Amazon has bought Californian studio Double Helix, the developer of Killer Instinct for Xbox One and the upcoming multiplatform Strider reboot.

"Amazon has acquired Double Helix as part of our ongoing commitment to build innovative games for customers," the retailer told TechCrunch in a statement.

The Killer Instinct franchise, meanwhile, will remain at Microsoft.

"We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Double Helix and wish them success in their next endeavour," a Microsoft spokesperson told Polygon.

"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."

Amazon is expected to launch an Android console later this year. The acquisition of Double Helix will considerably strengthen the company’s internal development resources.
