Amazon buys game developer Double Helix Games

Earlier this week there were rumors that Amazon is developing its own Android-based video game console and now we hear that Amazon has bought Double Helix Games, the developer of Killer Instinct. Asked for a statement, Amazon explained that it "has acquired Double Helix as part of our ongoing commitment to build innovative games for customers."
Amazon has acquired a gaming studio called Double Helix Games, TechCrunch has learned, and Amazon now confirms. The deal was for both talent and IP, we understand. Financial terms have not been disclosed.

The Irvine, California-based company, founded in 2007 through the merger of two well-known game development shops, The Collective, Inc. and Shiny Entertainment, today employs 75 people who will now become Amazon employees and will continue to operate out of their Orange County home.
