Amazon hiring for ‘ambitious PC game’

Fire TV looks as if it may not be the final frontier for Amazon Game Studios.

A job listing from the company on Gamasutra suggests that the developer is working on a new PC title.

The team is made of former Portal, World of Warcraft and BioShock creators, and we're building a team of top talent for an ambitious new PC game project using the latest technology,” it says.

Our team in Seattle has worked on a lot of other great titles like Half Life 2, Left for Dead, Dota 2, Halo, Infamous, Shadows of Mordor and The Last of Us.

If you want to be on the tip of the spear for game design and technology, contact us. We want people that are driven to make the best games in the industry. We're looking to take interesting risks, and invent.”

Amazon last year hired on Portal lead Kim Swift and Far Cry 2 designer Clint Hocking to join its internal game studio. It is also rumoured to have signed a licensing deal for Crytek's CryEngine, although this has not yet been officially confirmed.
