Amazon Game Studios, which is currently developing the online games Crucible and New World, told affected employees on Thursday morning that they would have 60 days to look for new positions within Amazon, according to one person who was laid off. At the end of that buffer period, if they fail to find employment, they will receive severance packages.


Amazon also canceled some unannounced games, that person told Kotaku.

 

The company wouldn’t say exactly how many employees it laid off, but confirmed the news when reached by Kotaku today.

 

“Amazon Game Studios is reorganizing some of our teams to allow us to prioritize development of New World, Crucible, and new unannounced projects we’re excited to reveal in the future,” an Amazon spokesperson said in a statement. “These moves are the result of regular business planning cycles where we align resources to match evolving, long-range priorities. 

 

Double Helix (Killer Instinct) is part of Amazon Game Studios.

Iron Galaxy took over for them so this doesn't really mean anything in regards to Killer Instinct.

I'm talking about who's affected and what the dev is associated with.
