Clint Hocking isn't the only high-profile member of Amazon Game Studios to leave the developer.
GameSpot reports that two other big names have also exited – principal game designer Jonathan Hamel and director of narrative design Eric Nylund. There has not yet been any official comment or reason given for any of the departures.
Amazon showcased a range of titles last year and in June began advertising for developers for what it described as an ambitious PC game”. It is also rumoured to have signed a licensing deal to use Crytek's CryEngine.
