Amazon Game Studios’ Greg Henninger hints about big news coming soon – is it New World?

Is Amazon Game Studios finally about to take the lid off of New World? Maybe, maybe not, but this might be a clue: AGS’ Greg Henninger’s tweet a few days ago sure seems to suggest something’s going on with the company.

“About to go off the air for the next 7 days,” he says. “I am bursting at the seams to tell you all everything I’m currently working on. That day will come soon.”

We noted that Henninger, who was at one point the Daybreak Community Manager for H1Z1, had left Daybreak and moved to AGS back in April. At the time, we assumed he’d gone to John Smedley’s team there, given that it was Smed who’d retweeted it, though Smed is reportedly working on a very different game from New World. So then why do we think it might be New World? Because AGS was reportedly having influencers to the studio to playtest the game earlier this month, possibly signaling that it’s about to break its silence. Order some extra popcorn!

Update: Awww, so maybe not SOON SOON. But still…

I kind of get the sense that you really have no people inside these companies? What kind of journalism is this?

Influencers?

So, your product can’t stand on its own merit? Gotta con/pay some fanbois to overhype it for ya?

I wouldn’t call flying people out and putting them up for a night or two in Seattle necessarily ‘cheap’

Hype for undisclosed/unknown hype. o.o

What else could it be besides New World?

If what little we’ve heard of this game is true, I just can’t see it appealing to me.

Playing as a European going to the Americas and battling the “evil, occult natives”? Sounds a little too close to the colonialist sins of history to me; not sins I fantasize about repeating in a game.

My opinions, anyway,

It’s called “bringing the light of civilization to the primitives”.

That was the excuse used, yes. Notable how brutal and uncivilized the self-designated “civilizers” typically behaved, however.

I guess PR existed from the dawn of humanity

That’s not the game is about.From what I understand it is a littel more “Secret World’ish” in that what you are combating are all of the myths and legends that have come to life.
I saw nothing in the descriptions about coming to conquer the new world

Fair enough. I’ll wait until we know more about the actual game before I make any decisions on it.

Thanks for the clarification,

Be well!

Again. Not a culture.
Nevermind i give up. Hopefully some people know the diference between mythology and real life
