  • 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.

Ces changements sont le résultat de cycles de planification des activités, dans lesquels nous alignons les ressources sur les priorités évolutives à long terme. Nous travaillons avec les salariés concernés pour les aider à trouver un nouveau poste chez Amazon.

"Amazon s'engage pleinement dans les jeux et continue d'investir lourdement dans Amazon Game Studios, Twitch, Twitch Prime, AWS, notre activité commerciale et d'autres secteurs au sein d'Amazon", a déclaré un porte-parole. À ce jour, on ne sait pas combien exactement de personnes sont concernées par ces suppressions de postes sur les 800 employés que compte la filiale aux États-Unis, répartis sur trois sites (Irvine, San Diego et Seattle).
