Double Helix Games, developer of Killer Instinct, has reportedly been acquired by Amazon, according to TechCrunch.
Though the financial terms were not disclosed, the report claims the acquisition was for both intellectual property and talent, of which there are 75 employees. The information was reportedly made public through an invitation to a joint recruiting event between the two companies scheduled for next week in Los Angeles.
The deal would strongly reinforce rumors Amazon is intending to release its own Android-based game console, though the company already has its own game studio. Amazon Games Studio has thus far developed Air Patriots, a tower defense title for iOS and Android devices.
