Amazon's really pushing its way into the video game space with the recent announcement of its Android-based Fire TV console and now it's been confirmed that Far Cry 2 lead Clint Hocking and Portal designer Kim Swift have joined the company that was once primarily an online bookstore.
Swift was previously at Airtight games where she made the first-person puzzler Quantum Conundrum and the Ouya-exclusive viking-meets-funk rhythm/action game Soul Fjord.
Hocking's trajectory has been a bit more mysterious. He was best known as the man behind Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, but after wrapping up Far Cry 2 he left Ubisoft to work at LucasArts. He never shipped a game there - and given the studio's acquisition by Disney it appears that whatever he worked on will likely never see the light of day - and he left in June 2012. He then moved on to Valve for a year and a half, where he may or may not have worked on the rumoured Left 4 Dead 3, before departing in December 2013.
