Halo writer joins Amazon
Prolific novelist and 13-year Microsoft veteran Eric Nylund now director of narrative design at Amazon Game Studios.
Halo novelist Eric Nylund has joined Amazon Game Studios as its director of narrative design, according to his updated LinkedIn profile page.
Nylund spent 13 years at Microsoft Game Studios as its director of narrative design. At that post, he led a team of producers and designers in creating stories for the company's stable of franchises.
He is also the author of numerous Halo novels, including Halo: The Fall of Reach and Halo: First Strike, among others.
It is not clear what Nylund is working on at Amazon. A Facebook post captured by CouchCampus quotes Nylund as saying, "I can't talk about specifics, but I wouldn't be there unless something cool was brewing."
Sources told Game Informer last week that Amazon is working on an Android-powered console, aiming to release the device by the end of 2013.
An Amazon representative was not immediately available to comment.
