Despite coming onto the scene with a flurry of prospective titles, Amazon Game Studios has yet to really make a great impression on the game genre. The studio is down to only two known prospective titles on the horizon: Crucible and New World.
It’s this second game that’s of particular interest to MMORPG players, as a lot of hopes hang on Amazon to wield a robust, big-budget title in this day and age. Recent alleged trailer leaks have kept the buzz going, and while we wait for more solid official information, we can at least take solace that the studio continues to hire for the project.
Amazon’s career page has a listing for a software development manager for New World, a position that will “work within the game team and collaborate with external technical teams to affect the future of online gaming.” It’s not an overtly thrilling listing, to be sure, but it is kind of neat to see the studio state the elevator pitch for the game and to see hints that development continues.
