Amazon's cloud powering secret new Fire TV game project

Amazon will use its cloud technology to handle thousands of characters on screen at once for an ambitious new game on its Fire TV.

Discussing the recently revealed microconsole in a new interview with Develop Amazon's VP of games Mike Frazzini teased a new title by the retail giant that has now gone into full development.

He said while the amount of physics and AI the development team is trying to achieve would usually “require a high-end gaming PC”, it would be running part of the title in the Amazon cloud to unlock more horsepower beyond the hardware’s own limitations.

Develop has more details.
