It would seem Irvine, California based Double Helix Games, the studio behind Silent Hill: Homecoming, Killer Instinct, and the upcoming Strider, has just been gobbled up by Amazon.
The report initially surfaced on TechCrunch, where details on the deal were revealed that include the developer’s team as well as its intellectual properties. This follows recent reports on Amazon’s plans to launch a video game console that would directly compete with Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. If that’s true, having a AAA developer like Double Helix in their arsenal would certainly help.
“Amazon has acquired Double Helix as part of our ongoing commitment to build innovative games for customers.” the company wrote in a statement confirming the acquisition. No word yet on how much the deal was worth or what this means for Killer Instinct — we’ll update when we know more.
