The biggest online retailer, Amazon announced that it’s currently looking for the best game designers to develop a new PC game.
The announcement was made by Amazon’s senior designer Kim Swift, who posted an ad on LinkedIn, saying that Amazon Game Studios is currently seeking highly-trained game developers for a new PC game that will be made produced using the latest technology.
Swift posted the job ad on May 26, but it wasn’t until the popular Gamasutra site published an article about Amazon’s new intention the news gained widespread.
The job posting said that Amazon is looking for developers whose goals are to design and produce the best games in the industry.
The ad also read that Amazon Game Studios wants to invent and is not afraid of taking “interesting risks”.
Swift wrote in his post that the development team is located in Seattle and has been working on a new project for some time.
Some of the developers have been involved in the creation of cult games like Half Life 2, World of Warcraft, Left for Dead, Dota 2, Infamous, Halo, The Last of U.S, Shadows of Mordor and others.
Swift, who has worked for Airtight Games and Valve in the past, has also been part of the team who created games like BioShock and Portal.
Amazon’s team of game developers includes Clint Hocking, one of the designers of Splinter Cell and Far Cry.
With this recent announcement, Amazon will attempt to expand its business in the PC game field.
So far, Amazon has only been involved in the creation of mobile games.
One of those games is the horror games called Til Morning’s Light, which has received both critical and commercial acclaim.
According to game experts, Til Morning’s Light was more ambitious than a lot of mobile games and it looks like Amazon is trying to do the same with its first PC game.
Last August, the company purchased Twitch, a game streaming service, which cost the giant retailer more than $970 million.
Also, Amazon bought Double Helix, the gaming company that developed popular games like Killer Instinct.
Last year, Amazon launched the Fire TV, which can also be used to play games on TV.
The company notes that the developers will use platforms like Twitch and AWS Cloud to revolutionize game play.
Amazon is hoping that in the future it will develop some of the “most influential voices in media and art.”
