Amazon has verified that it has slashed off “dozens” of game creators from Amazon Game Studios in the middle of a reorganization. The firm has reportedly suspended some unannounced titles, as per media reports.
The slashing follows at the end of last week E3 in LA, and a spokesperson of Amazon claimed to the media that Amazon Game Studios is reorganizing some of our groups to let us prioritize the growth of Crucible, New World, and new spontaneous titles that we are excited to disclose in the future.”
The firm did not say how many individuals the layoff impacted, and as per media sources, it also terminated some unannounced titles.
Amazon established its gaming department in 2014, buying developer Double Helix, hired designers Clint Hocking and Kim Swift (although in 2017 and in 2015 they left the firm), and started operating on a PC game. More lately, Amazon concluded development on an undeclared game Breakaway and may have started operating on some kind of cloud gaming offering.
On a related note, Amazon’s social network, Amazon Spark, has apparently closed down after just a couple of years. If you do not even know what it is, we do not hold you responsible. You can think of it as the version by Amazon for Instagram, except it was never quite as popular and aims on shopping discovery. Users can tag items on their posts obtainable on Amazon since the offering is particularly targeted at Prime users. As media has noted, the service has disappeared from the Internet’s face, with the page URL now taking the users to the latest #FoundItOnAmazon page.
The media has also observed that Spark is no longer a swipe away from the navigation menu of the mobile site. Amazon no longer displays Spark updates as it used to do before and went back to employing a hamburger menu.
