Amazon Working on “Ambitious” PC Game
Years after expanding its commerce business to cloud web services and hardware products, the web retail giant is now moving into the competitive world of PC video games. Revealed in a series of recruitment ads for game site Gamasutra, the Seattle-based company has already hired veterans from well-known titles such as Portal, World of Warcraft and Bioshock. It also revealed the unnamed project will use Amazon Web Services and incorporate the video game replay site Twitch, which it acquired last year. Jeff Bezos’ company has made smaller mobile games before but none for bigger systems.
