Amazon Games increasingly in crisis, new mass layoffs also for Twitch

The list of companies cutting staff in the world of video games continues to grow considerably, as do companies like Amazon Games which see their situation worsening and resort to other mass layoffs for a total of 180 people, including people linked to Twitch.\r\nThe division that launched New World among others (you can find it… on Amazon) seems to be increasingly in difficulty, and it’s not even the first time we’ve talked about it just this year.\r\nAlready last April Amazon Games had made a significant crackdown, with 100 people removed from the company with a view to restructuring the workforce.\r\nThe crisis for Amazon Games seems to continue because, as reported by Aftermath, many others have been removed people within the gaming division.\r\nPrecisely 180 people were let go, including the entire Crown Channel, an Amazon-backed Twitch channel, and the Game Growth team, with the broader goal of refocusing efforts on Prime Gaming.\r\nAfter the spread of the indiscretion by sources familiar with the matter, confirmation arrived from Amazon, which provided a copy of the internal email received by the employees, in which the mass dismissal by Christoph was communicated Hartmann, Vice President of Amazon Games:\r\n\r\n«We’ve listened to our customers and know that offering free games every month is what they want most, so we’re refining our Prime benefit to increase our focus on this I wait. These changes in our business approach are accompanied by changes in our resources, resulting in the elimination of just over 180 roles,” wrote Christoph Hartmann, vice president of Amazon Games, in the email to employees.”\r\n\ r\n«It’s never nice to say goodbye to colleagues», continues Hartmann: «This is not a decision that the management team arrived at quickly; it was the result of extensive considerations and a road map for our future.»\r\nThe period that was nothing short of dark for the sector continues, paradoxically while Amazon itself had announced a new MMO dedicated to The Lord of the Rings.
