we are closing our doors. After five and half years of gaming awesomeness it is time to close this chapter and move on to whatever the future has in store.
Looking back, KIG holds a lot of fond memories and we have accomplished some pretty incredible things. From starting out with roughly 15 members in April of 2009 to growing to at one point over a thousand strong all in the name of enjoying a better gaming experience. Having enjoyed the majority of that time on the Call of Duty franchise, we spanned a total of 7 titles starting with the original modern warfare. Over the years we have seen KIG host several competitive teams, hold many a tournament, and create awesome videos that will echo through YouTube for eternity.
Thank you all for doing your best to uphold the standards of KIG and for contributing towards making this community feel like home. You all are what made this place great. As you move on to whatever new gaming experiences await you, we hope that you can remember your time here fondly and take with you our ideals to continue making XBL a better place.
Rise to a Higher Standard.
Killer Instinct Gaming
April 2009 - October 2014
