“But I wouldn’t be there unless something cool was brewing.”
Writer of Gears of War and Halo: Reach, Eric Nylund has recently disclosed that he has taken up a new job as Director of Narrative Design at Amazon Game Studios. Nylund had earlier left Microsoft Games in July, and had not mentioned anything about a new job until a facebook posting revealed a business card with Amazon Game Studios printed on the front.
“I can’t talk about specifics,” Nylund said. “But I wouldn’t be there unless something cool was brewing.” It’s hard to make out where exactly Amazon Game Studio is headed as they do not have games which rank alongside Halo and Gears of War franchise.
It’s going to be quite interesting to watch how Nylund takes it from here, whether he will stick to the usual stuff that Amazon are used, which is mobile and casual games, or will he pull out another blockbuster type game, which is widely known for.
