Breakaway, Crucible and New World are the bring Amazon into eSports, shooter and MMO spaces

Amazon Game Studio’s debut titles revealed

After what feels like a long period of pretty significant investment, we finally know what the first big projects to emerge from Amazon Game Studio will look like.

Leading the lineup is Breakaway, an eSports orientated 4×4 team “sports brawler” which seems tailor made to try and make the most of Amazon’s $1bn Twitch acquisition. It’s being developed by Double Helix, which was acquired by Amazon after its work on Microsoft’s Killer Instinct reboot.

This title will also be the first to feature Twitch’s new Stream+. This allows participants to gamble on the outcome of encounters and earn virtual currency by watching. How closely this will sail to the extremely sensitive stream gambling winds remains to be seen.

MCV has the full story.
