  • Amazon Game Studios a licencié plusieurs dizaines d'employés

Que ce soit dans le domaine du développement ou à travers son très peu courtisé moteur Lumberyard, Amazon Game Studios occupe cependant une place toujours aussi fantomatique dans le milieu, même 10 mois après l'arrivée de Christoph Hartmann (fondateur de 2K Games) en qualité de vice-président des studios.

Amazon Game Studios, filiale du géant de la distribution en ligne dédiée à la création de jeux vidéo, a décidé d'annuler certains projets qui n'avaient pas encore été annoncés (dont Breakaway) et de licencier en conséquence des dizaines de développeurs. " New World et Crubicle sont, pour rappel, les jeux AAA en développement chez Amazon, ayant bénéficié d'un financement supérieur à 50 millions de dollars". Plusieurs projets annexes d'Amazon Game Studios auraient également été annulés, mais le groupe confirme le maintien des équipes et le développement de Crucible et New World.
