Amazon has acquired California’s Double Helix Games, developers of the Xbox One favorite, Killer Instinct. Amazon is beefing up its game strategy and snatched up Double Helix “as part of ‘our’ ongoing commitment to build innovative games for customers.”
Curiously, no financial information regarding this deal has surfaced. Amazon is also not talking about whether their own game stratagem for this deal may have been done for the purpose of acquiring the actual talent of the gaming studio, aquihiring — as the trend goes — Double Helix personnel.
