Halo Writer Eric Nylund Joins Amazon Game Studios

Eric Nylund, former writer and story consultant for Microsoft Game Studios on the Halo series, has shifted allegiances and now works for the newly established Amazon Game Studios as its Director of Narrative Design.

Nylund, who penned four books in the acclaimed Halo series, in addition to his work on the franchise in general, says that something cool is in the works at the new company.

“I can’t talk about specifics, but I wouldn’t be there unless something cool was brewing,” wrote Nylund on his Facebook page, where he posted a picture of his new business card.

The high-profile acquisition suggests that something big is indeed in the works at Amazon Game Studios, where the company has been rumored to be working on its own video game console.
