Crucible, what was going to be the first major consumer video game released by Amazon, is no longer being developed, according to the company.
“We didn’t see a healthy, sustainable future ahead of Crucible,” Amazon said in a blog post. The team working on the project will be moved to other upcoming games and customers will get refunds, according to Bloomberg.
The game was seen as a key test for Amazon’s games division. It was initially launched in May to horrid reviews and Amazon made it an invite-only closed beta game. Developing original games is a part of Amazon’s strategy to break into video games; they own the live-streaming service Twitch and also recently announced plans for a subscription video game streaming service.
