In a move that will shock no one, Amazon Game Studios has apparently hired former ArenaNet
director Colin Johanson in an unspecified role. That or someone’s hacked his Linkedin
to say that he’s been employed there since April.
Johanson left the Guild Wars 2 team in March, telling fans he’d taken an opportunity that allowed him to better support his wife’s career, see his family more, and cut his commute to nothing.
Amazon has been scooping up MMORPG developers all year, particularly from Seattle-based ArenaNet, prompting speculation about the type of games it’s working on. It’s announced it’ll release more information on one of those later this month.
