Some of the biggest names from Siege are jumping over into the smile squad.

Amazon is still on a mission to make games, despite the fact it’s yet to release one (we don’t talk about that free-to-play shooter) and wants to recruit a few big names to help.

Marquis said the prior Siege devs were”excited to begin with a blank page and the creative freedom to create a completely distinctive knowledge from the multiplayer arena,” after eight years focusing on the tactical shooter. “From our first argument, we felt a genuine connection with those at Amazon Games, their strategy to gambling and the sheer amount of knowledge, expertise and technology available there. It is fairly humbling and we couldn’t be more enthusiastic to begin a studio together.”

Now we’ll have to wait and see whether yet another studio can turn things around for Amazon. The company’s attempts to tap into the games market thus far have been, quite honestly, pretty damn dire. Apart from Crucible’s dreadful launch after which derelease, MMO New World has been pushed back 3 times now.

Recently appointed Amazon CEO Andy Jassy is optimistic though, telling team before this year”though we haven’t consistently succeeded yet in AGS, I think we will if we hang in there”
