Amazon Cancels Games, Lays Off Developers

A report on Kotaku has word that Amazon Game Studios has cancelled some unannounced games and laid off "dozens of employees," offering severance packages if they fail to find other positions within the company within 60 days. The layoffs, but not the cancellations, are confirmed in an official response they received from Amazon to their queries about this:
“Amazon Game Studios is reorganizing some of our teams to allow us to prioritize development of New World, Crucible, and new unannounced projects we’re excited to reveal in the future,” an Amazon spokesperson said in a statement. “These moves are the result of regular business planning cycles where we align resources to match evolving, long-range priorities. We’re working closely with all employees affected by these changes to assist them in finding new roles within Amazon. Amazon is deeply committed to games and continues to invest heavily in Amazon Game Studios, Twitch, Twitch Prime, AWS, our retail businesses, and other areas within Amazon.”
