Nylund joins Amazon Game Studios

Written by David Stellmack

Says something cool is brewing

Former Microsoft Games Studios and Sci-fi author Eric Nylund has joined Amazon Game Studios. He has accepted the position of Director of Narrative Desgin at the company. Nylund confirmed this on his LinkedIn profile which included a picture of his new business card.

Nylund is known best for his work with the Halo and groundwork he laid for the Gears of War story and world. He says that he can’t talk about the specifics, but he would not be there if there unless something cool was brewing.

Nylund is among the long list of talent that has flocked to the new Amazon Game Studio. While sources tell us as we told you before that the online retailer is planning an Andoid powered console for release this holiday season that is fed by Amazon’s own story and content. Amazon his yet to confirm this is the case, but it is expected to do so soon.

Amazon getting into developing its own gaming content is an interesting play for the online retailer, but many thought that the Kindle was a risk when it was released as well and it has gone on to do well for the company and it is thought that this is the next evolution for Amazon to control both the hardware and the software which if successful could be a very good thing for the online retailer.
