Amazon Makes A Big Move In Gaming By Partnering With Developer Of A Massive FPS

Amazon’s video game efforts so far have not been entirely successful, with the company’s latest title, Crucible, failing to find an audience and recently returning to closed beta status. Now, Amazon Games is making another big move in gaming by partnering with the Korean developer Smilegate for a new game to be released in 2021.

Smilegate developed the massively popular Crossfire game, which has a breathtaking 670 million registered users and reached a concurrent player record of 8 million people. Building off the success of the game in Korea, Smilegate partnered with Microsoft to bring a console version of the game, CrossfireX, to Xbox One.

Amazon Games boss Christoph Hartman said in a statement that Smilegate is an ideal partner because the company makes the types of “growing online games” that Amazon is trying to develop.

In addition to this mysterious new project with Smilegate, Amazon Games is developing multiple MMOs, including New World and The Lord of the Rings. The company is also working on “several unannounced projects.”

Amazon’s new game with Smilegate will be published in North America and Europe. Financial terms of the deal between Amazon and Smilegate were not announced.
