Amazon Games Studio was founded in 2012. It opened the Amazon Appstore and began to hire developers for mobile social games. In 2012, it released Living Classics, which was a Facebook social game. The firm has three game development offices in Seattle, San Diego, and Orange Country. Amazon Game Studios wanted to create groups of five to thirty individuals with an emphasis on "creativity" and "craftsmanship," whether the style is for children or casual players, focusing on games for approximately a year and 18 months. In September 2016, the company launched its first three games, which are called Crucible, Breakaway, and New World, after the studio's first announcement. Amazon has everything in it on games. At Amazon Game Studios, they believe that evolution, evolving into today's live streams and sports, will progress into a future where everyone is a gamer, and each player will be able to develop, compete, interact and connect significantly with others. Its game teams in Seattle, Irvine, and San Diego are designing games to build bold new game experience using Twitch and AWS power.
