An agreement has been signed between Amazon Games and South Korea-based developer Smilegate RPG, the people behind Crossfire, which will result in the release of a game out in 2021.
The unnamed release is to be published exclusively by Amazon Games in North America and Europe, with very little other details to go on. More information on the game developed by the Crossfire developer will be released in the upcoming months, but for the time being, here is an excerpt from the press release:
“Amazon Games is committed to bringing our customers the most engaging game experiences, both through our own internal development teams and from the very best external development studios around the world,” said Christoph Hartmann, VP, Amazon Games. “Smilegate has a strong track record of creating big games that players love, built to offer years of enjoyment — exactly the type of best-in-class, living, growing online games we want to bring our customers.”
