Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has praised the success of its recently released MMO New World, which is getting a lot of praise despite players having some major launch issues with the game. However, Bezos has harsh words for previous Amazon games such as Crucible – labelling them “failures and setbacks”.
Amazon Game Studios’ first MMO New World released earlier this week and has been an immediate success, breaking player count records all over the place but suffering as a result – players are still facing long queueing times, but fortunately Amazon promises to sort those out soon by adding extra servers. It’s the complete opposite to Amazon’s previous game Crucible, which was shut down for having too few players not long after launch.
Entrepreneur and Amazon chief Jeff Bezos took to Twitter to praise the team at Amazon Game Studios and New World’s release, saying “after many failures and setbacks in gaming we have a success” and “so proud of the team for the persistence.”
