8 June, 2015

Amazon has posted a job listing on Gamasutra to recruit qualified and driven individuals for an “ambitious new PC game project using the latest technology.” They have already acquired some great veterans of the gaming industry onto the team.

With this public job advertisement, it looks like the largest internet-based retailer in the US is ready to take on already well-established AAA game development companies. Amazon has been building a team of game developers for over a year now and so far they already have veteran creators who have worked on BioShock, Portal, and World of Warcraft. Their current team has also worked on games such as Dota 2, Half-Life 2, Halo, InFAMOUS, The Last of Us, Left 4 Dead, and Middle-earth: Shadows of Mordor. These are all fantastic AAA titles that have each done very well.

Kim Swift, Senior Designer at Amazon, has made a post on Linkedin listing specific roles that they are looking for:

  • UI/UX Designer
  • Combat Designer
  • Level Designers
  • Sr. Level Designer
  • Sr. Economy Designer
  • Sr. Tools Engineer
  • Tools Engineer
  • Sr. Gameplay Engineer

The company will be using Twitch, which they acquired for $970 million in cash, and the AWS cloud service to create the game. Tell us your opinion in the comments section below.
