A new teaser was recently released on the Killer Instinct official YouTube channel, showing a battle between the Halo franchise’s Spartans and Elites. The teaser ends with the signature crack of an Energy Sword and the Killer Instinct logo.
Fan speculation over whether an unnamed Spartan or an Elite would be joining the fight was cut short, when Microsoft’s Head of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg confirmed the Arbiter was coming to finish the fight!

This isn’t the first time the Halo franchise has spilled over into the world of fighting games, with a quasi-canonical Spartan named Nicole-358 appearing Dead or Alive 4.
Killer Instinct Season 3 is expected to start in March but no solid date has been announced yet.
