While Amazon launched their Fire TV games and set up top box in April of last year, the more interesting tidbit of news was the fact that Amazon had entered the games development business.

The global retailer also purchased the Killer Instinct reboot co-developer, Double Helix, however, they’re now hiring for their first PC game. While details are currently scant, we know that the publisher is looking to add to their existing team, which they boast has former Portal, World of Warcraft and BioShock developers.

The company touts the new game as an “ambitious new PC game” that uses “the latest technology.” The new development studio isn’t named, but we know they’re based out of Seattle. There’s even a direct hiring manager’s contact information, in case you’re a developer looking for work.

We’ll keep you guys posted.
