All of you will be happy to know that Amazon ends the development of Crucible, Amazon’s first major video game while highlighting the online retailer’s continued struggle to make headway in the industry.
This is what most gamers have been waiting for and they are more than excited to know that the development of the first big-budget, as well as the major video game of Amazon, is put to an end.
Amazon leaves people with highlighting the fact of online retailer’s consistent hard work for making progress in the overall industry. On Friday, the e-commercial giant said in a blog post, “We didn’t see a healthy, sustainable future ahead of Crucible.”
The blog post also informs all the customers that they will get their refund amounts. It also added that the team that was working on this project will now move to other upcoming games for the development process.
Crucible, as you all know can be seen as a key test for the game division of Amazon which was established way back in 2012. It is sure that you must know the launch of this game was a disaster as most people have given negative reviews to it.
Later on, Amazon did make the game an invite-only closed beta after a month of its disastrous launch. Before some time of releasing the Crucible game, the company has to cancel another game which was announced previously.
Some reports also claim that the company has to cut some employee jobs in the games unit after the game launched in May got negative reviews.
Amazon wrote in the blog post, “This has been a labor of love, and we’re grateful for the time we got to spend on planet Crucible with you”. Now, the Crucible development team will be focussing on another original game “New World”.
As you know that the development of Crucible has ended, the team will be working on the next major game. Amazon did inform earlier this year that it will release the New World game in August month.
But later on, the release date of the New World game was postponed to Spring 2021. Gamers are hoping to play Amazon’s Crucible very soon.
